As the exclusive 3D conversion partner on the movie the stereo team decided at the start of the process to flatten many of the backgrounds while simultaneously adding more volume and sculpting than normal to the characters, allowing the characters to stand-out and be the main focus throughout the entire film. Another important early consideration was how to treat the huge battle scenes between the gargoyles and the demons.
There are a number of big VFX battle sequences in the movie. When the demons are defeated, they crumble into debris and create a firetrail – their spirit – which flies around the scene before entering the ground. The stereo team had fun playing with these twisting trails of fire in depth, and created some really dramatic 3D sequences.
