Saber-toothed cat skull 3d animation

3d animation of a child with saber tooth cat skull mask

NFS was promoting their goal card program during the morning news and needed something that would grab a child’s attention. With a limited budget, and footage of a child against a green screen in a shower cap with dots all over it, we started work. We had the model of the Sabre toothed cat from the printed pieces and began the project by tracking the child’s head. After tracking was complete, we added that information to layout in lightwave and started pulling test renders with lighting and shading. The story behind this was that the child found the skull in a cave and was wearing it as a mask. After every layer completed rendering we went on to compositing which really didn’t take as long as we expected.

Seeing the final piece, we think everything came together nicely!

Everything in this video is 100% computer generated.

Using 3d modeling and rendering for your product line instead of hiring a photographer can save you time and money. It takes a good amount of time to find a good product photographer, and typically they aren’t cheap. Not only do you have to pay for the photographer but also all the time it takes
