Cgi

Hi guys,

I was recently read in a magazine that some companies are now utilisng CGI as a way to minimise production / shooting costs.

As I understand it CGI is now more commonly being used for car shots, as its far cheaper to just CGI the car and composite into a background rather then take what could be a very rare vehicle and transport it accross the planet for what is normally a desert shoot!

this got me thinking, how realistic can CGIs of people be, as I know from many of the threads people are trying to get that 'illustrated look' and so could CGI be a totally different approach?

Just a thought...:-)

Re: Cgi

Very impressive video again, thanks garibaldi! Looking at the image of Morgan Freemen, there is absolutely no way that I could tell that the cgi was not an actual photo of MF.

I wonder how long it will be before producing cgis is cheaper than the actual photography process?
