Mechanical rigging and dynamic elements

For a clip depicting a semi truck driving down the interstate at top speed, the model was rigged with a basic suspension system. The axles can bounce independently as the truck encounters bumps and dips in the road. Traffic heading in the opposite direction on the other side of the highway, as well as scenery, have been textured with a simple white texture to emphasize the cold weather and keep the focus solely on the foreground truck, while still suggesting the overall context of the scene. Dynamic snow and sleet elements are added, and the virtual lens of the camera begins to be vignetted with ice crystal patterns.
