TG in the last Star Wars??
« on: January 23, 2018, 06:46:39 PM »
Just went through the list of films were TG was used and spotted the last SW movie? Wow! Does someone knows what part??? It seems TG is used in many big movies but do we know what part of the move was created with TG? It would be awesome to show a still picture next to the poster on the site. That would be a really good PR for TG!!

Unfortunately we seldom get details about which scenes TG is used in, specifically. There are no doubt even films TG has been used on that we are not even aware of! Because of the way the industry works there is a sad disconnect between the people who own and produce the content (movie studios) and some of the people/companies that actually generate/create that content (VFX houses, etc.). So even if a VFX company might want to mention what software it used, or at least tell the developers, they often can't, at least not without significant "red tape". In communicating privately with VFX studios for things like technical support, they often can't tell us what they're working on either...

That being said, for Star Wars Episode VII and Rogue One Terragen was used mostly for planetary orbit shots. Presumably the same is true for VIII. If we ever get more info we'll happily share, of course!

You're not wrong...

Here's great one...

There's a toy company that approached WB with a view to releasing action figures from the vintage TV series "V" which if you know a little about toy history you might know they made but never released figures during the series original run and that they would be highly sought after by figure collectors.

Now, they were told they have to "prove themselves" first by producing and selling merchandise for another WB property, except they're not allowed to tell anyone what it is, so basically they can do no pre merchandising of a mystery property (which then has to shift WB worthy volumes) in order to secure a property that has pre-whacked fans.

Yep, NDA's are a bitch!
