We shot a group of people on our green screen. Then I used the replicator to make the crowd super big. With the stage built from scratch and other things the replicator really bogged down Motion. I ended up deleting the replicated crowd and just duplicating them and placing them only in areas that they would be seen during the camera move. I think this project pushed Motion to a braking point. So I had to come up with a few work arounds. I feel / hope the next version will have those problems worked out. All in all I'm happy I did it in Motion and felt it turned out great.
That's very good work... I'm most interested in the last effect where the paint is thrown and mixed and falls away - Can you share your secrets on that one? The paint doesn't look real enough to be actual footage but it behaves in a way that I didn't think motion was capable of doing - it looks more like Cinema4D work to me.
