Linde & AC Transit
Product Launch Video

Highlighting clean energy with 3D animated videos.

Educating the public around clean energy hydrogen technology with a virutal walk-through of all the hydrogen station processes.

We created this fully animated fly through of the station demonstrating all of its elements and processes. The final video was presented at the refueling station to elucidate the clean energy technology.

Project Description


Visually communicate the process of clean energy production to educate the community and media on the advantages and ground breaking techniques used in creating hydrogen fuel.


Take a unique fly-through camera perspective to follow energy production through the clean energy process. Make the viewer feel like they are inside the hydrogen refueling station.


The public and press were able to get a full picture of the new technology while visiting the hydrogen refueling station.


The Work

AC Transit and Linde North America needed a way to show the inner workings of their unique state-of-the-art Hydrogen fueling station to the public. N3 Digital was chosen to create the fully animated fly through of the station demonstrating all of its elements and processes.

We built all the 3D elements from the ground up, modeling, texturing and animating the entire sequence to flow as a seamless piece. The animated video is displayed at the station as an educational tool for the media and public.

This animated demo of the hydrogen station in Emeryville, CA needed to be as accurate as possible. The video is shown to the media and on educational tours to explain how the system works.

Due to the educational purpose we wanted to provide realistic renderings of all the moving parts. We worked with the various suppliers to the system, Linde North America, Mercedes Benz, Van Hool and AC Transit to ensure the renderings were as accurate as possible.

Animating the hydrogen system and the way the materials moved from one system to the next was essential to explaining how the station functions. The animation takes the viewer from the macro to micro level seeing the hydrogen in liquid form and then pushing into the micro level and seeing the hydrogen as individual atoms working in the system.

The Response

"N3 Digital was able to translate two-dimensional engineering drawings of our complicated hydrogen production system, into a superbly executed animation that we use virtually every day to show the public how the system works.Their ability to graphically explain the technically complex with simple, understandable, and beautifully illustrated animated images is uncanny. They were able to give us exactly what we wanted, on time and within an affordable budget. They're impressive!"
