    LOTR Official Site Update - Inside the Effects - WOW!!!

    Read this from

    Official Site: Inside the Effects!
    Demosthenes @ 4:35 pm EST has just updated their site with some amazing "inside the effects" material. I cannot emphasise enough that you really should check this out right away! Do not walk, run! [To the official site]

    If you're not convinced, this is what New Line has to say:

    Inside the Effects!

    For the First of Two Parts of this extensively interactive feature on the official site, we break apart all the technology and production that went into the making of the Prologue scene in The Fellowship of the Ring.

    Explore how the Prologue scene was created from the use of WETA's 'Massive' software to create the armies, to motion capture for the fight styles on the Elves, with matte painting and digital models for the environment. Watch almost an hour of exclusive video interviews with the staff at WETA Digital and download a custom Elf screensaver and Prologue scene desktop.

    All new Interactive elements include:

    (1) Skin an Elf!
    (2) Build your own Orc
    (3) Simulate the Prologue Scene

    Enjoy this latest offering from the official site- and stay tuned for the second part of the feature - which goes 'Inside the Effects' on the epic Battle of Helm's Deep, which will launch next month.
    There is so much interesting stuff here, I'm checking it right now...this is some combination of FLASH animations and video files, I guess Quick Time but I can't find the direct links to them...

    Slightly OT:

    From LotR:FotR trivia:

    For high-tech tasks, a computer program called MASSIVE made armies of CG orcs, elves, and humans. These digital creations could 'think' and battle independently - identifying friend or foe - thanks to individual fields of vision. Jackson's team could click on one creature in a crowd scene of 20,000 and see through his "eyes". Different species even boast unique fighting styles. It is reported that on the first run of the fight sequences using the MASSIVE Artificial Intelligence program, the intelligent fighters - programmed to fight in the most efficient manner possible all turned and ran away.
    Any1 got a confirmation on that one? Or some qt files perhaps? It's not included in the 4disc FotR DVD extras ...
