This year the production used Moment Factory (Canada) and Shop (UK) to produce the content. Some of Moment Factory’s content uses Notch with tied occlusion and UV layers to control the placement and distortion of the content and live IMAG.
The content houses were able to test content concepts for the new tour with the 3D model and work out how rendered content would look, saving a great amount of time given the different depths of the stage set. Mead also established the feed maps before arriving at rehearsals. “The disguise mapping techniques and use of UV meshes offered advantages over other systems,” he notes.
“The servers are really easy to setup and install into our workflow,” he says. “And the timeline and modules are easy to create and modify. We didn’t really need to ask for much support from the disguise team, but I knew it would be amazing if I did!”
