  • Rising Sun Pictures took on one of the signature scenes in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix centering on the headquarters of The Order of the Phoenix, a building that magically appears between two “Muggle” buildings when summoned. To create the effect, six houses were built in Maya from reference photographs and a LIDAR scan of the set. The main components were hand-animated, while dynamics brought curtains and plants to life. Multiple layers of particle effects, combined with 2D elements, generated dust and debris that were used to augment the shots. The sequence was rendered using a 3Delight renderer, together with custom shaders and a proprietary render-time geometry injector called Venom. The shots were composited in Shake. RSP contributed subtle effects for the tense scene in which Harry becomes possessed by Voldemort. To show Voldemort’s eyes and sockets appearing on Harry’s face, the team used three distinct elements within Shake: an iris/pupil treatment morphing Harry’s wide pupils to match Voldemort’s small pin-hole pupils; an iris color change; the darkening of Harry’s eye sockets, using three different mattes that were tracked into position.
