Video: Toy Story 3 Character Mosaic Uses 640,000 Images

17 Jun

Leave it to Pixar to create such an amazing video. Imagine the time it took to make this.

  • Each mosaic is made from 40,000 still image “tiles” from Toy Story 1 and 2, including credits.
  • There are 16 mosaics, or 640,000 tiles.
  • These mosaics don’t use “cheats” such as tile tinting or blending with the original image.
  • When we zoom out to see that one mosaic is part of a bigger mosaic, it’s 200 times bigger than the first.  Zoom out again and that mosaic is 4,000 times bigger than the first one. Do that four times and it’s 8 million times bigger than the first.
  • Whenever the camera appears to be moving at a constant speed, it’s actually accelerating.
  • The final animation is over 3,000 fames long.
  • Each frame took between 30 seconds to 16 minutes to render.

Here is the video….

Toy Story 3 will be out in theaters Friday June 18, 2010.
