  3. Here is a showreel featuring recent work from the Movult studio. Thanks for watching. www.movult.com
  4. Hey all! I've been a long time reader of this great community had I've learned a lot throughout my years. I'm currently in the middle of writing a thesis and preparing for my final project. My thesis is about Motion Graphics as a medium and what drives it forward. Here's a snippet about the idea that I'm going for. "Motion Graphics as medium has grown or gone forward, mostly thanks to new technology - be it faster computers that can handle more complicated compositions, newer versions of software, or plugins and scripts that help create new effects that we have not seen before. Though, once something has been made/explained/used in a certain way, we'll start seeing it everywhere in one form or another. Eventually arriving to present day where we can know everything that is about to happen in a video from its thumbnail. For an example, the community saw a lot of more "experimental and new" things in 2010 & 11 - than we see today. How or where can motion graphics grow when the stream of new technology is slowing down?" Keeping that in mind, here are some questions that I would like to ask. ------- What are your views on the current state of Motion Graphics? (What are some factors that made it the way that it is today and why? Is it in a good state? Is there enough variety?) ------- Do designers care about the content that they're animating? Or is it mosltly about getting the smoothest and the most eye popping animation possible? (Should we as designers think about things that are a bit more meaningful and go past motion blur and reflections? Is it even our place? Or is this whole medium only about animating the smoothest scene? Why?) ------- When comparing motion graphics to printed matter, motion graphics is largely dominated by commercial work. Rarely we see something made for non profit, for cultural enhancement, or even thought provoking. The small amount of work that does stand out and carries some kind of a message still gives the feel that the content wasn't as important than, for an extremely simple example, making a really well animated overly complex chart of numbers, or getting from one scene to another through an overly animated reveal. What are your views on this? ------- What would make designers start doing more truly experimental work and step out of the vector based easy eased metaphorical box? ------- Throughout the years that I've been in the Motion Graphics scene, I've come to an understanding that there's a very strict notion of what is wrong and what is right. A very simple example - flat speed is wrong and thus bad, eased speed is right and thus good. But if we take other mediums - like print or music - then the rules are much more relaxed and can be bent according to need. Why are Motion Graphics so strict? ------- I think the tutorial community is largely responsible for what we see being produced today. What are some ways the tutorial community would have to change in order to inspire designers to learn instead to copy? ------- Any last thoughts on the subject of the future of Motion Graphics? ------- If anyone does take the time to answer these then It would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
  5. Hey, I wanted to put a thread out there to see if there is any interest in a animation / mograph meetup type thing. I see that there seems to be a lot of AE and C4D meetups in various big cities but I'm failing to see anything similar here. What I was thinking of was getting people together who are interested in Mograph / Animation / AE / C4D / VFX etc and meeting for a drink etc and seeing what happens. It could be a great way to meet new people and just have someone to talk too about our interests. I asked the question before but no known meetups existed. I've googled it quite a bit and can't seem to find anything (I may also just be looking in the wrong place so if anything does exist please point me in the right direction). I have spoken with a couple people already and they are keen to meet. There seems to be a lot of us doing this type of work in and around Melbourne and it would be great to meet. If anyone is interested then please do get in touch and I can arrange something! You can email me at info [at] liamcarlin [dot] com or reply to this thread. Thanks Liam p.s. I will be posting this on a few forums so apologies if you see this twice or thrice!

  8. Hey guys! Just thought I'd share this cinematic (from the PC game Guild Wars 2) our team was finally able to release. We ended up rendering the character models through a model viewer in-engine because we couldn't replicate the shaders and textures in maya. It was kind of a crazy pipeline to go from game->maya->model viewer->AE...but i think it worked out pretty well, aside from a little slip and slide with the animation. Special thanks to Andrew Kramer for the Element 3D plugin...It really helped us with render time and quick iterations. The team was average sized (and we worked on a bunch of other projects during the 3 months it took) 3 motion graphic artists 1 tech artist 1 concept artist 2 animators (we are also hiring a senior level motion graphics artist -Full time -on-site...check out the listing in the job forums if you are interested)
  9. Hello all, i'd appreciate some feedback on my latest animation. Its a short film inspired by exhibition of Post War British Textiles at Copenhagen Design Museum. Thanks for watching.
  10. “There’s a lot of wonderful possibilities for real-time visual compositing with Quartz Composer. Most existing QC learning resources though, tend to emphasise the generative graphics capabilities of QC. For those with a post-production, animation, motion graphics or VJ background – QC’s composition potential can be difficult to unleash.” Hoping to make the transition to Quartz Composer a bit easier for the above kinda folk - I’ve gone and made a page which documents how various animation + post production techniques and processes can be recreated inside QC… (eg Composite multiple video sources, Image Masking, Pre-framing video into compositions, Working With Layers from Photoshop, Nesting + Pre-composing in AE, Inverse Kinematics, camera paths.. etc). I’m planning to slowly add to this ‘Compositing with Quartz Composer‘ page over time.. with the hope that it’ll - help non-programmers with video compositing ideas, adapt to QC more easily help me wrap my head around QC better (the page features many questions…) encourage more experimentation with visual composition effects in QC (alongside the current popularity of using QC to generate graphics) Would love to hear from anyone with questions (about something that isn’t clear) – or suggestions ( how to clarify a concept better, or other animation concepts that could be included etc ). http://www.skynoise.net/quartz-composer/compositing-and-quartz-composer/

  12. Hi to everyone! Our studio has just updated its website. Lots of new work and a fresh new Reel as well. Take a look: www.img.tv Direct link to our new Showreel: http://img.tv/projeto?u=reel2013 Let us know what you think! Thanks!
  13. Hi, here is my new demoreel. the software used are AE CS6, 3D Max and Premiere CS6. Plugin used is Trapcode, and some free scripts downloaded online. Here is the link: http://vimeo.com/72957519 Any feedback would be much appreciated (constructive one please).
  14. In this tutorial, we show you how to crate a camera iris using Mograph, Effectors, and even a little Xpresso.
  15. Hey guys, I've got a question about compression software for video. I wanted to ask what is recommended as a video compressor these days. I use Quicktime Pro's built in feature for making x.264 videos, but find it slow and not always that great at handling gradients, even with grain applied before hand. I have recently started using Adobe Media Encoder, and feel that it has the best options and results thus far. I know there are options out there that cost lots of money, but wanted to see what the mass majority use. Thanks! Steve
  16. Hey Guy's I just updated my Reel tell me what you think http://www.behance.net/gallery/Demo-Reel-201213-UPDATED/8594523
  17. In this tutorial we learn some of the basic Cinema 4D tools and how they work. We also learn shortcuts that make getting around in CInema 4D easier and faster.
  18. This tutorial takes a look at the user interface of After Effects and also create a text hanging on strings animation.
  19. Here is my recently completed MoGraph Showreel. I could really use some criticism from some fresh eyes! Let me have it!! https://vimeo.com/68400958 Thanks for watching!

    My Demo Reel

    Hi, all. I recently discovered this forum and saw many nice works here, so I decided to throw my reel here. I started doing this thing 5 years ago (whyle studying computer science at Uni ) , and it's my first reel. As i have progressed a lot, it consists mostly of my last years works. any critique appreciated
  21. https://vimeo.com/16515963 My brand new demo reel... Thanks for watching
  22. Hi guys, this was entirely done in After Effects CS5. I used the Freeform Pro plug-in to create the monitor and the terrain. Shapshifter was used to create the logo. Any feedback are more than welcome. https://vimeo.com/67876305
  23. Made this from assets that were from another small project. Hope you all enjoy it, and any feedback is welcome. http://vimeo.com/67312701
