I updated my Portfolio with an animation:
"Moon Titlesequence" You can find it in the WORK 3D gallery.
Initially it was planned to make a photo real sequence where the UFO is built up bit by bit.
I already had built the entire UFO in shiny 3D when the decision was made that something else was needed.
I began to trace all edges of my 3D model with splines and built my own animatable wire frame.
The Cartoon Renderer was not an option as the splines had to be animated in a very controlled matter. So I used the Edge to spline command quite a lot and rebuilt the contours of the UFO using Splines.
For the Animation of the splines I dropped them into a Sweep Nurbs object and animated the length parameter.
The Paper was rendered inside C4D with the Physical render. Some thicks with the Displace Deformer as extensive Texturing including C4D noise patterns were used to make the paper look reel and layered.
I also designed a font especially for the sequence that is animatable in After Effects.
After deciding on a camera movement inside 3D the C4D Camera was exported to After Effects. There I matched the animations of my wire frame that I rendered with a static camera before and the text that I exported in After Effects as masks from Illustrator in 3D with the animated paper.
And as always I hope you like it!
