Orrery - Personal Learning Project

Recommended Posts

A test piece for a faux title sequence, re-adapted from a previous commercial project produced for ITV (UK based TV channel).

Produced mostly in C4D, the rotations of the planets were calculated via xpresso, I found the orbit times foreach planet on Wikipedia, then set up the expressions for each planet's orbit time. (A collegue helped me with the math).


Finally the animation was exported as Alembic, then shaded and rendered with Blender/Cylces, composited in AfterEffects.

Just a bit of fun really, trying to explore a workflow between C4D/Blender.



Screen shot of the the Xpresso to rotate the Earth mesh. The other plants follow the same set-up, with a change in the 'Days to Orbit' node.
