    Custom S5 – Everything is better in black

    Tuesday, March 11, 2014

    This is a quick render I did the other day. It was rendered in V-Ray and comped in Fusion. My only thought when I started this image was everything looks better in black which is definitely true when it comes to cars. The gold stag on the number plate is the Mackenzie stag. I will have a making […]

    Ocean Water Test – HOT4MAX

    Tuesday, March 4, 2014

      So a little while ago I wrote a quick article about a plugin I purchased called HOT4MAX . Long story short, this a very short render test of the plugin. I put the test together in about an hour, as you can no doubt tell by the camera animation. I can report, that the plugin […]

    So I thought I would have a go at creating a music clip for a competition on Genero. The track was challenging and very much outside of your usual music clip territory not just for being a classical piece of music but mainly for its rapid changes in pace and the abruptness of it. As […]

    EXPERIMENTAL: An Idea Is Born

    Monday, January 27, 2014

    I am calling this one an experimental video as it was done very quickly (in less than a day). Very simply, I think it is a visualisation of where or how an idea is created. If nothing else it is a little bit of eye candy. Below is the clip and underneath that is a […]

    Aston Martin short/tvc/video thingo…

    Tuesday, January 21, 2014

    So I thought I would start the new year off with some making of clips from a little animation I have been working on. It was inspired as you no doubt will be able to tell by Joseph Kosinski’s Black Bird spot that he made some years ago. I have always liked it and thought I […]

    Suzuki Grand Designs TVC

    Tuesday, April 24, 2012

    Towards the end of last year we (Our Vision) were engaged to create a Grand Designs inspired TVC for Suzuki who are sponsors of Grand Designs Australia.

True Crime Titles – Antibody

This is one of the nicest hottest title sequences I have seen in a long time. The style and treatment really appeals to me along with just about everything else about it. I was very excited to learn that it was done by Sydney based Patrick Clair and his studio Antibody. Check out the spot […]

Iron Man 3 – Weta Digital

This post is a bit late, no doubt about that. I have to admit I am a massive sucker for the Iron Man films, no wait all of the Marvel films… Moving on, I really liked this look at some the of the great work Weta has done for Iron Man 3. The model of […]

Hot Box Source

I was recently asked if I could give out the source code to my Hot Box which I have decided to do. I had planned to develop it a lot further but time got the better of me. Starting a new job and jumping straight back into production meant that I had to abandon it. Truth be told I […]

Select Objects By Material Name

As the name implies this is a simple script for selecting objects based on the name of the material assigned to them. I originally wrote the tool to deal with a sketch up file that was exported for 3ds max. When it came in it had thousands of objects each with their own material, this […]

3DS Max Hot Box

There are many things I like and dislike about many software packages, one thing I do like is Maya’s hot box. Over the years I have often thought it would be great to have a hot box style interface for max. Well lately two things have happened. First I have had some spare time up […]
