04.28.2015   OCTANE FOR CINEMA 4D

MUNICH 25th / 26th of JULY 2015

I´m proud to announce that because of the success of the first seminar I will be holding the 2nd Octane for Cinema 4D workshop at AIXCADEMY

AIXCADEMY

Octane for Cinema4d gives you an overview over the versatile possibilites that a GPU renderer offers in a fast paced production environment.

We'll be looking at the various rendering methods that Octane offers as well as the lighting and material system.

The target of this course is to enable you to create highly realistic highend results in the shortest amount of time.

Cheers Raphael

02.05.2015   Hello Everyone.

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.
Picture

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.
Picture

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!

Cheers Raphael

12.10.2014   After a very successful C4DAPT I have put on line the Artwork I made for this event.
Its a hand full of pens rendered in Octane as photo realistic as possible.

Again you can find it in the WORK 2D section.
I hope you enjoy!

Cheers Raphael

10.09.2014   C4D ADVANCED PRODUCTION TECHNQUES 2



Almost one year ago I kindly was invited by Pingo Van Der Brinkloev to take part at the "Cinema 4D Advanced Production Techniques" seminar to talk about photorealism in V-Ray.

This time my Course will be Called:
"Physics of Matter: From Reality to Shader"

My goal will be to teach the physics behind material creation with the purpose that everyone can make more physically accurate shaders independent of the render engine.

Interested?
