BreakDowns | The Making of UFC Evolution | Digital Domain

The above image is of  Digital Domain.

Here's a breakdown of the elements Digital Domain  used to create the new UFC show opener, "Evolution".James Atkinson  served as VFX Supervisor, with Neil Huxley directing and Karl Denham as CG supervisor (full list below). The process began with rotoscoping archival footage to create mattes for the fighters (some of which standard def and quite old). They then previzualized CG action to fit the fight moments and build a narrative of destruction and creation. Compositing the fighters to fit in this new environment was a painstaking process involving hundreds of FX and CG elements.
