This animation was produced by myself (David Lee) & Andrew Lee in 2006 from the modelling work done by the G3 Alcan project office. We translated the models from AutoCAD, Bentley AutoPlant, and ProSteel. The animation was produced in small scenes and comp'd in Adobe After Effects then final'd in Premiere Pro. All work was rendered in Autodesk's Maya on 32bit machines using the command line renderer (memory restrictions!). Final output was to DVD, amazing how small that rez seems now compared to HD. It took about 6 weeks (not including R&D). I think we could do better in this world of 64bit machines with massive ram!
