In CINEMA4D we firstly created a 3D model made up of more basic ‘parametric’ shapes such as cubes and cylinders. These were arranged in 3D space into a toy train model. I have used deformers (purple lines) to distort the basic shapes.
We started working on a human shaped model in CINEMA4D, using a method called ‘box modelling’. We added more faces and points using the Knife tool to add ‘cuts’ to the model. The shape of the knee in my model has messed up a bit as I put in too many cuts!
The final session in CINEMA4D looked at creating animation. This type of animation is known as ‘procedural’ animation as there are no keyframes. CINEMA4d uses a tool called Mograph, which takes a sound file and creates an equaliser effect using the different volumes.
