The first shot from my personal project called 'The Arrival'. Matte, done in 4k and 16-bit, was projected onto 3D geometry within Nuke and comped with additional effects, like animated 3D airship, waterfall (particle flow in 3dsMax), various bits of moving fog, clouds, water blinks, etc.
A frame from a complex 3D matte painting, projected from 10 separate cameras onto 3D city (over 600k polys). Both, cameras and geo were exported to Nuke for compositing of the final shot, with additional animated elements.
Winter scenery created in Photoshop and projected onto 3D geometry in Maya.
