Mecha obsession [Dec. 6th, 2004|11:21 pm]
Just some more on the Cool Citroen C4 advert, Kevin Rose has a higher rez Quicktime version that is part of an interview with the company behind it (which is the same company as the Appleseed style police robot Video from a while back).

One thing that surprised me after reading the interview, was that the whole advert is rendered. I thought they used a real filmed background plate with a CGI Car/Robot composited in. Turns out the background uses image based rendering (like the subway scene at the end of 'The Matrix'). I really did not think we had got to the level yet, but well reality is only 80 Million polygons and an X800 or 6800 Ultra can nearly do the figure, so I should have guessed.
