View Full Version : Animal Armageddon - Vue in Action

01 January 2009, 06:10 PM
Howdy folks... just wanted to drop a line so that everyone can see some Vue in action on television.

Animal Armageddon will begin airing on Animal Planet Thursday, February 12th at 9pm... here's a link to see the trailer which does feature a Vue sky or two.

The show was produced in Lightwave 3D 9.3, animated in Messiah, with some skys (particularly ones with cloud motion) and some scattered landscapes created in Vue. Vue was used more as the series went on since we were learning as we went though the main hero environments were still done in Lightwave using HD Instance for plant life. We also started adding in Geocontrol2 landscapes and expect to use more of them.

The team at RadicalFX (who also did Dogfights) are still working on the final five episodes of the 8 episode show.

If you're wanting to get a fix of various dinosaurs and other ancient habitats being destroyed by various calamities, this is your show. And if you just want to see Vue being used in fun ways, we've got that for ya too.

Thanks for taking a look, feel free to spread the word and we all hope you enjoy the ride!

Joe Lawson, VFX Team Leader, Radical FX
