brake-down of the “Endless Loop” animation showing how Particular, Plexus, Cinema 4D, TurbulenceFD and Horizon were layered and composited in After Effects
edit of some work and experimenting done during winter 2017/18
heavily inspired by the work of Robyn Haddow
FUI stands for Fantasy User Interface and it is a Motion Designer’s job to create them so they can be placed on screens to show those interfaces we all know from the movies.
this examples uses a DNA-Helix which was built, textured and animated in Cinema 4D and finalized with more data in After Effects.
the final version:
and applied to screens:
personal artwork to honor the work of Rudolf Hausner.
and actually my first render with Cycle 4D from Insydium. another great extension for Cinema 4D with this render-engine that offers endless possibilities!
great as X-Particles!

“keep growing together. 150 years create future.”
with this slogan in mind I was asked to create an animation that will be used for a TV-show as an intro.
color-pencils were used by the Swiss Kantonalbank already in the run-up to their anniversary-contest and should be part of the animation to show the 40 locations (4 major) geographically in the eastern part of Switzerland of the winner’s and where their projects will be realized.
this guideline lead me to this solution:
but for the tv-station the duration was to long and therefore this is the version that will/was be broadcasted:
from the technical point of view I used “Digital Elevation Maps” to create a geographically correct 3D landscape model and used satellite images to texture it. with this base it was an easy task to animate the pencils over it.
edit of some work and experimenting done so far in 2016 into a Journal-Reel.
all done in-house as own projects (participation on collaboration projects will be shown separately!).
using Maxon Cinema 4D (with: X-Particles, TurbulenceFD, NitroBlast and others), Adobe After Effects (with: Element 3D, Nodes 2, Trapcode Suite and others).
Closer for the new Investment Talks 2016
of the Kantonalbank St. Gallen
extract from the briefing:
“intro / outro should be transparent, neutral, modern, progressive, timeless and authentic and also on the same quality level as the competitor’s
these were the first ideas that I presented as sketches to pick a concept before finalizing a landscape and portrait version in 1080p:
just published the most recent Show-Reel 2015
an edit of some work and experimenting I have done lately … all made entirely in-house!!!
tools I used: Maxon Cinema 4D (with: X-Particles, TurbulenceFD, NitroBlast and others), Adobe After Effects CS6 (with: Element 3D, Nodes 2, Trapcode Suite and others), Final Cut Pro.
