  1. I would say use a Random Effector. Drop it under the mesh and set it to deform the points with some animated noise, you can control the falloff this way too. Other way would be to use the displacer deformer.
  2. Hi Si I worked on the idents doing 3D and compositing. Tezuka is definitely right. Most of the lighting is in post. We used physical sky in C4d and then just built on that with solids in after effects set to add, some mattes to give certain bits like the meerkats hill and a bit of a glow on the edges, things like that. We used a bit of shine for sun rays too. The grade adds much of the feel too. Glad you liked them! Cheers Stephen
  3. There is a Dalston, in Cumbria. But there's also one in East London, about a mile from the city/shoreditch & Old Street. Estate agents call it 'Trendy Dalston' so beware inflated rents like much of round here. It's well connected by overland train and the East London line. Kingsland Rd (main road going from Shoreditch to Dalston) turns into Stoke Newington Hight St, which is 'nicer' I suppose, lots of pushchairs on a Sunday... cupcakes, that kinda thing. I live and work East and really like the area. You can get to Soho within about half an hour, maybe a bit more depending on where you live and proximity to a tube or overland station. It's not a big commute by London standards at all.
  4. Hi Mike Yeah that's right, I was using a mograph data node fed into a point node to snap the spline points to the clones! Ahhhhhhh the tracer. I just tried it and yeah, it made the expresso a complete waste of time. Thanks tezuka! Good tip on the dummy object too. I'm sure the problem will pop up again at some point... node... Really appreciate the help guys
  5. Hello all I normally would hold back on posting a c4d question here, but I've posted this at c4d cafe and haven't had a response as yet... with deadline looming. So, sorry about the cross-post, and the copy and paste from there. In the file I have a random effector set to linear falloff, moving downwards and displacing clones on the x/z axis, drawing a graph like line. A spline is connected via expresso so the points on the spline snap to the clone position as the random effector displaces them. Problem is I've got a lag that won't go away. The spline is struggling to catch up with the clone position and seems to lag by a frame or so, or i skip a frame forward, it lags then suddenly shifts into position a few seconds later. When I've done renders I get the same problem. So I thought it would be a priority problem, so I stuck my expresso at the bottom of the hierarchy then gave priority to generators with a setting of 499 to no avail. It'd be great if someone had an idea of what I could do to sort this out file link c4d file
  6. Got this for Christmas... worth picking up even if a lot of the graphs are kind of pointless https://shop.gestalten.com/index.php/catalog/product/view/id/160
  7. Hello I'm having a few problems using Thinking Particles, with the TP presets (which are very good). I hardly know anything about expresso, which is why I'm bolting together the presets but I've come unstuck. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/6179563/example.c4d I have a couple of emitters in different particle groups. Both emitters are the multishape emitters. I've parented it all under a null in the hope I can attach it to an object in my scene- but when I keyframe the parent null only one of the emitters moves with it, the other is stuck in it's original position. Like I say, I've got a very limited knowledge of expresso, but if anyone can give me any pointers on how I can get both emitters moving under the null I'd be very happy. Cheers! Edit::::::::::::::::::: I think I figured it out... but there's probably a better way to do it. I parented each emitter and 'effector' to a null in their expresso tags. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/6179563/example2.c4d Sorry, seems obvious now....
  8. I think acrobat pro can make something like this with it's pdf portfolio
  9. Can't believe no one has said this already, but - really really good in particular the Kanal / TVNorge stuff
  10. Wow looks like it works pretty well, cheers for that
  11. Don't mean to sidetrack this thread but... Does anyone know how this (the 550d /t2i) compares to the video on the 7d? I'd be mainly interested in the video, with primes... for £800 its pretty exciting. Also has anyone used the foundry's skew plug? I've read that it's pretty good for minor hand-held shaky.
  12. I like this one a lot.... http://www.i-reel.fr/_videos/_videos/Hautlence_HL_Q.mp4
  13. Assuming you mean in c4d? Like this? Put texture A on object. Use an animated gradient in the alpha channel on texture B. Or somebody else will probably give you a better, quicker answer c4d file Just had a look at this and it doesn't quite do it, but with some adjusting you should be able to do it.
  14. I'd second the CMI Vfx C4d Projection Man tutorial... I got it a while back and still haven't got around to going through it properly. Definitely a tricky subject. But I'd say even from doing a quarter of it it's worth the money, their free tutorials are pretty good too.
  15. Yep Bobo, thats the Cs4 preset... We still use 1024x576 but it confused me too. Apparently the 1050 is right and I think there's been a thread here about it before. The white paper also went straight over my head. Then again I haven't had any 1024x576 stuff sent back from the BBC. As far as I can tell (and I'm probably wrong) the extra pixels make up, or compensate the area on the edges where there is distortion of the image on a tv set. Or am I stating the obvious? found a previous thread with a link to adobe's explanation http://mograph.net/board/index.php?showtopic=18388 http://help.adobe.com/en_US/AfterEffects/9.0/WS3878526689cb91655866c1103906c6dea-7f3aa.html#WSA803DAFB-1445-4870-840A-4599ECBC3066
