I spent a couple of hours playing around in C4D and ended up with this little piece. I’ve poked around in C4D in the past, however I’m starting to look at Cinema in a different way. Things are clicking and starting to make sense and the parallels between Cinema and Maya are falling into place. This is actually the first piece that I’ve used Cinema 100%. It definitely won’t be the last.
Here’s a quick little test I did playing around with some mocap data. I snagged some free mocap data from, you guessed it, www.mocapdata.com. Nothing too crazy going on here, just some cluster deformers parented to mocap locators.
Last year I was contacted by Computer Arts magazine and they asked if they could feature my reel on the ‘Output’ section of their monthly disc. There was no way I was going to let this opportunity pass up. I had to swap out the music for legal reasons but my boy Thomas was able to lend a beat for the cause. This issue came out in July 2010 and they found my reel on xplsv.tv (RIP).
For the past week or so I’ve been working on some animated backgrounds for an event. These were intended to be abstract and simply support the performers onstage. The screen that all of this played back on was around 20ftx60ft and our delivery resolution was 3340×1080.
