    With his superhuman transformation to Spider-Man, Peter Parker comes to terms with the responsibility that comes with great power. Sony Pictures Imageworks embarked on two years of extensive R&D to accomplish the synthetic cityscape that is instantly recognizable as New York. This CG environment serves as a dramatic stage for CG Spider-Man and Green Goblin and allows complete freedom for the virtual camera moves necessary to capture aerobatic web-slinging and pitched battles between the arch-enemies. All architectural elements were created entirely with geometry and texture, balanced for sharpness, contrast, and saturation, and designed to work for both day and night shots.
