To create the project’s ambitious slate of original design elements and animated content, including swords, arrows and flags, Spinifex 3D lead Pepin Portingale and his fellow artists used Autodesk 3ds Max. Matt Lock handled the project’s complex motion design, compositing and VFX challenges, finishing the HD content using Adobe After Effects as the predominant compositing platform.

We are very proud to know that, for every person who goes to Yan City now and in the future, ‘The Past Meets the Future’ will help them to fully experience its wonders.”
