Experimental

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 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).

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!
