Corridor Crew on Youtube has come up with this great new series where VFX experts react to CGI in films, and their most recent ep where they take a look at Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. While a lot of people have agreed that the film is chock-full of surprises, CC was able to point out this neat technical detail that went over everyone’s heads.
The bit starts at 7:50:
As it turns out, Miles is rendered in a different frame rate as compared to Peter Parker. Since Miles is still a Spider-Man in training, he’s rendered at a lower frame rate of 12 while Peter is rendered at 24 frames; making Peter’s movements more natural and smooth, while Miles looks kind of off. By the end of the film when Miles becomes Spider-Man, he starts to be rendered at 24 frames, signifying that he’s finally full form.
It’s a neat technical detail, but it’s kind of cool how it also says something about the story.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse had some insane praise when it came out last December, and it’s undoubtedly one of the best Spider-Man ideas to come from Sony that isn’t in collaboration with Marvel. It’s said that multiple spinoffs and a sequel is already in the works, but nothing has been officially announced as of yet. Hopefully we get something at SDCC 2019.
For now, you can catch the live-action Spider-Man: Far from Home in theaters today.
