We've recently created a 30 second animation to advertise the Terracotta Army's arrival in the UK in 2018. This is a brief look into some of our simulations, some used some not. The project generated over 10 Terrabytes of simualtion data.
We've recently been shooting up in the lake district.. cant beat the weather to throw in a continuity error.... Sun??? who'd have thought it?
Before we release our case study about this project, we thought we share this short film about the process of 3D printing Liverpool across 3 months earlier this year.
Finishing up on some cgi renders, project case study soon
This has nothing to do with motion graphics... we're just slightly amazed how good the new freedrum virtual drums ticks are... now it will really never be a quiet day in the studio.
#WIP creating fire and ink for use in storytelling
We've recently been working on a few interior renders, quick glimpse at our process
work in progress got done catalogue product shots
Embarking on another 3d print based project ..
Few short clips from a longer on going project.
Recently we've 3D printed some nifty products that help organise our production gear in the studio. We're making available all the STL source files so you can print your own. All 3D print files are available here for download. Let us know how you use them.
We're giving away all the scene files for our birthday celebration 12 series. The first one can be downloaded here.. It includes all python tags, lights, HDR's and textures in C4D format.. Feel free to use it how ever you see fit, deconstruct, rip off, see how it works. If you include it anything a mention would be nice.
This footage has not been shot particularly well. But this part of the experiment was never about getting the exposures correct. It was about how we deal with using the anamorphic lens. It's huge, the weight of is quite exceptional. Moving forward, when we take it on to a real job, we're building a bespoke rig that will be attached to the ronin and other gimbals. The image quality it produces is beautiful, especially when you take into consideration the lanes it's attached to, a 50mm prime. This now allows for super wide shots with amazing depth of field. Everything feels like classic westerns, the small distortions towards the edge of the lens adds charm.
The Anamorphic lens shoots extra height, capturing more pixels than a regular lens. Once decompressed the wide 2.35.1 image is produced.
Here’s a spherical vs. anamorphic bokeh comparison from an article by B&H Photo Video:
