Description:


    For these six shots that Digital Domain created for director Peter Jackson’s first installment of the Lord Of The Rings epic, Visual Effects Supervisor Mark Forker and his team created a flash-flood of water, with a realistic look and behavior embedded, animated water horses, and tumbling CG Ringwraiths that had to match their live-action counterparts. These elements were seamlessly combined to create a breathtaking action sequence. Practical water elements were combined with water created using Digital Domain’s proprietary volume-rendering software Voxel B along with Houdini particle generators, while the horses were animated in Maya.
