is a phrase that
multitude of different animated effects. Anything from lightning bolts to flames to streaking images
or glowing eyes, diaphanous gas, shattering glass, etc. You name it.
Most animation effects are
done using CGI, so I've made it a career objective to fully understand
and selectively exploit all the various software platforms in use - and in
developement - to get the very best from each of them.
Clip #1 :From the Motion Picture "GI Joe"- The nanomites consist of several layers of particles, hundreds of millions of them, which then grow in number as they consume the metal of the Eiffel Tower. The Tower is progressively de-constructed. Incredible work done by Digital Domain.
Clip #2 :From the Motion Picture "GI Joe"- A series of shots that demonstrate that power of Houdini Software to simulate the shattering glass. Another feature is to look at the concussion wave of the weapon. FX Animation there, too. Of course, there's MUCH more to these shots than just the FX Animation - virtual environments, digital doubles, etc. Excellent work done by Digital Domain.Clip #3 :From the Motion Picture "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island"- A fine example of the beautiful work done by my good friends at Scanline. It's a completely virtual environment which has several very dense particle simulations; Ocean, Twisters, Clouds, Rain - and of course, a Helicopter - all done in Native Stereo 3D....Simply phenomenal!
