Press release from cebas Visual Technology:
Production company Digital Frontier used thinkingParticles, one of the flagship VFX products developed by cebas Visual Technology, to create the visual effects for Japan’s 3D computer-animated CG film, TEKKEN Blood Vengeance 3D.
Based on the successful game franchise TEKKEN from NAMCO BANDAI Games, the movie, directed by Yoichi Mori and written by Dai Sato, is a standout piece of art offering a thrilling storyline and high quality visual effects.
Based in Tokyo, Digital Frontier has been engaged in large-scale production of CG feature films for the movie and game industries since it was founded in 2000.
Digital Frontier’s Senior Designer Yoshiharu Komiya and Designer Gen Ito shared their experiences working on the movie, using thinkingParticles™ and the challenges they faced in creating such compelling scenes.
When asked about the most difficult aspect of the project, Ito explained that simulations were becoming more complex, with much more realistic looking results. “In my opinion, automatically handling secondary fracture effects is one of tP's strengths,” he added.
“I was expecting tP to be difficult to use, however it was not. The FX TD creates a complex setup of multiple nodes then the designers only have to fiddle with object replacement and parameter settings! You can easily create complex effects with tP," Komiya said.
