I return to animation after almost 4 years of being dedicated only to photography and video, with this study in motion design, a challenge, seeking renew my knowledge, update on new techniques in order to carry out a project within a limit time with the available resources.
The goal was to make at least 10 different animations on the same object, or how a system interact in this case, my logo, as a solid block in the middle of a scene.
Part of the challenge was make each of the animations with a maximum of one (1) Keyframe, use procedural animation, MoGraph, X-Particles, RealFlow, Hair and where possible some Xpresso.
I achieved the aesthetics of the animation with Arnold Renderer, for me the best discovery I've made in a long time, with which I learned a lot more about lighting, textures and materials and other technical terms that had never interested me, but now fascinates me.
The end result is a work with which I am very satisfied, my return was not at all traumatic, all this display of fantastic tools had not done lest that blow my creativity, now I feel better prepared to face new challenges.
