On set, there were 4 primary panels, 2 square panels, and various irregular objects on set (spheres, cubes, etc). Depending on the shot (close, medium, wide), there may be multiple panels visible – all requiring animation timed to the on set talent.
Multiply that by an estimated 50 minute presentation, and you get a staggering amount of animation!
Background animation loops
In order to complete all the panel animation on time and on budget, reusable background animation loops were created. These loops were then used to fill the panels, as well as composited underneath animated titles.
Still, hundreds of animated titles needed to be generated for the entire presentation.
