A few hours ago, VFX Art Director Jonathan Berube posted in the ArtStation a Warcraft Movie Poster Matte Painting. It shows Durotan from the back, looking toward Stormwind.
The cathedral file, also known as Stormwind was passed along as an alembic file, which really made the massive mesh data management a breeze. It was the first time I had the chance to work with the Alembic file format and Maya’s integration with the file format is seamless. I was also surprised to see that Keyshot was also able to load Alembic files seamlessly as well.
All elements were rendered in Keyshot for quick lighting & shader work except the foreground character, “Duratang” which came from ILM.
The whole was painted on for integration purposes….
