1999 Lord of the Rings work by Weta

Quite impressive how advanced their rigging systems were back them. Already taking into account muscle deformation, skin sliding and real time interactive AR. Sadly, the technology hasn’t become as mainstream as I wish. Even almost 20 years later, muscle systems and skin-sliding effects are complicated and tedious to create. Which only adds to how impressive this is by Weta.
