THE WALK: 1970s NEW YORK

Atomic Fiction

Realism was key to making The Walk’s dramatic tightrope scenes believable, from the Twin Towers to the New York City skyline. Atomic Fiction’s detailed recreation of the World Trade Center relied heavily on V-Ray for KATANA’s GGX shaders to bring back the iconic buildings.

V-Ray and KATANA are cornerstones of Atomic Fiction's workflow. Chaos Group has an obvious passion for making amazing, production-focused tools and are constantly looking towards the future.
