When "Walking with Dinosaurs" was first aired more than ten years ago, it set new standards in computer graphics, robotics and animatronics. The subsequent worldwide sales of this programme and the spin-off series netted the corporation vast sums of money. This new movie project, estimated to cost something in the order of £40 million will combine live action with new computer technology - LIDAR (light, detection and ranging).
The use of LIDAR is particularly appropriate, a case of art imitating life for a number of palaeontologists as a form of LIDAR technology has been used by scientists to detect fossils laying buried underneath sediment, helping field workers to decide where best to dig.
A spokesperson for the project stated that the use of 3D cameras will create: "never before seen levels of invisibility between live action and CGI worlds."
This news will please those clever people behind the "Walking with" live show, perhaps another world tour will be required.
edit: £D instead of 3D? A freudian typo perhaps?
