Production: "& Son" Scene 5 Mark 3 (with 2D)

Hello Everyone,

This post is about Scene 5 and the inclusion of 2D as it is the most 2D infested shot that Stitcheroo has. In this particular scene they are the crowds of people in the cues, the individual frogs and one 2D animated frog on planes. Towards the end a bit of animation was applied to static characters to make them move crudely in reaction to the frog parade. Its actually quite a funny sequence all together.

The video above shows the playblasted shots 50, 51, 52, 53 & 54. 51 is the only shot not to have any 2D as it involves Benjamin playing puppy eyes to his sceptical father. For clarity we placed in same scene twice with and without reference to show its influence as well as its "clean" state as windows all about the screen kind of take away from the experience within the playblasts.

Last but not least are clean renders from shots 50, 52, 53 & 54 to show how the 2D looks in the same lit scene with the 3D. Some elements had to be adjusted to not react to occlusion to avoid plane cutting in Maya... Others were kept in to ground certain 2D elements. Its a love hate relationship, maybe there will be another way to deal with this in future renditions.

Over & Out,
