Intel and Ziva Dynamics: Powering the Animation Revolution

Legendary Pictures’ Pacific Rim: Uprising* is a sci-fi action thriller in which giant robots battle giant space creatures, called Kaiju, amidst a sea of destruction. As the much-vaunted sequel to Pacific Rim, this action-packed film was released to wide admiration for its special effects. Creating animated characters like the Kaiju that look realistic is a challenging task, as any visual-effects ...(VFX) studio will tell you. And considering the sheer size of these creatures, DNEG—the VFX studio in charge of developing the animations for Pacific Rim: Uprising—had some real challenges.

Multiply that by the Kaiju characters’ sheer size and any discrepancies come front and center.
