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:


Edit of different projects and experimenting that I have made between January and February 2017.
all scenes were made in-house using Cinema 4D and After Effects.

edit of some work and experimenting done so far in 2016 into a Journal-Reel.


[for better resolution check this video out at the 3D Animation page]

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).

Based on Manuel’s tutorial “CREATING GEOMETRY WITH PYTHON IN C4D” I created a little rig to have all XPresso and Python ready in a c4d-file with some user-data to fill in and get started right away!
here a quick sample of what it does:


feel free to download the rig from the freebie page


starting with TurbulenceFD and using its simulation to drive about 2 million X-Particles with advection.
those were saved to prt-files with 10 partitions and loaded with the “Krakatoa PRT Loader” back into the Cinema 4D scene.
result were about 20 million particles that have been rendered into this clip!

February seems to become the month of Turbulence FD jobs.
here some tornadoish-style samples for a new project using TurbulenceFD driven by X-Particles inside C4D.
