The Making of Pixellation

The Making of Pixellation

Last week, Chris Cousins released a futuristic animation short, Pixellation, using Cinema 4D and Modo.  He says he made a “conscious effort to keep the animation physical, so the structures have mass and inertia.” The attention to details in this animation is incredible since the objects in short “are constrained to behave as believably as possible, in the context of this slightly abstract environment.”  Take a look at the making of footage above to see how he achieved his goal.

RollerCoaster 4D preset

Jochem Drost just released RollerCoaster 4D preset on his website.  With the preset, you can build your own dynamic roller coasters in Cinema 4D.

“I’m crazy about roller coasters and I was trying to build a dynamic coaster in c4d. I’ve tried it a few times before but I never got it to work, until now!  I kept improving and simulating to the best of my ability, and now 6 months later, it has evolved into a toolkit that all of you can use for free!”

Crux Design NYC: Financial Times “Graphic World”

An interactive projection installation created in partnership with Monogram for DDB UK. The four-projector installation included three short films followed by a user-controlled interactive experience. The short films convey global business in a simple and compelling way of 3D illusions that are 55 feet tall. Crux was responsible for one of those videos featured here.

Anti-aliasing in Cinema 4D


Motion Inspire Notes:

Anti-aliasing: Switch from Geometry to Best.
Min Level and Max Level:  Higher the number, better the image quality.
Threshold: Lower the number, closer it is to Max Level.  Higher the number, closer it is to Min Level.

Anti-aliasing affects your render time a lot.  So make sure to adjust it depending on your computer’s ability.
