Welcome to The Computer Graphics Society Cinema 4D And After Effects Training, Tutorials, and Plugins for Motion Graphic Designers Congratulations to Michael Rinnan for winning the Five Second Project for March. His entry had a great concept and was outfitted with excellent lighting, atmosphere, camera movements and sound design. We wanted to know a little bit more about Michael’s entry, so we asked him a few questions regarding his workflow and the process for creating his winning piece. Where do you work? What is your title? Tell us about what you do at your company. I am a 3D generalist at NFL films in Mt. How did you come up with your concept for the Bright Lights Five Second Project? For my concept, my goal was to come up with a quick story I could tell in 5 seconds. What was the most challenging thing about your project? The most challenging part of this project was honestly the lighting. Tell us a little about how you achieved the zolly (push-pull zoom) effect. To achieve the zolly, I initially mapped out the motion of the motorcycles with a spline and then dropped a camera onto that motion path.
heavy industries » Blog Archive » ICE point distributions on surfaces Here are some ICE attempts at making even point distributions on arbitrary meshes. It’s hard to beat the look of evenly packed points. I used this problem as my first experiment in xsi ICE. I’ve been playing with this idea for years and years, and I’ve managed to make my programs do smarter and smarter things to produce these kinds of distributions. I generated points randomly over the entire surface and used a Get Neighboring (sic) Particles node to decide whether or not to reject the point. Within hours I had reproduced the results of an xsi plugin that i had spent weeks writing. :( and :) The main problem with dart throwing is that the system is not aware of a complete state. dart throwing in ICE from benp on Vimeo. As you can see the rate of successful candidates drops off to a painfully low level very quickly .. Further tests I could try using an electro-static relaxation type idea to generate n points and iteratively relax them into a stable state. more ICE dart throwing tests downloads
