3D Virtual Worlds for VFX and Gaming

Build virtual worlds of your cities and environments, compile your own private collection, and have real time engines at your fingertips.
I immediately saw the potential for what (Mosaic) is doing with what we are dealing with in the VFX world – mainly the difficulties of capturing large environments and large data sets, easily, quickly and at a reduced cost.

Transform any asset into digital content for VFX & video games.

VFX legacy methods of pairing photographs, geospatial data, and point clouds are time consuming, expensive and labor intensive.

Mosaic’s mobile mapping cameras collect data

  • Faster
  • Easier
  • Cheaper

Our models are

  • 100% photos
  • do NOT use any special effects, digital effects, etc.
  • do NOT require graphics artists either.

The current problems facing VFX & gaming studios

Demand is high

and only increasing. Don’t get left behind in building a virtual world of your assets; digital content in entertainment is up to 80-90% of budgets now.

Competition is fierce

Margins are low. Secure the highest quality assets to compete with the increasing number of VFX studios.

Current methods are costly

When capturing large outdoor spaces, data collection and processing require significant time and budget.

Lack of flexibility

You never quite know what you need at the start of a project, meaning you could you might not collect all of the necessary data.

What you can do with our cameras & data collection services:

Build virtual worlds which are realistic, easy to modify upon request, and ultimately give viewers a more intense experience.

How Media and Entertainment Industries use Mosaic Solutions

Whether in developing a new video game, updating an old one, designing the set for the next animation blockbuster, visual effect artists need to create realistic environments.

Customers and users are demanding ultra high resolution, realistic scenes which make them feel that they are in the game or film. It adds to the intensity of the game, increasing both the thrill of the experience as well as the retention of the user.

Many visual effect artists depend on reference footage collected of the environment for use later in post production to fill in gaps in scenes, extend the physical frames of an image or add extra visual details to the environment.

With Mosaic’s 12K resolution and 22K resolution cameras, directors and artists can rest assured that they have collected the highest resolution images to use later. They can confidently collect the data once and reference it later on.

For accurate recovery of the camera track, it is necessary to recover the frame to frame position of the live action camera. This is a challenging task when working with images from multiple cameras. Some methods involve fusing the information from multiple cameras into a joint 3D motion calculation.

With one 360-degree camera that possesses overlapping sensors around the body of the camera, it is possible to achieve this in a meaningful way and lead to more robust object tracking and recognition.
