TMNT: Out of the Shadows features believable CG character performances for six lead characters created with equal parts performance capture and keyframe animation. Developed for the film, ILM Muse allows for the actor’s performance to be captured on-set or in a volume at the highest fidelity. Both were done for the film utilizing Technoprops award-winning HMC units. This becomes the basis for the CG character’s performance which then have the ability to be manipulated as necessary by an animator.
Between ILM San Francisco and Vancouver, 768 visual effects shots were completed.
