In a global exclusive, ixtract developed the currently most up-to-date model of the Titanic wreck for National Geographic and RMS Titanic, Inc.. National Geographic approached us with a set of orthogonal high resolution mosaics, each of them put together from thousands of individual shots, which were produced by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), displaying the current state of the Titanic wreckage from orthogonal views. These photos where taken from the last expedition to the Titanic wreck in 2010. The assignment was to create the most accurate 3D model of the bow section. The Titanic is hidden 3800 meters under the see, in total muddy eclipse, so this was the first time to see the whole current wreckage in a 360 degree view. Alltogether we spent about 400 hours within 4 weeks to create an animated model.
