It’s been another week in motion design and we have some more great stuff for you to enjoy. This week we have a new episode from Keyframe TV, a new five second project from GreyScale Gorilla, some great tutorials from CG Tuts, a great link from to a preset that i discovered courtesy of Hypoly and some great transitions for text in Cinema 4D.
It’s another Five Second Project from GreyScale Gorilla, and another chance to create something great for your showreel. This time the theme is “Nude No More” If you haven’t seen GreyScale Gorilla’s Five Second Projects, then basically it’s a chance to make something cool looking for your showreel, but you have to make sure it’s no more than 5 seconds. Have a look at the video below and hear the Gorilla himself talk about it.
CG Tuts had some great articles this week, the first one is how to composite a 3D object into video footage using Boujou, Maya and After Effects. Check out the preview below.
The second article is a nice article for those people wanting to create an animated movie but aren’t sure what they might need to do to achieve that. The post gives a good overview of everything that happens from the start to the end.
I discovered a great link via Hyploy’s website to Ryan Ragle’s Sure Target for Cinema 4D. This looks pretty good, considering how good Sure Target is for After Effects, i would definitely go and check out this plugin for Cinema 4D.
I found a great set of transitions for Cinema 4D this week called Thrausi Transitions, The basically use the mograph module for Cinema 4D and some effectors. They were originally created by Mike Udin but the tutorial has also been translated into english. Check out the preview of the transitions below.
If you can speak russian then you can check out the original tutorial by Mike Udin, or if your an english speaker then check out this tutorial by camotion.net . The downloads for the thrausi text transformations can be found here.
Last but not least it’s a new episode of Keyframe TV! Check it out below!
That’s it for this weeks ‘This Week in Motion Design’! If you think we’ve missed out on anything then let us know and we’ll link to it next time!
