Time vs. Quality in a stereo 3D production pipeline
Over at the StudioGPU blog, they’ve got some information about another interesting video to debut at IBC in September, a music video for the “Pansy Warrior Princess” site, shot almost entirely in Stereoscopic 3D by Sterling Youngman.
The entire PWP music video project will be CGI, except for Pansy and her band, (which will be shot on green screen using Silicon Imaging’s new 3D 2K camera system). The original plan called for rendering the CG with Brazil. However once Youngman committed to going stereoscopic, it was clear that lighting and rendering the CG under the time constraint of being ready for IBC, would not be feasible without a big studio budget for lighters, compositors and render farms. Enter MachStudio Pro.
The site has information on how Youngman pulled the project together including previz, greenscreen effects in stereo, and doing it all without any huge studio backing.
