CINEMA 4D's sophisticated features help Colin Sebestyen realize a diverse range of stunning animations. See how he used L-Systems, and several other tools to build his impressive repertoire.
In this presentation, Colin demonstrates how he used procedural materials, random effector as a deformer, basic Xpresso to create wolves for a piece entitled Futura Lobo for IDN Magazine. In a repeat from Day 1, Colin provides an extensive explanation of MoSpline's Turtle mode and L-Systems while demonstrating a live backdrop created for Miamisburg Color Guard. Finally, Colin demonstrates in slightly more depth how he used C4D content in Quartz Composer and VDMX to create a live 3D VJ-style presentation controlled through midi for the hip-hop music maestro Edison.

Adobe’s launch of CS6 and The Creative Cloud represents a huge paradigm shift for their whole creative suite line. To celebrate this re-thinking of the creative process, they reached out to some incredible artists to develop imagery for each product and each Suite family. When they came to Studio B Films to develop a stinger animation to introduce The Creative Cloud and CS6, they brought along all of the stunning artist imagery and a wide open playground for us to visually tell the launch story and inspire the audience. Early on it became clear that this piece shouldn’t be like previous launch videos. We stripped out any demo or specific feature aspect of the show to make it conceptual and to really honor the artistry that went into the imagery and the products themselves. Special thanks to Devin Earthman and Michael Rigley for their stunning motion design and animation awesomeness on the piece. And Johnny Random’s killer audio track brings it from subtle and understated to an explosive finale. Creative Direction by Aaron Barry. Produced by Jane Selle Morgan.
