FUR & MUSCLES

Our creatures are built anatomically correct from bones to fur. Constant development of proprietary technology allows us to speed up these traditionally time consuming steps. Allowing us to bring these techniques, traditionally reserved for the motion picture industry, to the advertising world.

Cars

We create photorealistic cars for any screen. We design and produce high-end 3D visualizations, animations and visual effects for the car industry.

Our photorealistic outcome is used for images, films and interactive applications like a car configurator. Among others we work for brands such as Volkswagen, Volvo, Toyota, Renault, and Lexus.

CGI car replacement

We are specialized in replacing products in existing content by using CGI. This enables brands to efficiently reuse content such as TV commercials, product stills and animations. Our VFX team is able to replace original products with e.g. a new product pack or even a complete new car.

On the right an example of how we replaced a Renault car. The red Renault is original and the black Renault is created in CGI.

Crowds

Build in collaboration with directors and agency creatives the Postoffice crowd tool focusses on directability. Several easy to understand sliders control massive amounts of characters in realtime. Allowing the director to have instant feedback and try out ideas.

The Postoffice crowd tool offers full creative freedom for every crowd project. Initially build for stadiums but useful in any situation that requires a big amount of characters. The characters are fully customizable in look and movements.

The stadium toolkit is a unique piece of software which enables us to create any type of stadium with quick turnaround. A couple of sliders control the rings, rows and aisles to quickly create a unique stadium. Select primary colors, import flags and the entire stadium will quickly have the desired look. This can be done in realtime allowing instant director feedback for quick turnarounds.
