Shandong province's first XR virtual shooting laboratory and production team recently settled in the Oriental Movie Metropolis studio in Qingdao West Coast New Area (Qingdao WCNA).

XR stands for "extended reality", an umbrella term that covers augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and mixed reality (MR).

The XR virtual shooting technology uses a dedicated camera for position tracking combined with a background screen for real-time rendering to integrate the real shooting scene with the virtual scene in order to achieve a full range of virtual reality on the screen.

The XR virtual shooting studio provides new technology that is completely different from traditional methods of filming by building a cutting-edge laboratory that includes equipment for motion capture shooting and XR shooting. Through the combination of real worlds and virtual worlds, XR technology can present both worlds on the screen using a small stage.

The Oriental Movie Metropolis is one of the largest film studio complexes in the world, and new technologies such as motion capture and virtual shooting are being utilized at the studio. In recent years, science fiction blockbusters featuring various visual effects shot at the studio include "The Wandering Earth" and "Moon Man".
