So I figured(especially considering I have a brief that recommends me to do so in like two days) I would post some images of previous renders whilst I first started learning how to use Cinema 4D as well as odd renders for briefs etc. So my first render ever was a scene of a grass … More The BIG CURVE
What’s Up! Here is a short kinetic typography sample I did for a song called “Closer” by Kings of Leon that I did a while back and have only uploaded it now. It’s been a while since I’ve worked with After Effects so it was very refreshing to try something new again. Check it out: … More Kinetic Typography
Today I learnt something. I have been wondering and speculating what the term “ambient occlusion” means for ages and I finally found out, so I figured I’d share. Ambient Occlusion is a method that calculates how light should be shining(and reflecting) off of a surface whilst taking into account the environment around it. Essentially it … More Ambient Occlusion
I attempted to create a character rig in a different way, using a predefined “character” tool in C4D. Unfortunately I had a lot of distorting when actually attempting to animate it but I think its good progress. A little weight editing would more than likely fix the problem so I’ll have a gander at it … More Character Rigging
Last night I watched an inspiring movie in terms of animation. The movie is called The Secret of Kells and is an incredible combination of layering and 2D animation to create an unusually created movie. Check out the trailer o get an idea of what I’m talking about. Trailer Here I wouldn’t mind trying my … More The Secret of Kells
Here is a render that took way too long but was interesting in dwelling into further detail like global illumination and ambient occlusion. Displacement was the key new factor in this creation, namely, sub-surface displacement. Thanks for the read!
Heres another render playing around with volumetric light and different material sets!
For a craft lesson we each got given a principle of animation and I decided to try out my basic knowledge of 3D animation and make use of Cinema 4D to showcase the idea. The animation took about 3 hours to make(although it took so long to render) and I tried to experiment for the … More Staging-The Principles of Animations
Applying the principles of animation allows one to create an attractive and exciting animation that can tell a story in an entertaining way. Here is a video highlighting the 12 principles by Cento Lodigiani(2014) in a very detailed manor. 12 Principles of Animation Image Here
We received a rather interesting brief where we had to create a story, storyboard it, script it, make a photo montage and add our own recorded sounds to it. Naturally with my love for animation I decided to tackle the most difficult thing I could, stop frame animation. With basically no knowledge of stop frame … More The Escape-Stop Frame
