We are proud to offer a one-stop LiDAR scanning service which we offer as a “wet hire” (device plus technician(s) to operate).
Being one of the few, if not only studio to offer this service in the entire country, we offer this service at a cost-effective rate which will assist your own on-set supervision, digital set extension, motion tracking and modelling processes. We can also advise on correct workflow and methodology to handle the scanned point cloud data which we provide from your location scan to assist your artists within your existing VFX Pipeline.
This service also benefits other industries, such as Architectural Visualization and Civil Engineering where accuracy down to a 10th of a millimeter is required.
Rates are quoted on a case-by-case basis plus expenses (minimum use policy applies).
Our expertise in modelling has expanded with our talented, experienced artists who keep moving forward with new technologies. We create models that may be organic in nature, such as various creatures or characters, or rigid “hard surface” objects such as cars, buildings, props or sets. We make use of a wide range of reference materials and closely follow edge topology and structure to ensure the cleanest most effective result.
LIGHTING AND SHADING
Our lighting & shading artists have the ability to create variations of shade, color intensity, shadows and lighting design for the exterior and interior scenarios, along with a solid familiarity with photo realistic lighting and shading in a production environment. We have a strong opinion that lighting and shading can seriously make or break a shot so it is one of the most meticulous processes we go through.
ANIMATION AND RIGGING
We have the ability to breathe life into characters and drive performance. Our animators drive the performance and give life to objects and characters, showcasing thought process, mood, action, reaction, objective (etc.) just like an actor. We have the ability to understand the character’s motivation and be able to convey this to the audience effectively and realistically.
Our expertise includes creating infinite ranges of effects such as fire, snow, debris, wind and water, to name a few. We use design and technical skills along with cutting edge software to simulate complex structures and motion. Our artists possess the talent and have the tools to create effects that have no limit to the imagination. We bring ideas to life through use of movement, storytelling and timing. We often realize what seems impossible at the base.
We have built a solid expertise over the years based on virtual environments and enthralling digital paintings. We create illusion of an environment that would be too expensive or impossible to build or visit for a film-maker. Our artists and technicians creates seamless effects and environments beyond the bounds of possibility. Our production pipeline, our tools and our specific camera projection techniques offer us a competitive advantage in the field of digital decors.
Our artists have the ability in creating 3D cameras and other motion files that adopt the same movements as the original background plate. This enables the live action to seamlessly interact with the CG elements. Matchmoves are then delivered to the rest of the Visual Effects Department for use in adding other 3D CG elements such as animated characters, creatures, props, digital set extensions or digital enhancement to real objects or characters in a plate.
We have an experienced compositing team capable of rising to any challenge. Our artists have worked on creating amazing visual sequences which are often a carefully integrated combination of elements layered together into a seamless mind-blowing experience. We have prowess whether integrating live-action elements or complex CG assets.
