Cinema 4D | Text Breaking with xbreaker

A test for xbreaker plugin for cinema 4D from nitroman, but it looks like it’s being replaced by thrausi, . I haven’t tried to crank the size and cracks up yet, but so far it’s pretty fun to play with. 🙂

Soft & Rigid body in Cinema 4D

A test of rigid and soft body in Cinema 4D. There’s a soft simulation glitch in the end, but that’s how i learn something. It’s not for a real project, so i don’t bother to re-render and re-simulate again. After all, a little error gives a learning process more interesting.. I learn a lot from…

Motion Track Test 03

My first test using mocha for AE CS5. It is a planar tracker. I usually use point tracker, ex: PFHoe or syntheyes, but this time I’d wanna give a try. I’m still trying to figure out which button do this and that, but the Imagineer channel is definitely a good place to start. Check out…

Motion Track Test 02

Another test with PFHoe-Maya-AE This time I’m trying to slow down when taking movie, and it actually works. The tracking got good reference, but some dark spots still left un-tracked, not a good solid one. Makes me want to try another shot or angle. 🙂

Motion Track Test 01

Camera : Canon 550D 18-55 mm Footage: 1280 x 720 50 pfs Pipeline : PFhoe-Maya-AE-Vegas Lessons from the test 1. Too shaky footage makes harder to track 2. Markers did a pretty good job, although slightly wiggles in the end 3. Considering using steady cam to gain more control 4. HD footage makes it heavy…

MayaAE Cam Matchmove 02

“what’s your plan for today?” well, this time i used the same file from the previous test, but different camera. Although it’s not a fancy move, i found that this movement suited better with broadcast type that I wanna do. Simple zoom in sometimes makes the message clearly conveyed. Next time perhaps i’d like to…

Underwater Effect in AE

A test i did with Psunami plugin to create underwater scene. I think it was a Digital Anarchy’s product but now it’s under the Red giant software line-up. You can read the new psunami plugin under Red giant here. It’s a quick way to create ocean inside after effects and has many features, including sky…

MayaToAE Camera Matchmove

I’ve been trying to compose the green screen footage onto a CG plate, but usually not worked out for me. So I tried once again, and doing some researches on the net. I used Maya and AE, and luckily there’s this video tut on cgtutplus which helped me alot to understand the technique. I’m still…

3D Environment Concept

Moving on…after the turntable, now it’s time for a camera movement test. Not an extremely difficult camera movement. Just subtle, nice pan from left to right (although i realized it was a little bit too fast in the end :D), zoom in movement and crane up. My goal was to test the overall look if…

Temple 3D Concept

After a while not doing some modeling, I tried to create this one. Not very complex one, but i enjoyed it a bit, especially the texture. Yeah, the texturing needs to be done carefully and I think I’ve missed and misplaced some textures there, but it’s a good practice. I’ll try again sometimes in the…
