Incredible Mechanics VR Experience

We helped Roger Dubuis to create a 360° 3D Stereoscopic VR Experience, focusing on their exceptional mechanisms.Below is a 2D version of the video, that gives an idea of the experience.

3D Watch Calibers

We created from scratch all the shaders and materials for 3 calibers, based on photos references.
Each part of the mechanism was treated with care, to respect all the fine craftmanship they apply on the real pieces. 

Rig and Animations

We created custom rig and plugins inside Cinema 4D to animate the mechanism. They react the same way they do in real life.

3D Modeling

For complex objects, ZBrush give us all the power and creative freedom we need to sculpt highly defined 3D models.

3D Simulations

We used X-Particles in Cinema 4D to create complex 3D particles simulations and animations.
