The matrix draw helper plugin is a workflow tool that allows you to visualise more in the viewport when working with mograph, whilst keeping viewport speeds nice and friendly.
You can't render anything with this plugin (unless you're using a hardware mode etc) but that's why it works so fast. As there's no geometry or object overhead, the system is able to draw lots of content into the viewport so you can get your timing right for animating whilst using some of the different modes to help you see things like animated effects, clone direction and even some basic lighting.
I'd love to see what uses you can find for this. I already use it every day, hopefully it'll be useful for some of you too.
We were so thankful to be asked to reimagine our previous NFL Total Access package with this cleaner, brighter take on NFL Network’s flagship show. We retained the diagonal slabs and iconography that we established in the previous package to create a versatile physical space within the walls of a massive NFL logo. In addition to the 3d environment, we designed and animated a complimentary 2d / graphic space to do some of the show’s day-to-day heavy lifting. We also created a custom typeface for the logo and all of the primary type during the show. Big thanks to Carlos, Mario and Katherine at NFL and to our trusty audio counterpart, Echolab, for the sound design and custom track. :)
