Axis Animation have recently released two behind the scenes videos for their game related vfx work. The studio has been involved in creating Halo 4 Spartan Ops, an episodic adventure that blends immersive storytelling, high-quality cinematic sequences and action-packed gameplay to deliver an unprecedented serialized experience. The video features Concept Art and Design, Modelling, Storyreel, Performance capture, Animation, Lighting and VFX.
The second behind the scenes video features characters from Street Fighter and Tekken integrated into a live action commercial. The actors heads, covered by some fetching green stockings, were tracked to allow the CG character heads to be composited into the scene.
