Not seen this posted anywhere on here yet and they seem to have fixed the slow loading from when it first got put up. Must watch.

Mike thanks for the presentation the layered up animation & time track stuff is really exciting! Inspiring stuff.

Cheers Matt

ps. Nick C's is up too: http://www.cineversi...on.asp?tid=1775

edit* pps. I'm going to try and inject the phrase 'shifty mcgee' or variants into my future conversations wherever possible :)

Thanks guys.
I had a great time at NAB and the response from people has been nothing but ultra-positve.

I missed a lot of details in that presentation because I was trying to pack as much shit in as possible.
I also tried to ride the fine line between making a presentation that was accessible to beginners and equally engaging for experts, which was not easy.

This is only the second time I've presented my work publicly, but I really enjoy doing so. Hopefully some spare time will present itself in the near future to dive even deeper into this rabbit hole and do some proper walkthroughs with the C4D community. I love sharing techniques and ideas with peers... especially those beyond the "trick" level when you actually begin to see an obstacle in a whole new light. They're rare but very rewarding.

@froj

p.s. Nick C and I have discussed doing some more stuff collaboratively which I would very much enjoy. He's a really cool dude.

p.p.s The presentations I did on other days included some gems like "biz-buzz" and "flim-flammery". I find it helps to imagine yourself as a 70 year old man that has time traveled from the 1950's to 2010 and is asked to describe what he sees after watching 5 min's of commercials.

Very informative techniques, specially the mic, they all applied or stay current to many tasks that i find my self trapped.
Excellent job Monkey.

Weird to see that the_Monkey is a real guy, not some "Banksy" like enigma. I've always been crazy impressed with your research based approach, cool to see it live. I always enjoyed tearing apart the files posted by monkey (and everyone really) on this forum in the last 4 or 5 or so years and analyzing them. Thanks so much!

Now, back to work!

Great stuff. Love that you went beyond the software and a bit into the creative process and discussed why you tackled certain projects the way you did. Have used some of the ideas you discussed in the presentation on working with sound (and posted previously on mograph) and they have been really helpful.

Cheers!

One of my favourite threads on here was the breakdown of that awesome black and white piece in 08 you two did:

http://mograph.net/b...opic=17803&st=0 which goes into a ton of detail regarding what Mike spoke about at NAB

and my second favourite was when you guys posted a photo after it and some dude was taking the piss out of the monkey's 'gay' looking shirt or something and got shouted out of here by everyone haha, ridiculous.

I'm going to spend a week going through that thread again and trying to inject some sound into my animation now I have a chance of understanding it!

For the record it was my ghey shirt ;) Although I may point out I get more positive lady comments from it. I'd like to think of it more as a third world dictator look :) Me and AnthonyC had words in that thread for sure. We hugged and made up through PMs and I deleted my side of the thread.

Haha, very honest of you. Couldn't remember the details, I'm sure you looked dashing! ;)

Great stuff, loved the flower bomb!

totally confused on how you made that 6 though. can't figure out how to use the step effector, and more importantly how you made the planes curve and then straighten out as they arrive in position.

any pointers? or maybe a scene file?

I used that step effector to object geometry changed in the structure manager trick for a video for youtube advertise vids:
