FYP pt. x - Dynamics
Nicholas MakotoWednesday, Mar 27, 2019 - 09:10:57 pm
This week, I’m getting all the things that need dynamic simulation out.
I spent the better part of a day just figuring out the simulation for a hospital blanket that i’m happy with. This is the end result
It helped having first hand experience of the weight and texture of the blankets, so knowing precisely what I was aiming for helped. That Read more →

Finally on to the gimmick of this project!
To start, I set out into Illustrator to test out the limits of red and blue’s hue, saturation and brightness.

After that I started to apply the same principles to the files i already had rendered, first with stills and then with video.

FYP pt. 3 [HDRIs and Wet Floors and Depth of Field, Oh My!]
Nicholas MakotoMonday, Dec 03, 2018 - 08:59:59 pm
I’m exploring HDRI’s as a way of lighting my scenes. HDRI’s are 360 panoramic photos with multiple baked into one image with a large dynamic range; hence the term HDRI: ‘High-dynamic-range imaging’. These files are used as a means of lighting and are often used in 3D integration for live footage. The 3D software uses the image to calculate lighting Read more →
FYP pt. 2 [Motion blur, Materials, Lighting, Textures]
Nicholas MakotoMonday, Dec 03, 2018 - 04:21:16 pm
The weeks following the previous post was further experimentation and learning the technical aspects of what i want to achieve. I’ll be breaking these down into a few posts. In this one I’ll be covering the earliest weeks.
One of the problems I found was that my camera pans in C4D came out looking very flat, like a Ken Burns Read more →

show researched :
These are the show I watched in the past 2 weeks to get ideas for the robot personality, appearance concepts, and the overall world for O.U.R.S..next gen:
This is the nearest concept to what I have in mind, from the robot characteristic, appearance, to the overall concept. the Lab scene, the destroyed appearance is what i could reference on Read more →

After meeting with Prof LP, there is a few question that I would need to find out to make my project direction clearer:Why do I use devices? Because device is tangible object, its a physical thing that we can interact with. Although screens is also an object but the interaction are display it did not provide a physical, touchable and tangible Read more →

I think this is quite interesting where they uses the detection on the device to triggers the sounds. It makes the users move around to interact with the artwork which I felt its a different experience.
Maybe I could hang my camera this way for more feasibility.
In this artwork the photographer are portray in digital while also directing the model to Read more →
