As part of the Cloudmaster DC-6 project we needed to include a specific engine. This is the Pratt & Whitney R-2800 Double-wasp-twin row, 18-cylinder, air-cooled radial aircraft engine.
The engine is one of the best radial piston engines ever designed. Furthermore, the engine is notable for its widespread use in many important American aircraft, both during, and after World War II. For that reason, we decided to use the engine for an in-house project. The engine model was re-textured and we created a 3d environment. The shots were lit and we rendered several still images. A short animation of the engine is also in our showreel.
Most noteworthy is the fact that some of the images have been produced to look like they were from the engines heyday.
