    Wrangling a Gas Giant for Jupiter Ascending



    For the film Jupiter Ascending Double Negative were required to deliver shots that included the creation and rendering of huge environments composed completely of gasses, as well as large scale smoke clouds covering and flowing between kilometers of built up industrial area. We will discuss the use of clustered simulation to distribute large volume simulations, the use of Volume UVs to speed up look development, the use of a timeless advection technique to easily apply movement from a sculpted vector field to a volume and the use of VDB volume stamping to create pyroclastic clouds with minimal simulation.
