chrusion | FX ("cruise eon effects") is owned and operated by Dean A. Scott and specializes in 3D animation and illustration of industrial equipment and machines and 3D visual effects. We also excel in graphic design, audio processing and editing, and 360 degree spherical panoramic photography and virtual tours, all the while being affordable and high quality, fitting your needs exactly.
We invite you to browse our site and see if our design style and asthetics are a good fit for your next animation or graphic design project. If you like what you see, please give us a call or write us an email. We're eager to provide you with the utmost attention to detail.
On December 13, 2012 we completed our latest project, the Astec, Inc. Universal Concrete Plant. Both the modeling and animation phases took 2 months each and with the help of a 200+ cpu rendering farm, rendering the 8,180 frames took 2 weeks. This was quite an involved project and the first to use upwards of 4 million particles in the simulation of concrete being mixed by two counter-rotating sets of paddles and six high-pressure water jets during the clean-out stage. "Baking" these particle simulations and the global illumination needed for realistic lighting and shading resulted in 1.4 gigabytes of data.
We have just launched our new Panorama Division that developes full spherical, interactive virtual tours, perfect for real estate agents selling higher-end homes, and super ultra-high resolution images, called gigapans, perfect for large-scale advertising, marketing, murals, and other needs where extreme detail is required or desired.
Our virtual tours are cross-platform, cross-device, cross-browser capable and run in both Flash, for desktop PCs, and pure HTML5, for mobile devices. Such a package consists of a minimum of four, full-spherical (360 x 180) floor to ceiling panoramas, one connected to another to form a path thru any sort of structure or environment a person can travel in-person, but virtually and remotely via a web browser.
Our Gigapans are single, extremely-high resolution images that cover an angle of view from 10 to 180 degrees and range from 30,000 to 90,000 pixels wide. For instance, if the 1 gigapixel image featured below was printed as a mural on a building wall at 100 dpi, it would be 62 feet long and 11 feet high! To put it another way, this same image would be 40 HD televisions wide by 12 televisions high, or a total of 485 flat-screen TVs worth of crystal clear imagery!
So, to celebrate the launch, we're non-exclusively licensing our 1 gigapixel "Chattanooga, TN from Lookout Mountain" image to any serious media buyer using Paypal and digital delivery. Or you can select to customize your order to show only certain portions by entering those special instructions during Paypal checkout. For a different point of view such as from Racoon or Elder Mountains or Missionary Ridge, please call so we can discuss your needs in detail (weather is a major factor). We also have exclusive licensing terms available, which take the image off the market. Any questions? Email or call!
Experience the detail by clicking on the image below to active our Flash Viewer (click-drag cursor to pan and roll scroll wheel to zoom). Some browsers allow you to right-click and select 'View Image' in order to see the sample below at full 3,000 x 537 resolution.
