Throughout the project, Rodeo FX were tasked with a variety of work, across many sequences in the film. We created a variety of visual effects, from animation, to creature work, to digidoubles, environment, and extensive FX simulation.

Rodeo FX work can be seen throughout the entire film, including the opening shot of the film.

Some of Rodeo FX favourite work was creating photoreal CG Camel assets, animating and integrating them into a large variety of wide, medium and close up shots.

Some of Rodeo FX most gratifying work can be seen in the Magic River Waterfall sequence, where we animated our photo real CG Horse asset, and other CG digidouble heroes jumping into the water, then through animation, creature fx, muscle system, hair grooming and FX water simulation, created a shot where the CG Horse whips their head around like a classic shampoo advertisement.

Once again tasked with creating a CG Hippo in the Hippo’s Back sequence with water simulation and interaction, and our team also created a rather large CG Snake for the Snake Surprise sequence that grabs a CG Digidouble of Oberon, which we animated, lit and comped.

In the Plane Drop sequence, Rodeo FX created the CG plane and added animation to our main digidoubles characters falling into the sand dune with blasts of sand thru FX simulation.

As was previously done for the last movie, Player Menus were created and updated for each character, getting new Strengths and Weaknesses for the story line.

The Magic Map reveals were ours once again, where the maps and locations appeared for each level. One shot in particular had a significant upgrade where we added a camera motion which zoomed in on one of the main locations. Our Matte Painting department had to fully recreate that map over some 2.5D layering to get that 3D space feeling.

Rodeo FX were the main vendor responsible for the massive Ice Wall sequence, creating a huge fully 3D asset incorporating many passes of FX simulation for snow.

We worked extensively on the Berry Tree room, where we were tasked with creating the actual large tree, the berry Soul transfer and the magic water effect. The team approached that effect via some multi 3D FX passes lit and comped.

Once again, Rodeo FX is proud to have had the chance to have contributed to this challenging and entertaining film.
