Shortly after wrapping up work on Spider-verse, I was lucky enough to jump onto the Lego Movie 2 MOE sequence. Both sequences were happening at the same time over at Alma Mater. This sequence was the complete opposite of the visual style that we developed for Spider-verse.
For Lego, we were compositing photo real renders from Maya/Vray in Nuke. We were using raw passes, reflections, refractions, etc and carefully dialing in each one.
