I still need to watch Travis' rap video. I saw a thumbnail for it. :lol:
My names Chilly Tee and I direct a VW painted yellow
It transforms into a robot and is a really fine fellow.

Jason Smith talks to Vincent at ArtofVfx:

About 1500 vfx shots spread across ILM's locales, Rodeo fx, Scanline and Base, with an inhouse group doing 2D fixes on about 400 shots.

The Cybertron opening came late in post and was done in about six weeks, start to finish. :eek:

Doesn't take long to animate characters when they have no sense of scale or weight. *ba-dum-tssh*

But regardless, that is a massively impressive feat. Six weeks for a 2.5 minute, entirely CG sequence? I can imagine the all-nighters...

Those close-ups of Bumblebee never fail to make my mouth drop at their photorealism. :omg:

Interesting that they CG'd Hailee's arms in that shot at 1:25. Anyone have any guesses as to why?

EDIT: Nevermind. If I bothered to look closely, I would've seen the wrappings on her elbow that they digitally removed.

Such a shame that this couldn't have been included in the Blu-Ray's lacklustre special features.
