In the ever-evolving world of filmmaking and visual effects, technology continually pushes the boundaries of what’s possible. One exciting development that has caught the attention of the industry is Vijay’s 3D scan for ‘Thalapathy 68’ currently underway in Los Angeles, California.

 

 

The Journey to LA

The team behind ‘Thalapathy 68,’ including the renowned actor Vijay, director Venkat Prabhu, and producer Archana Kalpathi, embarked on a crucial mission to Los Angeles. Their objective? To capture a highly detailed 3D scan of Vijay’s face, a process that will likely play a pivotal role in the film’s visual effects.

 

 

The Significance of 3D Scanning for Thalapathy 68 VFX

In ‘Thalapathy 68,’ this technology promises to elevate the cinematic experience to new heights.

This technology was used for Shah Rukh Khan for Fan movie. In the 2016 Indian psychological thriller, a major challenge was transforming Shah Rukh Khan into two distinct characters: the young boy Gaurav and his idol Aryan Khanna. This required intricate VFX work, involving 1325 shots for facial transformation and a 2.5-inch height reduction. To maintain consistency, 1800 VFX shots were created, and contact sheets were used to ensure continuity in appearance. This project was a landmark in Indian cinema, achieving such complex transformations on a large scale in a record 11 months.

 

 

Shankar, a leading figure in VFX and animation excellence, has harnessed this 3D scanning technology for the films Robot, 2.0, and the forthcoming Indian 2.

 

 

 

This technology was also used in Gemini Man VFX.
