Mobile Augmented Reality and Visual Effects

Mobile Augmented Reality

We started developing Augmented Reality Apps back in 2010. We loved the technology but all the examples and demos available lacked quality, performance and engaging content. We asked ourselves "What's wrong? Why doesn't it look good?" We found the answer and as a result decided to approach mobile augmented reality from a different direction - as specialists in Visual Effects. This is what gives us an edge over our competitors. This is because our 3D models and animations really turn an augmented reality application into something more than just a gimmick.

We specialise in:

  • AR for educational books
  • High quality modelling and animation
  • AR video for magazine advertising
  • AR games
  • Cutting edge business models

For both iOS and Android

We use our 30 years of experience in Visual Effects to create amazing, interactive and soulful mobile augmented reality applications

Visual Effects

Red Frog has worked on 35mm and HD films, dramas and corporate productions, providing some of the most exciting visual effects shots that can be imagined. What sets Red Frog apart is our use of of the most up to date equipment, software and expertise, as well as a commitment to always be at the leading edge in terms of technologies. Delivering Hollywood style effects but at an affordable budget.

We can blow things up, add smoke, liquids, flames or just about anything else you can think of to just about any moving camera shot. We specialise in chroma-keying and also include motion capture facilities.

Our 3D camera tracking solutions are second to none, utilising some of the most advanced systems and expertise to solve just about any camera track.

Backing up the facility is a large render farm, allowing even the most complex of jobs to be managed effectively and efficiently. Whether that be growing a jungle or flooding the streets of Nottingham.
