Japanese R firm Wowlab produced the clip using its own in-house omnidirectional motion graphics platform.

There’s not a lot of info about the software beyond what’s on its web page but here’s a really solid explainer graphic:

All that matters is that it looks amazing and has a great feeling of momentum while the camera squeezes through the tiniest holes or breaks through to the infinite reaches of space.
