1. After seeing this walkthrough (vimeo.com/11005057) over an interactive Fracture System on 3D Max I thought about trying to replicate the functionality in Cinema. With a little bit of xpresso, iterated ray collisions and some vector magic I was able to come up with exactly the same behaviour.
    There are two other ways to have almost the same behaviour, the first one is utilizing the Clamp function on the Constraint Tag. But with 1000s of pieces it is really slow and has some hickups. The second one is to use rigid body dynamics with an high follow Position/Rotation value which can also slow down significantly with higher Pieces number. Also controlling the dynamics can be quite tricky.

    BEWARE: It is really important that your fractured geometry pieces have their axis on the same Y value as otherwise your pieces won't be aligned and positioned correctly.

  2. Hello,

    and welcome to the first episode of season 03. I have the pleasure to interview a jung motiondesigner and C4D Artist, working at man vs. machine in London.

    candidate: Simon Holmedal (simonholmedal.com/)

    - study at Hyper Island (too)
    - working at manvsmachine.co.uk
    - have a look at his tutorials (vimeo.com/simonholmedal)

    - talk about developing steps from some jobs:

  3. more english tutorials will appear on my new youtube channel (youtube.com/channel/UCqq2mNFl5RzmbLAoBSxFR5w) so feel invited to subscribe there =)


    I am back with this helloween-cg-paper-moturial-episode. Its all I find out while I do this little test (vimeo.com/30302039).

    (52 minutes english) ___________________ hey, DO U notice… U can give me a ↓↓↓TIP ↓↓↓ if U like the Tutorial?!

    - paper like C4D material
    - prepare / modeling a soon to be foldet 3D model
    - the "magic" folding itself =)
    - how U can give simple non interpolated animations more dynamik touch
    - additional handcrafted cg-paperfolding

    Here is the final commercial, for what I developed the technik: vimeo.com/36558490

  5. See the full post on greyscalegorilla: greyscalegorilla.com/blog/2011/08/surface-deformer-tutorial/#comments

    In this tutorial i show you how to use the surface deformer to add additional movement to your geometry. This can be combined with other effectors/deformers to create just about anything.

    I used the techniques shown in this tutorial to create this ident/example : vimeo.com/27273122
