Imagineer Receives Sci-Tech Award
Level 256 VFX is a modern digital artist collective based in Los Angeles that specializes in everything 2D and 2.5D. In 2012 alone, Level 256 delivered effects shots on The Bourne Legacy, Battleship, The Dictator and This is 40. Level 256 is a long-time mocha user and has made it a key component in its VFX workflow. Says Seth Kleinberg, head of production, “Level 256 Visual Effects has been using Imagineer Systems' products for years and it has continuously allowed us to execute and troubleshoot difficult shots time and time again. Not only has mocha saved us time and money, but it has also helped us re-imagine ways to approach complex problems. We would like to congratulate them on this amazing honor and special achievement."
Planar Tracking has also become an important part of the technical process used to convert feature films from 2D to stereo 3D. To convert films, almost every object within every frame has to be segmented, a process called rotoscoping. mocha adds significant time savings in the rotoscoping and object removal process and has proven to be invaluable to customers at major post production and stereo conversion facilities around the world on 3D blockbuster sensations as Alice and Wonderland, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, and Titanic 3D.
Additionally, industry leaders have also recognized the value of Imagineer’s Planar Tracking and software developer’s kit (Planar Tracker SDK), which has culminated in several strategic partnerships and licensing agreements with post production technology companies such as Adobe Systems, Quantel and FXhome.
