We already knew that the Tupac Hologram wasn't really a hologram but actually just a modern regurgitation of the old mid-19th century trick known as "Pepper's Ghost". If you were confused on how that illusion worked, be confused no more! Here it is.

Roxanne Palmer at the International Business TImes made this infographic that clearly illustrated how the whole hologram shenanigans worked. AV Concepts, the company behind the fauxlogram, used Musion Systems Ltd.'s Musion Eyeliner setup to project a 2D animated Tupac onto an invisible (to the audience) screen to make him look 3D.

yea, i wonder if the japs use this same technique for their "hologram" shows''..

so I take it that animating pac in HD probably cost the most out of the 100-400k estimate?

It was a good a.ss CG but 100 stacks? Perhaps wit the cost for the whole stage set up and rehersal training package but if it was just for the CG work alone they taxed that n*gga dre

why would they keep selling Pac tho? Who owns his likeness/catalog/image rights, and why are they so money hungry? let this dude rest (if he really is dead tho). Too much post-mortem Pac material has come out for me to think he is REALLY dead
