Compared to a decade ago, the movie theater landscape of has completely changed with the introduction of CGI...but how does it work exactly? The folks over at Ember Labs have provided a complete breakdown in an animated spot developed by team artists in full 4K resolution. This clip posted below shows exactly how these creators integrate live-action footage and insert their computer generated characters into each scene.
Availability of CGI software and faster computing over the years have allowed individual artists and small companies to produce professional-grade films, games, and digital art right from their PCs. Unlike landscapes which are fractal generated or randomized, our technology has adapted to allow artists to implement live-footage to speed up development and add a touch of realism which can be difficult to replicate at times.
