For this year’s ADIB Cup Final, INFRAMES were given the unique request to fill the floor of the opening ceremony with the most attractive content possible. After the creative team quickly found that it wasn’t technically possible to project on the floor of the field, they decided to opt for full-sphere projection to allow the audience to see the show up close.
Working alongside No1 Events Creative Director Hassan Abdulhamid, the INFRAMES team, led by Creative Content Producer Haitham Taha, made 360-degree screen content consisting of abstract and dynamic visuals communicating our planet’s place within our galaxy’s wonders and the importance of sustainability.
The team began by simulating all the animation over virtual spheres. They used the same simulation source animation to render video straight out of Notch in NotchLC, which was then fed to the disguise media server. As Taha recalls, despite rendering video at an impressive 8K resolution, it only took four minutes to export out of Notch. The final result exceeded the client’s expectations and primed the audience for a tight match in which Sharjah defeated Al Ain 2-1.
