VFX Lidar

Capture any physical location, set, or asset and convert it into a 3D model!

Lidar

Wide range of environmental targets

“Light Detection & Ranging” (LiDAR) allows for 3D Scanning at virtually unlimited scales. Anything from airplanes to airports, race cars to raceways…the possibilities are endless!

LiDAR is ideal for digital duplication of large-scale objects and environments when digital models and CAD formats are otherwise unavailable, very complex and/or cost-prohibitive to acquire or reproduce.

Key Benefits of LiDAR

Z

Long-Range Capability

Scan target distance can range up to 350 meters from each camera position at max resolution.

Z

Complete & Perfect Perspective

When your crew creates a scene and it’s critical to get every detail perfect for multiple cuts, LiDAR can capture the entirety of the environment’s moment — from any perspective without missing the smallest details.

Non-Invasive, Non-Disruptive

LiDAR technology is silent and invisible. Scans can be done at any time of day or night, allowing us to work around your shooting schedule.

Speed of Capture

Faster than a speeding bullet… The LiDAR instrument fires rapid pulses of laser light at a surface, some at up to 150,000 pulses per second. A sensor on the instrument measures the amount of time it takes for each pulse to bounce back. This makes LiDAR ideal for building models of large sets in shorter time than other methods.

Complete & Perfect Perspective

When your crew creates a scene and it’s critical to get every detail perfect for multiple cuts, LiDAR can capture the entirety of the environment’s moment from a consistent perspective without missing any of the small details. LiDAR captures the macro and the micro so we don’t have to remember everything.

Expert Physics Simulation

We analyze and capture real-world environments for VFX to 3D model for the CGI world. We capture with the highest of fidelity, so that you can create! Often our Hybrid Hand-held Photogrammetry is combined to help bring the full location to life.

“Gentle Giant did some wonderful maquettes for THE INCREDIBLES taken directly from our animators’ digital poses, and they retained all the individual attitudes that we worked so hard to realize in our characters. Being able to touch something that was formerly only digital information, to have our characters go out into the world exactly the way we intended them to, is immensely satisfying.”
