Dataveyes is a start-up focused on interactive data visualization.
Data visualization turns large volumes of raw data into a meaningful piece. It creates a visual, esthetic and kinetic interaction, which directly reaches out to the user's intelligence.
At Dataveyes, we want to create a new visual grammar, a new way of telling stories with datas. We think this appears as necessary, for complex information is better memorized by the human brain through a visual form than words could ever be.
In this tutorial, I try to recreate a baseball animation I saw while watching the White Sox Vs. Tigers game on WGN this weekend. We start by texturing the baseball and setting the animation with CS Tools' Move Null. Then, we model and animate the dirt using the landscape object and a particle emitter. The Depth Of Field was added using the Physical renderer and the lighting was setup with the Light Kit Pro and HDRI Studio Pack. Finally, I show you how I did the time remapping, light leaks and compositing in After Effects.
