This is a short intro animation we created for a client. They provided us a couple still images of their office building and wanted a motion graphics styled animation starting with their company sign being drawn out on old style drafting paper and as the camera pulls back from the sign the building is drawn out as well while transitioning to the full original photo of the building.
The budget wasn't there to create an entire photo real scene with their building so I opted for a camera mapping technique coupled with a very low poly model created in Autodesk Image Modeler using the 3 or 4 images they had given us. We did render to a few passes to comp in AE but most everything you see was done directly in 3DS Max including the drawing effect. The more I have played with camera mapping the more I realize just how much potential this one little technique holds!
