My guess is that they used imagery taken from something like Google Maps and tied this little program in to work with it, if that's even possible.

I get how that would work for the shot where Shockwave is descending through the atmosphere, but would that work for the on the ground shots as well? I don't think I've ever actually used Google Earth, but those shots look like they were taken by someone on or close to the ground.

You can get Street Views in Google Maps. I use those all the time.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.
