Description:


    “Appleseed: Ex Machina” is a full-CG animation feature that uses motion capture and delicate in-depth toon shading facial expressions to maximize both action and character expression.It combines deformed, anime-like design and modeling based on anatomy to achieve the best balance within the characters. Also, with toon shader and ambient occlusion, the production team achieved an illustration-like effect, rather than a cell-animation appearance.
