USC ICT’s Fantastic looking Light Stage 5, description via: BOING BOING
“Light Stage is a special effects system for films that records how people and objects look when lit from every possible direction. That way, virtual versions of actors can be accurately “lit” to perfectly match the background set.”
Most recently used in Avatar and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, whilst amazing technology it’s not without its flaws. The number one being it can’t do whole bodys. Light stage 6 has this covered however and looks even more sci-fi – image after the break.
