How can a road be replaced with a washed out bridge?

Hi,

I saw a BMW commercial a while back showing how they shot video footage of a car driving threw the mountains and had to stop suddenly at abridge that was washed out by rain.

They computer generated the bridge. I would like to know what kind of software or presets allows for such generation?

Thanks.

In Adobe After Effects forum, I received this from:

"I believe this is the video you were asking about? "











"As Jason and Steve mentioned, there's a lot of skill and talent required; this is not a canned effect. But don't take our word for it -- check out the article about what work was necessary and what tools were used.

I can't believe this spot is 4 years old already... "



To which I replied:

Thanks Walter.

In the article found in your link mentioned Particular, After Effects and Imagineer's Motor, of which I also have Mocha and Mokey (I've had fun with for 3 years.) "

It's nice to know that the software that was used is already at hand so that Im not spinning my wheels trying to make something work that is not capable of doing so.

I happen to know that Mocha will work as well as Motor, if not better.

btw, Grossmann's "tail end" effect with the rolling stones was awesome.
