A Visual Arts Tour
Cinema 4D is a cutting edge 3D modeling, animation and rendering application that has been used on a number of high profile Hollywood productions including the 40th anniversary remastering of Star Trek The Original Series. SFI is one of only a handful of schools teaching this technology.
Here, Elissa is working with the software's new camera tracker. She's tracking footage and placing polygonal geometry in the 3D environment. Lighting will be added so the simulated glass TV screen will simulate the reflected light in the shot.
This is the interface inside of Silhouette with the powerful planar tracker Mocha Pro in its interface. It combines two powerful tool sets for tracking and object removal.
Here, Elissa is learning to create her own surfaces for simple geometry. She'll light and render them with photo realistic results. This image is just the interface within Cinema 4D -- the image has not yet been rendered.
