Integration of digital twin and photogrammetry as a preparatory phase for 3D visual production

For the creation of the animated video of the Nice Grand Prix circuit, the Studio followed a rigorous technical approach to accurately capture Nice’s urban environment. The process began by importing the city’s photogrammetric model, a detailed digital replica that faithfully reproduces Nice’s geography and architecture.

This combination enabled the development of an extremely realistic and detailed urban environment, essential for faithfully reproducing the Grand Prix circuit in the animation. This meticulous approach ensures that every detail, from street contours to building textures, contributes to an immersive and authentic visual experience.

Background :

The idea of a Formula 1 Grand Prix in Nice is at the heart of automotive news in the spring of 2024. Indeed, Christian Estrosi, Mayor of Nice and President of the Nice Côte d’Azur Metropolis, spoke to L’Equipe about the possibility of a return to the French F1 GP, supporting the idea of staging the event on the streets of the Côte d’Azur capital.

Immerse yourself in the heart of the action with our exclusive video produced by L4M Studio, using Lumion software, which takes you along the tracks of the next Formula 1 circuit, imagined right in the center of the magnificent city of Nice. From dazzling acceleration on the Promenade des Anglais to the chicanes of the coulée verte, or the tight bends in the port district … enjoy a unique experience as you discover this breathtaking route.

.: this animated video is fictitious. It was conceived by the Studio’s 3D visual production team, who explored the idea as creative entertainment and wanted to showcase their expertise by creating an imaginary Formula 1 circuit through the streets of Nice.

Located just a stone’s throw from Nice, Studio L4M took great pleasure in imagining this circuit and showcasing this project in the making.

We hope you’ve enjoyed this playful exploration as much as we’ve enjoyed creating it for you. Thank you for following us on this spectacular visual adventure!
