3D Animation

Modelling

Our 3D animation design services are all encompassing, no project is the same and our workflow allows complete flexibility tailored to each project.

When we reach the build stage of a project, modelling is one of, if not the first step in the process. Each element or product of your project will be built as a model, we use Cinema 4D for this process. If you are able to provide the physical product then we will first 3D scan this at the studio and use the dense geometry from this scan as starting point for building the model. Other times we will be able to use technical drawings or measurements of the product to use as a starting point. Sometimes a project may require us to build something from scratch or purchase premade models for us to adjust.

Rigging

As part of our 3D Animation offering, rigging is often part of a project and something that the team are skilled in. Once a product or subject is modelled, it will often require movement for the final animation. If the subject is something that has movement itself, for example a character then this will require rigging.

Rigging involves building a skeleton framework that we can then animate in many different ways. Once rigged with skeletal bones, any 3D object can be controlled and distorted as needed.

Simulations

Simulations allow for dynamic, random and natural movement. We use particle simulations for liquids, fire, and cloth, working with either Insydium X-particles, Cinema 4D or Houdini. The team are also proficient in spline, hard and soft body dynamics within Cinema 4D.

New Balance Pride is a great example of Cloth dynamics. We used wind with turbulence to get the flowing movement of the fabric. Using spline dynamics to create the chain animation for Nike Sneakrs Tag we then adapted the dynamics to art direct the movement.
