The result was this rather striking short film that really captures the dynamic nature of this superb hatchback.
The light bars were generated and animated in softimage ICE. These were then cached out to Alembic to allow us to speed up and slow down to our hearts content. The scene lighting was almost exclusivly mesh lights applied to the animated light bars and rendered in Arnold. As ever, our trusty KettleUber shader was used exclusively for the surfaces, with some custom jiggery pokery for the car paint surfaces.
