Been working on test renders for the supermarket interior (unaugmented) – augmented views to come soon. Still waiting to hear back from Costco about filming on location, but I am thinking that I can do most of this scene with green screen and rendered environments.
For a transition between unaugmented view and augmented view, I think the Westworld metacamera technique that Charles showed could be useful; we get the unaugmented view down an aisle first (like the one above), pan to a character’s face behind the camera, and then reveal their personalised view as we pan back to the aisle.
From above, we see the ‘group shopping’/flocking behaviour. Could use rendered people for this view so long as it is rendered as a time lapse – fast moving motion blurred people can hide the fact that they are rendered.
*Some earlier tests below.
