The main challenges encountered were mostly technical - moiré patterns, clean set extensions, colour accuracy between the front and backplate and delays, which needed to be set right to glue the scene together.
Other challenges included accurately blending the performers into the virtual scene and getting the right shots in while recording performances in a single take. "We wanted to retain the live quality of the performances which meant we couldn't fix anything in post.”
In order to meet the need for perfectly calibrated front and backplates, set extensions and workflows for the awards, EVOKE chose a disguise solution. “disguise has the most user-friendly xR workflows that combines the different plates and desired set extensions in one integrated package. No other system does that right out of the box,” says Vincent Steenhoek of EVOKE Studios.
