Aston Martin DB12 in Unreal Engine 5

The task at hand was straightforward but ambitious: digitally recreate Aston Martin's newest gems, the DB12 and DB12 Volante. Using Unreal Engine and a full CG workflow, our challenge was to depict the cars' features and charm, all while highlighting the advantages of CG over traditional film methods.

Starting with a mood-board helped us sketch out the right environment and setting for the cars. This step was all about visualizing the best backdrops to complement the cars. The beauty of a CG workflow? We had room to try out different visuals, refine them, and nail the perfect look without the hassles of on-location shoots.
With Unreal Engine 5 as our tool, we set out to shape a convincing 3D environment that would do justice to the cars.
