None of chosen environments made for straightforward shoots; the Beijing market proved particularly challenging. The team created new techniques to deal with ever-moving, ever-changing subject matter of the bustling, humid environment. Once in post-production, artists carried out extensive texture and HDR surveys of the viewer’s point-of-view. A seamless base layer of each environment was built, for use as a canvas to house the video capture from the custom camera array. The stitching was completed mostly in Nuke, with proprietary in-house toolsets used to finesse the shots.
The end result is three unique world-class VR experiences, each delivering a relatable, inspirational story.
