Eye candy: Miarmy’s cool VFX crowds reel
We’ve been covering Miarmy, Basefount Technology’s Maya crowd-simulation system, since it was first released in 2011. Up until now, most of the videos we posted were tech demos.
But now Basefount has posted its movie reel – and it’s really rather impressive.
Huge crowd shots from studios worldwide
There are a few projects that will be familiar to Western audiences, such as Iloura’s work on I, Frankestein, but most of the footage comes from Asian studios.
Altogether, it’s a fun way to spend a coffee break. Basefount keeps adding new functionality to the software, too: you can find the feature list for Miarmy 3.2 here, including details of the new crowd-painting tools.
