  2. I'm looking for an animation that's similar to the old 'Monty Python' type animations (something that you may have produced for a hot demo reel). My company (cruise line marketing firm) would be interested in licensing something like this for a video business presentation we have to have ready by next week. Here's a sample of the type of produced piece we're looking for....http://vimeo.com/8332546. Send me your links and estimated pricing for consideration. Brent
  3. I use Avid Media Composer and always export my AE animations, with alpha channels, using the 'Avid Meridian Uncompressed' codec. It seems to be the only one that doesn't crash my system. http://brentcarr.com/alpahcodec.jpg
  4. Thanks for your advice, this definitely sheds some light on the subject (no pun intended). The only problem I foresee is trying to still achieve shadows that fall off my host (the girl) and the watch which obviously are cast on the floor. I'm wondering if I'm going about this all wrong and should stick to just creating it all in AE.
  5. I've finally gotten to the point where I'm comfortable in C4D but still need the ability to manipulate 2D in After effects. From all the books & articles I've read you'd think I would have accomplished this already. Here's where I've done my research thus far... 1) BOOK - Creating Motion Graphics (from our friends 'the Myers') 2) BOOK - C4D 9.5 "Real World 3D Animation Production" 3) C4D to AE WEBSITE http://www.studiodaily.com/studiomonthly/t..."]TUTORIAL from Studio Daily With this said, here's my problem. Each one of these resources explains how to use this apparently simple integration between C4D and AE, but there seems to be a few gaps they don't cover which at this point are still hindering my progress. Basically what I'm trying to do is a build a virtual video set in C4D, import the .AEC file into AE and then add 2D images in between the object in the foreground and the background (which apparently you're able to do by using lights in C4D as placement holders). Somewhere in these tutorials, I'm missing something and I don't know what it is. I've gone step by step through the Studio Daily tutorial (which seems very clear and thorough), but when I get into AE there are things that don't make sense (which aren't discussed in any tutorial). Here's a screenshot of my AE COMP that shows what I created in AE originally. What I'm trying to do is recreate this in C4D and then add the product shot (the philip stein watch) as 2D.

  6. I'm the biggest mac geek I know and even I don't see the big hype. I guess if I were in sales and practically lived on my phone it would be cool.
  7. Very nice demo! It's work like that I rely on to inspire me on current projects. Very cool!!
  8. Just wanted to get some feedback on my new blog website. I've got to say, I've seen some great work on this site. I'm at the point where I need input from others in the field to take my work to that next step. I'd love any feedback you have on my work....http://www.brentcarr.com Thanks!
