I know we’ve all seen pop-up book transitions all over TV for the last six months or so, but this little making-of video from Reel FX shows off a lot of the CG behind their approach to making pop-up transitions for Disney’s new movie, Enchanted. The end product is silky smooth.
The books they used as reference, by the way, were made by pop-up book master Robert Sabuda. If you’ve never seen his stuff in person, do yourself a favor and spend some quality time with his work in the children’s section at your local bookstore. Amazing stuff.
