FLOW | A Mograph & VFX Process Part 01: Overview


Today I am proud to announce a new multi-part series of videos called ‘FLOW’ that will showcase a Cinema 4D & Nuke workflow.  FLOW will explore that workflow experienced in a real life motion graphics & visual effects project.  Artist Craig Whitaker will guest host this series along with myself and we will discuss both the “how” of getting through a project as well as the often more important, “why”.  We will begin at the early stages of art direction, script review and initial client requests. As we move through the project, various software techniques and choices will be explained and demonstrated – with the focus being on why each step of the project was completed in a certain fashion. Topics will include but are not limited to: art direction, addressing client demands and changes, matchmoving, when to get out of 3D, and much, much more.

Please enjoy Part 1 where guest host Craig Whitaker Jr. will give a brief overview of the project we will be breaking down and more about what we want to accomplish in this FLOW series.  Stay tuned for more videos in this series!

Create a Fractured Text Transition in Cinema 4D


In this tutorial I’ll be going over how you can recreate the Winter X-Games 2013 text fracture transition using Cinema 4D.  First I’ll show you how to keyframe the words going from one word to another using the MoType object, then we will add distortion using a Displacer deformer and other methods to get the a seamless, smooth, and organic fractured text transition.  Finally, I’ll show you how you can easy change the words to create a new text transition quickly and easily!
