Transformer Animation

Recommended Posts

  • Topic Author
  • hey guys!

    i just got inspired watching the transformers trailer

    watch the end of the trailer closley!

    i want to create a transformer style animation ... but much simpler of course ... i want to start of with a small cube and this should "transform" into a bigger cube but with the same style ...

    can anybody reccommend a technique how to create this sort of animation? i played a bit solving it with mograph but it wasnt happy with the result!

    have a nice day!

    best

    not sure with MG..but if you take some time..and model it out...

    model trans from pose 1 to pose 2...new model...pose 2 to 3...render pose 1 to 2..save

    render pose 2 to 3...save...then mix in AE or Vegas or combustion..etc...if I had time I would do a short wip for you....

    good luck...

    great! thanks!

    A good design could use morph tools to achieve the transformation. Cactus Dan has a small demo of something like this where an object goest through radical changes by morphing the vertices. Mke what you wish to start with and save that pose or keyframe, then make changes, etc.

    thanks a lot OD1 ... it looks really cool ... the thing is that i want to make a transition from one object to another ... so do you know a way to let an object explode to another object?
