NewTek is pleased to announce today that CafeFX used LightWave 3DŽ for the 3D elements in nearly 600 shots produced for the blockbuster film Sin City, a stylistic groundbreaker directed by Robert Rodriguez that is now filling theaters coast to coast. Based on Frank Miller's acclaimed graphic novels, the film visually recreates the noir graphic style Miller used in his stories, requiring virtually every shot to include effects work. Jeff Goldman and Everett Burrell supervised two of CafeFX's teams for the work on Sin City; Goldman commented that of the nearly 600 shots, "Virtually all used LightWaveŽ, but probably a good 550 were primarily LightWave due to the amount of 3D CG required for the shot."
