SIGGRAPH Render

This was one of the projects I talked about during my SIGGRAPH presentation for MAXON. This is a shot I created while beta testing R14. I used the new camera calibration tag, motion camera, normalizer shader and aerodynamics. I also modeled and textured (bodypaint) a trashcan for the scene and rendered some TFD dust coming out of it. Also, you can find a similar project I made in the R14 Content Browser.  Read more →

Tutorial 05: C4D Multi-Pass Rendering/Compositing and Shadow Catching.

Hey everyone, here’s a tutorial I made that explains my multi-pass workflow in Cinema 4D to After Effects. Namely, my focus was to show how to set up your C4D scene to catch shadows properly on live action footage or a photograph in one render. I’ve had a lot of questions how to do this so I hope this is helpful for some.

Often you will here C4D users ask if there is something similar to 3DS MAX’s “Shadow Matte” material. The answer is yes and you don’t need a plug-in like “Shadowcatcher” to achieve this. You can do this natively in Cinema 4D. Not only do I show you how to set the material up I made a content browser preset ready for download. Cleverly named “Shadow Matte”. Read more →

Winter’s Blob: Preview for up and coming tutorial.

Here’s a look at an up and coming tutorial that I’m working on. I shot the footage with my 550D, shot a HDR on set, shot a lens grid, match-moved the footage in SynthEyes, added some CG elements in C4D, rendered in Vray then comped it all together in After Effects.

Thus, it will be a pretty in-depth tutorial :).

Music: Daft Punk from The Tron Legacy soundtrack. Track 2: The Grid. I had to edit around Jeff Bridges voice.

After Effects & SynthEyes Quick Tip: SynthEyes for AE 2D Tracker.

Quick Tip number two: Using SynthEyes to generate a 2D tracker in After Effects.

Beta Testing The Foundry’s CameraTracker Plugin.

This was a quick example I made while I was beta testing The Foundry’s CameraTracker Plugin a few months ago.  I finally made it viewable on Vimeo.  It’s a fantastic plugin for people that want to enhance their compositing with 3D tracking directly inside of After Effects.  Thanks to CameraTracker, Colorista II and Action Essentials 2 this only took me a few hours to create.  The footage was shot on a RED camera.

Cinema 4D Fireball (Press Photo)

Here’s a photo I compositied for a client. I created most of the fireball in Cinema 4D using Turbulence FD. Then I blended several C4D renders together in photoshop along with one stock photo of fire.  Click on the image to see all the detail.
