The Desolate Iceberg

Sometimes in life we shoot a location that isn't quite what we need. However, with the power of modern technology we have the option to sculpt the landscape into what we want. This project is a fine example of taking and interesting location to a higher level. We started with a still from an Antarctic iceberg plain, and added a sky replacement, 3d rendered volumetric clouds, fluid dynamic water and particle based mist effects. View the sample movie to see more of this projects details. What isn't shown here is the additional branch of the project showing a snowy land mass instead of an icy ocean environment. Both scenes are on the video.

Erupting Volcano

Pictures speak louder than words, and in this case the proverb is true. Take a still photo of this volcano, and add a little CG magic to create a brilliant background plate for the most demanding film or tv projects. We use maya and cinema 4d particles to create dynamic clouds, billowing smoke and major fireballs. We put it all together in the Fusion user interface, and achieve great results in a considerably short amount of time. Be sure to watch the sample movie below.

Blue Sky Against Trees

This last project was designed to show keying techniques in sky removals. Learn how to use the Keyer to removal tonal values in the sky to create a matte for your footage. Learn about saturation and luminance in sky based shadows, and change the temperature, time of day and season of the final shot.
