Zoic Studios Breaks New VFX Ground in Fox Series Drive
New Render Features in LightWaveŽ v9.2 Help Make Demanding Car Race Sequences Photoreal

Las Vegas, Nevada -- NAB -- April 16, 2007 -- NewTek, Inc., innovator of award-winning 3D animation and video products, today revealed the extensive use of LightWave 3DŽ by the artists at Zoic Studios in the creation of the new Fox Series, Drive. The series as described by Fox is "an action-fueled drama following a diverse group of Americans driving for their lives (or the lives of their loved ones) in a sinister, cross-country road race." The show features locations all over the U.S. but the production is headquartered in Los Angeles, resulting in the extensive use of green-screen photography to transport the audience from location to location. Zoic Studios has developed an entirely new approach to the visual effects for Drive by introducing an omniscient camera that moves seamlessly from the open road in and around moving vehicles.
