London has some absolutely gorgeous theaters! We were contacted to recreate realistic 3D versions of some iconic London theaters, which would allow customers to see where they would sit, prior to paying for their seat.
Approximately 6 ornate London Theaters were scanned, captured, processed, and rendered out. We had between 350 – 2500 renders per London Theater, since we delivered a true representation of each seat location.
One of the challenges we faced was getting enough time to do a full fledged scan of the sets. We only had between 1 – 3 hrs to scan these giant environments. Another issue was lighting in these spaces, mostly mood lighting, or direct top down. Our talented artists were able to use the scan as reference, and patch/remodel a large chunk of it.
