NAB 2015 Rewinds

X-Particles, Thinking Particles, and C4D Dynamics – Livestream Archive #4

In this series of presentations from NAB 2015: artists Casey Hupke, Athanassios Pozantzis, and Chris Schmidt share how they use Cinema 4D to create dynamic simulations and particle effects for film and motion graphics.

In Creating Complex Animations with X-Particles, Casey Hupke demonstrates how to create a flexible, reusable X-Particles preset to control particle flow along a spline.

Athanassios Pozantzis provides a tutorial on how to use Cinema 4D's MoGraph and Thinking Particles features to create a visual effects shot of an asteroid destroying a skyscraper. He follows this up with a second presentation on simulating a planetary explosion.

Chris Schmidt of GreyscaleGorilla demonstrates powerful techniques to artistically control soft body simulations using C4D's particle forces, such as Wind and Attractor. He shows how he utilized these techniques to create dynamic text animations for the title sequence of Dumb and Dumber To.


Cinema 4D Scientific and Medical Animation – Livestream Archive #3

In these NAB 2015 presentations, three scientific and medical animation artists give us a peek into how they build stunning recreations of worlds invisible to the naked eye.

Joel Dubin provides a step-by-step tutorial demonstrating how to visualize a B-Lymphocyte using Cinema 4D and X-Particles.

Heidi Sinsel and Elizabeth McDonald from Nucleus Medical Inc. demonstrate how they use animation software Cinema 4D to visualize cellular processes.


Cinema 4D Scripting – Livestream Archive #2

In this double-shot of Cinema 4D scripting presentations Colin Sebestyen and Mike Senften show how they use the Cinema 4D Python SDK to create beautiful generative art.

In his talk, Sebestyen uses an L System inspired by Daniel Shiffman’s The Nature of Code in order to create complex branching structures. He also discusses how he creates intricate MoGraph animations using the Python Effector.

Mike Senften shares his mChains system which allows for the dynamic folding and unfolding of organic shapes. He closes by showing how he used Python and a CSV file to create a data visualization of global airport locations.  


Projection Mapping – Livestream Archive #1

In this series of presentations from NAB 2015 in Las Vegas – you’ll see project breakdowns of 3D projection mapping techniques from industry pros: Michael Rosen, Alan Demafiles, Steven Messing, & Craig Whitaker.

Presentations
While you won’t see a step-by-step projection mapping tutorial, these artists will share key tips on how to do projection mapping in a variety of scenarios:

Michael Rosen shows how he used Camera Mapping and MoGraph to transform simple photographs into a dramatic 25 second open for Project Breakdown of Titles for Microsoft's Modern Workplace.

For Alan Demafiles, Cinema 4D is the 3D projection mapping software of choice. In Animating Projections on Massive Structures with C4D. Demafiles shares a building projection, where a dragon breaks through a wall lighting it on fire using particle effects.

In Steven Messing’s Hollywood Filmic Design Techniques with C4D and Octane, he uses Camera Mapping to extend a set from HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. Shots from Exodus, Berkey City, Star Trek, & Life of Pi all show C4D camera mapping techniques put to good use.

What can you do with a photo?Craig Whitaker answers the question with an overview of projection mapping in Cinema 4D and Nuke. You'll learn about C4D camera mapping tool: Projection Man, and how simple modeling and deformers can both match the photo and add life to the scene.


Cinema 4D MoGraph: Project Breakdown Presentations from NAB 2015

Thanks to Maxon US and Cineversity.com for recording and publishing the 2015 NAB Live Cinema 4D Presentations. They’ve just released presentations on Motion Graphics along with a number of other great presentations.

Playlist Description

  • Barton Damer from AlreadyBeenChewed.tv demonstrates how simple Cinema 4D workflows can achieve dramatic results in projects for MTV Fantasy Factory, Street League Skateboarding and Nike Flyknit.
  • EJ Hassenfratz of eyedesyn shows how he utilized Cinema 4D's MoGraph and PoseMorph features in three separate motion graphics pieces: Ford Tough Science, Newton Awards and Sacramento Kings Court Projection Mapping.
  • Learn how to use Cinema 4D's Sketch and Toon, MoGraph and deformers to create 2D 'flat design' animations in this presentation from EJ Hassenfratz of eyedesyn.
  • Robyn Haddow shows how she and Scarab Digital use Cinema 4D's fast workflow to create fantasy user interfaces within the quick turnaround of episodic TV for CW's The Flash and Arrow.
  • Jeremy Cox from Imaginary Forces demonstrates how Cinema 4D was used in titles for WGN's Manhattan and the SXSW Gaming Awards.
  • Cake's Kevin Aguirre demonstrates Cinema 4D workflow techniques used in the creation of show opens for DirecTV's Red Zone and Fantasy Zone.
  • Kevin Aguirre from Cake Studios presents Cinema 4D techniques used to create energetic effects in stadium graphics for the Philadelphia Eagles.
  • Julia Siemon demonstrates techniques she used creating low poly mountains via the Displacer deformer and layered noises and gradients. She shows how Cineware makes it easy to composite and adjust the 3D in After Effects, and how to create a separate height map pass to use in compositing.
