Deconstructing Qo'noS in new Into Darkness behind the scenes video

Autodesk have posted a brilliant interview with Adam Watkins from Pixomondo, who worked on many of the effects sequences in Star Trek Into Darkness. The nearly-forty-minute video takes a close look at their work on the film, including really interesting deconstructions of various sequences, allowing us to see all the different CGI elements along side the real photographed sections and green-screen sets. There's also lots of attention paid to the new Klingon Bird of Prey - Which I admit, after initially not been enthralled by, is a design which is growing on me. Pixmondo worked mainly on the Starfleet HQ attack, Kronos, the gravity turning effects inside the Enterprise, and the warp core sequences, all of which are examined in the video. Have a watch, it's rather interesting:

I've also taken a few screencaps of what I found the most interesting of the behind-the-scenes shots from the video. They continue after the jump:
