recently i have been trying my hand at Matchmoving. Which is the combining of 3D with real footage. Turns out its harder than it seems. Especially when the products needed are around £3000. Luckily though i found a free non-commercial software called Icarus. Combining it with Cinema 4D and compositing it in Apple Shake i was able to produce this small demo below.

MTV – Music

May 6, 2008 at 6:17 pm (MTV - Professional Project)

We felt that it was important to establish the music we were going to use from the start as the visuals would end up being a direct result from the song itself. 

Artist – As I Lay Dying

Song – Departed


Album – An Ocean Between Us

Click here to listen – As I Lay Dying – Departed

During the process of learning Cinema 4D i have started to advance in different techniques. Using the MTV logo as a base, during this pro project i have tested out a variety of different rendering methods and 3D shaders. 

Below is an image using HDRI lighting and depth of field.

Wind Physics

It has taken a while but i think i might of managed to work out physics for paper blowing in the wind. This is just part of many things we wish to add to add realism to our projects. See below.

Have spent the a while now trying to model the figure that will be used in our project. Here are images of what we have so far. I am currently working on the kinetics of this model so he can be animated for thfinal piece.

Here is part of the second building i am currently working on. I have not really had that much experience modelling and i am proud of what i am currently achieving.

MTV – Idea

May 6, 2008 at 5:12 pm (MTV - Professional Project)

We have come up with an idea of using an urban environment. The environment will include a figure (the ‘Virus’) and visuals will follow the idea of him (People) infecteing the land and area around him. we have decided to try and generate the whole thing in 3D, incorparating 2D visuals into the compositing process.

Software we will be using include:

Maxon Cinema 4D – – for 3D

Adobe After Effects – – for 2D

Apple Shake – – for Compositing
