  • 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...:-)

      Ever heard of the company called image-metrics? Let Emily's 100% CGI face tell you about them.

          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?

              I was inspired by one of the members "mcdronkz" who posted his/her work in the past.

              I am the newbie on this forum and tried to be professional high end retoucher.

              Compositing car on a racetrack
              by wilco-photo
              Hi everyone, I have a photoshoot coming up with a Lexus IS-F but I want that car on a race track but it’s impossible to get the car there.

              I can get to the track without car and photograph the background.
              But this is something I never done before, I know the photoshop part but...

              by discocandy
              I've been asked to do some retouch on a 3d car but the fun is they want it to look as it has done a long race like this image:

              I already tried making ink splatters on paper, make a brush...
