Refractions were the name of the game here. Starting out by recreating each environment (a total of 9 in this commercial), we then had each camera and car tracked. Each shot required an extensive projection set up to have the live action set recreated in maya with accurate proximity to the CG objects being rendered with Vray. This set up worked flawlessly, beautiful rendered were made in a very efficient manner.
Tool: Maya, Vray, Nuke, HDRI Shop, PFTrack
