3D Scanning for the Movies: The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Guess who 3D scanned Times Square to help create special effects for the new Spider-Man movie?

While we've had the opportunity to work on some pretty awesome films (MIB3, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty), this production afforded the opportunity for one of the largest and most exciting location scans we've yet done. To help create a major action sequence for the film multiple crews from Direct Dimensions digitally documented all of Times Square.

Oh yeah, we also got to 3D scan Peter, Gwen, and Electro. We'll definitely be at the movies this weekend, excited to see our digital data turned into incredible special effects in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
