When tasked with creating realistic tigers for their latest project, 4th Creative Party chose Yeti to achieve the desired result. We were blown away with their work and recently spoke with the team about how and why they used our product.
“The Tiger: An Old Hunter’s Tale”, is a film about the last tiger and a hunter of the Joseon Dynasty period in Korea. The main character of the film features the “King of Joseon’s Tigers”, his family of five, and a pack of wolves.
“We started to study and research fur which is essential to convey characters such as tigers and wolves realistically. To achieve this we needed to divide the texture of fur, movement of muscle and the surface area of characters into several parts. Yeti was just right for this work method and way of expression. Yeti is easy to work with, so even someone who uses it for the first time can learn it easily and quickly. Also, the node-based workflow enabled us to control many parts and groom more details with only basic and simple node.”
“What we especially liked about Yeti was that it’s really easy to move fur between each model. We made many kinds of tigers (with varied ages and appearances) based on a single tiger model by modifying its shape. Yeti helped us save tons of time because it’s easy to convert fur between different-shaped models with the same topology.”
“Lastly, we are very satisfied with your Technical Support Team’s quick and kind feedback on Yeti Central. We will continue using Yeti for future projects.”
Thank you for your kind words and for choosing Yeti, 4th Creative Party! We can’t wait to see what comes out of your studio next!
