We have additional coverage on the VFX in The Amazing Spider-Man on fxguide with Mike Seymour’s article Spider-Man: the detailed vfx of spiders and lizards. In the article Mike takes a look at Sony Pictures Imageworks’ visual effects for The Amazing Spider-Man, including their approach to the sub-surface scattering of lizard skin, spidey’s animation, the digital New York and working with the RED EPIC stereo footage. Plus we look at Pixomondo’s work for the film.
