1. In this presentation, John Robson demonstrates techniques from two projects he worked on with Mirada - advertisements for Vizio and Innova - as well as three separate short film projects he worked on independently.

    John first demonstrates how the Camera Shader and PolyFX were used to create an animation that appears to move through a starfield with constellations that take on familiar icons.

    In the Innova DNA promo, John utilized a MoGraph to Nulls preset and Tracer to link together atoms in a DNA strand. In the City promo for Innova, John shows another use for PolyFX - deconstructing a skyline. He also uses the Cloth Surface generator to add thickness and the Atom Array generator to create a truss structure.

    John switches gears to demonstrate how he used Cloth’s tear functionality to add a shirt tearing in a visual effects shot for his short film Epoch.

    In Supper Time!, another independent short film, John used Soft Body Dynamics, Realflow fluids and Tracer to simulate meatballs, sauce and spaghetti.

    Finally, John delves deeper into Realflow and Maxwell Render as he demonstrates his most recent independent short film, Red Within. You’ll see how these powerful applications from NextLimit integrate seamlessly with Cinema 4D.
