- The challenge: We had to illustrate the operational area of the german federal armed forces in Afghanistan for a HDTV review.
- To visualize the distance between Germany an Afghanistan we created a three-dimensional animation of the flight. For this we have covered a sphere with a high-resolution texture of the earth and bumped the relief structures in order to give them more depth. To support the impression of the flight we also rendered a cloud layer. The final composing of the 3D-parts was made in After Effects. The 2D-parts of the map and scheme of Afghanistan have been realised in Photoshop. Finally the 2D-parts have been polished in After Effects as well.
