Motion Visualisation Script

As Maya doesn’t provide an internal strands-system, I thought I might as well write a small python script that fakes this kind of feature. You can see the spheres (dynamic movement) followed by simple geometry generated by the script – and then the whole thing rendered with a simple vray setup to test everything out.

Scatter Script

Scatter-Script

Lately i optimised some scripts and cleaned up some code. This one was quite fun to make, it’s a simple scatter-script with a strong performance focus.

4000 Mile Stare – WIP

I’m currently working on a shortfilm called “4000 Mile Stare”. You can have a look at wip-pictures, set-timelapses and other videos on the official facebook-page. I’m one of the Compositors and VFX-Set-Supervisor.

Unusual Usage of Maya Hair

Lately I got some requests for the files for this video. Its actually a pretty simple hair-setup combined with motion paths but if you would like to have a look at it, just write me a mail.

Room on the Broom wins at Annecy

2012 i was working at Studio Soi on a project for BBC 1. The 25 minute full-cg film “Room on the Broom” now won an Annecy Award. Its also nominated for an Acadamy Award for the Category “Best Animated Short Film”. I’m very happy that i got the opportunity to work on this beautiful movie.

Testing PF-Track

Normally i use Boujou and Syntheyes, but i had to try out tracking with PF-Track. I’m actually pretty satisfied with the results. I’m going to use it more often in the future.
