John Mendez After Effects class
Using the background I created in Illustrator in After Effects. I animated clouds moving in from the left and right side of the screen. I used a snow effect to add interest.
This is a screen shot from a ping pong animation I made in After effects. The rectangles are animated up and down whilst the ball is animated across the screen to mimic the classic game.
This is a screenshot of a video made in our motion graphics session. I used multiple video elements layered in a composition to create a futuristic video.
John Mendez Cinema4d class
A simple train created using basic 3d shapes in Cinema4d. I have used cubes and cylinders, and the human and landscape objects. I also created some simple materials to add to the objects.
I created a wine glass using a path I drew out in Illustrator. I used this with a lathe NURBS object which rotates the path to create a 3d object. I also created a glass material to make it look realistic.
My progress with my 3d model of a person. I used the knife tool to add cuts and sculpted the model using an image as a reference. I only need to model one side as a symmetry object duplicates the other side.

Using the pen tool to create a polygon look on the spacecraft.
Using the pathfinder tools to create more complex shapes.
This is a background made in Illustrator to be taken into After Effects as a background for my animation.
Catherine Hardwick After Effects classes
These are some screen shots of my motion graphic made in After Effects. The pieces are all created in Illustrator and imported into After Effects.
The pieces are put together in a composition, and the positions and rotations of the shapes can be animated.
I also put in some footage of a heart rate monitor. There is an audio clip that is synchronised to the movement of the pulse.
The motion graphic was then exported to a Quicktime movie file.
Catherine Hardwick Cinema4d classes
Our first session helped us get to grips with creating and moving 3D shapes around in the viewport. We used cubes, cylinders and toruses to create a wooden style train toy.
For this session, we drew out a path in Illustrator and brought it into Cinema 4d. We used a lathe NURBS to create a wine glass, and created a glass material to make it transparent.
In our last session we used a tool in Cinema 4d called Mograph. You can use sound clips to create animations procedurally. The Mograph object uses the wave of the sound clip to create this equaliser effect.
Catherine Hardwick Illustrator classes
The first image is progress from a session looking at the Pen Tool. The pen tool is used to create what are called bezier curves and paths.
This image is from a session looking at using the Pathfinder tool to create complex images from simple shapes such as rectangles and circles.
This image is a look at the image trace tool to create vector images from photographs. These images can be scaled without losing quality.

CINEMA4D Progress – Andrew Hails
Using parametric shapes such as cubes and cylinders, with deformers to create a wooden block style train. Each piece was put into a hierarchy.
Using a path from Illustrator we created a wine glass using the Lathe NURBS object. It takes the path and rotates it to create a 3D model.
The beginnings of my model. This model was created using a technique called polygonal box modelling. We used a reference to build our model from. The model is built from polygons and points.
