3D presents marine engineering job

We made a 3D animation to reveal how a giant crane vessel lifts a larger-than-life buoy from the sea.


After having dismantled a massive floating buoy, Scaldis Salvage & Marine Contractors was not entirely satisfied with the video report that they had made of it. They asked us for a 3D animation that would show the underwater action to convey the magnitude of the job.

The scale of the job

We recreated Scaldis’ crane vessel and the buoy in 3D and located the virtual camera at sea level, to show the action both above and below the waterline. This way the animation gives a clear overview of the procedure, presenting the magnitude of the challenging operation. The animation was subsequently integrated into the original video.
