RTG Felixtowe

Rubber Tyre Gantry crane

We have had lots of experience animating various types of port equipment, and the RTG is one of the 'mighty beasts' we have to some degree 'tamed' in animation. The challenge here was to produce a short instruction movie-clip to introduce internal and external truck drivers and other port employees to new procedures in the block area of Felixstowe Port. It is in the so-called block areas of most container ports that you will find the RMGs. So watch out: Some of them don't have human drivers :)

RIP Mental Ray rendering

RTG Felixstowe was one of the last large projects we completed using the Mental Ray renderer, before switching permanently over to VRay. Mental Ray quality was good, and that is why we resisted changing for ages. VRay or Corona render engines are both tried and tested by our industry.

We chose VRay for the next stage of our digital journey!
