Brisbane Panorama

17 Feb 2005

Animation Research Ltd. was commissioned by The Partners for one of our most ambitious projects yet – to photo realistically reproduce the entire city of Brisbane Australia, showing what the view would be from the windows of a proposed 70-story apartment complex situated in downtown Brisbane. Regulations ruled out the use of helicopters so we were required to create accurate views for every fifth floor at the four points of the compass and at different times of the day. Our team worked for 10 weeks to produce a time lapse animation of the city spanning a 24 hour period. Supported by Dolby digital environmental surround sound, the animation was 2800 × 700 pixels and screened at a massive 10 × 2 metres.

ARL’s proprietary rendering technology Katachi, allowed us to create an impressive 360 degree panorama, with an unprecedented level of detail. Katachi’s versatility allows us to easily handle massive scene geometry, and render a fully ray traced animation and integrate ambient occlusion, as well as procedurally switch individual city lights on and off at different times of day.
