self promotional animation for Motion3Design.
omg, we got hacked … and the revealed information is what we offer our clients.
Motion3Design is my company based in Switzerland and we manly provide services to German speaking clients … that might be the reason you were not able to decipher the revealed information ; )
basically it says that Motion3Design creates videos that combine design, animation, 3D, live action footage and visual effects.


 
basically in what ever order you put the spheres, they always get sorted by their colour at the end.
the way the inside obstacles are organized the spheres bounce depending on their mass, luminescence and colour-depth.
the inside structure has also a strong influence due to optics and reflections which are also helping to guide the spheres.
basically optics, structure and mass are responsible that the sorting by colour works ; )

seriously … all CGI. just some practice to integrate a 3D render into real footage.
and the idea of this colour-sorting-machine was inspired by an existing video but was a good exercise!

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:
