It's "Die Arzte" Vs. "Lara Croft" in the latest video made by SZM Studios.

To produce the latest video clip for the German band "Die Arzte", SZM Studios and TRIBU combined their know-how to bring the famous computer figure "Lara Croft" to life.

First a detailed grid model had to be worked out. The facial animation system (Maki-talk, which provides the logistics for lip synchronisation and mimicry) had to be devised and calibrated, as did the body model and skeleton for animation of the figure using Motion Capture (Sylliclone). Real and virtual decor and costumes had to be conceived and built to match the 3D figure "Lara Croft".

The first phase of the construction work consisted of making real shootings on location and in the studio. Then the movement data for the figure was generated with motion capturing in real time and transferred to the computer. Subsequently, the special effects were produced, as well as the integration and composting of real and virtual images on "frame" and "inferno". After the sound design in SZM Studios audio production, the video was recorded onto digital betacam.

SZM Studios is one of the most modern service companies for production, post-production and broadcast of television programming. The Munich company operates both conventional and virtual studios and realizes visual effects, graphics and animations. Week after week at SZM studios, nearly 300 employees produce some 2000 minutes of television programming, commercials, video clips and trailers.
