George Lucas was a pioneer in creating realistic universes and renewing special effects techniques. It is not just about visual spectacle, but about creating a universe in which the story is the key but accompanied by striking images.
For the first film in the 1970s (now Star Wars Episode IV), there was no visual technology to ensure the desired level of realism. In addition to wire-driven dolls, the solution was to assemble model aircraft to unique designs, while special effects were achieved with matte paint, camera trickery and an overall focus on empty space to make it deep and haunting.
In “The Empire Strikes Back”(V), a moving camera was innovated to achieve images per minute as there are many sequences in space, combining large-scale models with the visual experience in camera.
The film “Rogue One” stands out for its state-of-the-art digital technology special effects and one of the most well-known was how old shots were interspersed with those of this new episode, creating the effect that the plot occurred in a different time than the previous stories, but reminding, at the same time, that the film was heir to the previous saga.
Finally, The Mandalorian series stands out for its visual spectacle, with large landscapes that look real thanks to the new LED technology, 50% of the series was filmed using background images that were projected on giant screens with a 270º curvature, which allowed to surround the actors or the scene.
To achieve maximum detail, the images were projected through 7 computers and, for the integration of all possible shots, the powerful graphics engine Unreal Engine 4 was used.
Nubeprint, with 5 registered patents, has also evolved over the last decade, always at the forefront of technological advances. In 2010 it pioneered the first MPS solution in the cloud, including algorithms and dynamic filters a year later; since 2014 it has been using its A.I. engine for the optimization of MPS management, implemented every year; in 2017 it developed its specific Machine Learning for MPS and, since 2018, the first and only DCA integrated in a smartphone application, which allows monitoring the printer through the mobile app and creates the alert when the load of any cartridge is low, guaranteeing its replacement before it runs out.
