Bad Robot Productions – Intro Recreation

Bad Robot is my favorite company – founded by J.J. Abrams and standing behind Super 8, Lost, Star Trek or the newest Mission Impossible. The Robot was modeled in 3ds max, everything was put together in After Effects. Thanks for watching!

The robot was modeled in 3ds max solely from various photo references, the materials used were very simple – basic material with noise in the bump map and some silver, yellow and black matte materials for the eyes, the helix thing on the top of his head and eyebrows. Pflow simulation was used for the grass. After rendering the ambient occlusion pass, I put everything together in Adobe After Effects CS5 – color correction, directional blur for the robot and other adjustments like contrast and levels.

I hope you like the result

    @matthhw11221 Hard to say how long in total, the ambient? occlusion pass took about 2 hours, the grass took some time too. Other than that it was pretty manageable. Thanks!
