The Magic Egg
THE MAGIC EGG is a wide-ranging collection of visual segments developed by computer animation teams at various research institutes and universities across North America. These teams combined vector graphics, molecular modeling techniques and simulated time-lapse photography with the mathematical calculations needed to pre-distort images for IMAX Dome projection. The screen explodes with colour shifting patterns and model-like movement. Segments include a flight through a wire frame city, a roller coaster ride over an abstract Japanese mountain terrain and a trip through an intricate floral labyrinth. These segments, combined with the scale and three dimensionality of IMAX Dome provide the viewer with at truly unique experience marking an important first in IMAX Dome technology.
