In this lesson, you will begin bringing a two-dimensional sketch to life in 3D by placing a few 2D background images and then laying out the surrounding city buildings using primitives.
Often, in pre-vis, a layout artist will be provided with a sketch or storyboard of a Scene. Here, these artists can begin interpreting the appropriate depth and scale of their Scenes through the creation of simple geometry. This first iteration of a Scene sets the foundation for downstream departments (departments that traditionally come after pre-vis, such as sets, characters, lighting, etc.) to work from and expand upon.
