Breaking Dawn Filming News: CGI & Renesmee!

MackenzieFoy.com has gained exclusive information as to how the CGI will rapidly age Renesmee for Breaking Dawn Part 2 -

We now have more info about the CGI techniques that are going to be used in Breaking Dawn to rapidly age Mackenzie’s character Renesmee. The CGI team is going to use a mixture of ‘Motion Capture’ and ‘Live Action’ Photography by fitting Mackenzie with an individually made skull cap fitted with a tiny camera positioned in front of her face. Like Avatar, the information collected about her facial expressions and eyes is then transmitted to computers.

As reported back in October Mackenzie’s face will then be digitally transferred onto the face and body of a younger child to create the illusion of her character’s rapid ageing. Besides the performance capture data which will be transferred directly to the computers, numerous reference cameras will give the digital artists multiple angles of each performance. All live action and motion capture footage will then be composited on screen :biggrin:

Side note: I don’t know about you — but I LOVE that fan pic of Aro and Renesmee!!

    So excited to see how they do this!! BTW, love that manip of Nessie with Aro, I got goosebumps!!

  • TwiObessed

    Well, we really only get to see her in part two of BD :( but I do wonder who they will use and if they will show the “baby boy” in Bella’s dreams and who thinks is her nudger (EJ)!!! Any thoughts if that will be a toddler actor or cgi???

  • Unique Jenique

    The moment I heard the guy from Avatar was going to be involved in this put me at ease. I know it is going to be great! And yes, that picture of Aro and Renesmee is beautiful!
