Behind the Scenes in Vice City's "The Lab" - Part 1: Animation


Recommended Posts

Here's a cool feature from Rockstar, some behind the scenes content for the original Vice City! Check out the interactive feature embedded below. And continue reading for more details.

Nearly ten years ago, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City was honored by London’s Design Museum as an annual design award nominee recognizing the ‘biggest contribution to design in 2002’ alongside such other newfangled technology as Apple’s iPod. Part of the award festivities included a special installation at the museum for which we produced an exclusive set of interactive kiosks to give visitors a glimpse of how Vice City was created – specifically focused on the game’s Animation,Sound, and City Design architecture.

Rockstar will be posting all of the original files from the digital display, which haven't been seen since the original museum exhibition, starting with today’s Animation chapter seen above. Enjoy rare footage and sketches including:
  • “Motion Capture”- a rare video showing a cutscene between Kent Paul and Tommy Vercetti going from motion-capture through to 3D model wireframe to finished product.
  • “Sketch Book” - a progression of original character sketches through to final models and now-iconic illustrations of such folks as Lance Vance, Avery Carrington, Ken Rosenberg and more.
  • “Tommy Moves”- a set of clips showing the genesis of Tommy’s animations whether jumping into a Comet sports car, dive kicking a biker off his chopper or running with a chainsaw...

Rockstar have thankfully devoted some of their newswire to something OTHER THEN MULTIPLAYER activity!!!! READ ALL ABOUT IT! hahaha

Sorry, Chris, but I think even if you enjoy Multiplayer gaming, it's a bit over-board coming as news from Rockstar, we single player gamers who commit much time to OFF LINE gaming, we've never been over-joyed by the industry going ape-stuff on such matters, This anniversary seemed to summon up more then what we got for the 10th Anniversary of GTA III, however, no matter what you think about either, Rockstar came into their own with these two GTAs in the space of a year, pretty damn impressive
