One of the best special effects in Man of Steel was the “liquid-geo”. It was a unique presentation of information, and it was another way that Zack Snyder gave Krypton its memorable look and feel. Weta Digital handled the effect, and explained how it came to be through a combination of “animation and simulation”, and that Snyder wanted the technology to have a tactile feel as opposed to the transparent touch screens that have become the norm for futuristic user interfaces. The new featurette also explains how Weta came to the excellent “bas-relief, Greco-Roman” design.
