Learning from this major setback, the makers took all the necessary precautions to prevent the leakage menace for the film’s sequel, Baahubali The Conclusion. But still, safeguarding the footage when the movie’s post-production work was in progress at 36 VFX studios across the world with over 1,000 technicians working round the clock is a daunting task.
The sequel’s VFX supervisor Kamal Kannan revealed how Baahubali’s footage was safeguarded. Kamal revealed that the main server for all the databases storing Baahubali’s footage and rendered clips was located in Germany and that all the technicians had to use a login ID and password to access the these clips directly from the server.
This process let’s the makers know which technician was accessing which video clip, thereby ensuring more safety for the footage. No doubt in saying that this technology may soon be implemented for all the big budget movies across the country.
