Here's a major PP project we're currently tendering to, obviously not in the graphic sense but curious as to how the compositing is done on this scale?

Thanks :)

That looks like a lot of work. Very well done. In some places I forgot I was watching CG.

Indeed Steve, it's quite amazing.

Looks like everything was modeled and rendered. Epic amount of asset creation ...

Indeed. Lots and lots of low poly buildings with projection maps.

Very nicely done. One thing bothers me though (not from a CG sense)... I don't see any railings along the tracks; the trains just scoot along next to people, busy intersections, next to streets, etc. I realize this could be a WIP, so forgive my observation.

Probably based on the existing track running the same trams. They do run on dedicated paths and move slowly amongst pedestrians but I can think of a few spots where it might be an issue. TGI's ( tactile ground indicators ) are used here rather than railings.

Kinda wish they'd greenscreen'd the guy reading the newspaper, rather than just using a static trans-map ..... he's gumming up the whole project!

I have a feeling those people are RPC people

They are effectively 2d sprites, but as the camera moves around them, the plugin changes the sprite to look like it's rotating around a 3d character, when in actual fact it's simply a 2d billboard.

Nice work, and on a huge scale!

Wow the amount of work - modeling, animating and especially rendering that animation is amazing. If you look on YouTube you can see a total of 3 animations they did. The sophistication and improvement from the first one to the last one is quite a jump.

Hey links? I remember about 4 years ago recommending someone from these forums for this. "Dodgy" from memory. Would have been a bit of a SF back then.

Here you go:

I mean, one goes to all that effort.....even if the greenscreen couple behind him are from a stock library, you'd really want to tie-up such a prominent foreground asset......nitpicking perhaps, but it's stuff like this that grates.......

Ah, wow. I see what you mean. He's "Captain Fathom"... funnily enough, my wife is convinced the green screened dude behind him is the former chief of staff for the previous Labor transport minister and they don't appear to have noticed that either :)

I wonder if they used lowpoly geo for the aerial shots and on top they projected photography + hand tweaked image maps. Anyways, it must have been tedious.
