Here is a video of our simulation work for Now You See Me.
Published:
In a major sequence inside the Las Vegas MGM Grand, which was more than a minute long, RODEO FX filled the entire arena with a mix of 2D crowd elements and CG crowd using “off the shelf” systems such as Kinect and PS3 cameras for motion capture and 3D scanning.
 
Here is an in-depth look at how we created the VFX for this sequence:

We also used particle simulation to add millions of Euros falling onto the audience and created and animated the CG “Crusher”, a compactor-like prop, that teleports a character into a Paris bank vault. Rodeo FX’s VFX Supervisor Ara Khanikian said, “This was a really fun project for us – one that allowed us to really push our creative boundaries and create a very wide range of VFX.”
