To create two captivating 3D product animations, each lasting 30 seconds and rendered in stunning 4K resolution, featuring Flash Motor’s latest Infinity X scooter and their innovative electric scooter controller technology.

WHY DID THE CLIENT COME TO US?
During a discussion with the company’s CEO, they expressed that their decision to collaborate with us stemmed from the exceptional quality of our past projects. They believed that we were the ideal team to entrust with this endeavor. This confidence was further affirmed by their evident enthusiasm when we showcased the preliminary material preview images to them.
Utilising 3D animation for these projects enabled us to offer Flash Motors marketing assets that matched the detail of conventional photography. At the same time, it allowed us to emphasize specific features of the product in a more imaginative manner. This approach eliminated the expenses associated with renting studios and equipment, offering a cost-effective yet high-quality solution.
Addressing Challenges and Implementing Solutions
Given the tight deadline for CES, we adopted a product line strategy for this project, dividing it into three distinct phases, each handled by different team members. The phases were:
1. Setting up the initial animation and camera.
2. Working on lighting and material.
3. Handling post-production and creating overlays.
We encountered challenges with extended render times and noise in the animations. To address these issues, we explored methods to optimize the materials and scenes. Additionally, we utilised post-production techniques to add details like motion blur, rather than incorporating them directly into the raw animations.
