This was a freelance project where 3DExcite contracted me to create a full length 360 pano animation to showcase the role of SMDI and steel in the future of mobility. This was a stylized animation where the user would be taken in first person VR driving in a fully autonomous vehicle. The VR application was featured at the SMDI booth during the 2019 Detroit Auto Show (NAIAS).
The animation was created in Maya and rendered using V-Ray. Materials were created using V-Ray and Substance Painter. Compositing and audio was done in After Effects and Premiere. The pano animation was then placed in Unity with visual effects and hotspots to guide the user through the experience.
