  1. I hope this is appreciated on here - a little nervous to post my work on this forum. Nevertheless I would appreciate comments good or bad - thank you! https://vimeo.com/300498965
  2. That's amazing StCanas! Thank you so much. But I'm sorry to say, there's still the issue of distortion in the centre, it's a very slick method, but I think I would need greater control. The client is quite insistent that it looks right. I have been playing with the pose morph tag and whilst it's a really time consuming task getting each iteration correct, I'm getting some joy. See attached Foil pose morph 5.c4d
  3. Thank you Deck, that looks promising. Again I never would have considered this approach. My concern is that the client requires a very specific laser cut in the foil and I don't think I'll get away with any variations on that theme. I will have a mess about with your model and see if I can reconcile the two. Really good suggestion :)
  4. Hi StCanas, the problem with this method is that it is vertically distorting the foil in the centre, then throw in the requirement for a curved laser cut and I'm just not sure it's going to work - huge thanks, but so sorry :(
  5. Yup, I'm glad someone else sees how much of a rod I've made for my own back! My contingency plan is to use creative camera angles to mask the sh*** bits ...
  6. This is my best attempt so far - pretty shabby TBH Lid IK model 3.c4d
  7. Thank you Mjohnny, yes I tried the pose morph tag and I couldn't get it to play ball. But maybe I should have another go now that I'm desperate! Really appreciate your help.
  8. I never would have thought about that solution StCanas! I will have to do some messing about to see if I can get it to fit, I think the main stumbling block will be the requirement for the curved shape of the laser cut on the foil, will let you know if I have any success. But thank you! I really appreciate that, proper outside-of-the box thinking!
  9. I'm not exactly a newbie, but I could do with some advice regardless. I need to peel the seal off a coffee jar in a convincing manner, but due to the shape of the foil, I cannot get a perfect peel action. I want this to look awesome with no stretching or distortion. Has anyone got any suggestions as to how this would best be tackled? I have tried character rigging it, I have tried various deformers. I used vertex mapping to control the transitional shape. I have tried building the foil with different meshes to make it more efficient, but can't really get it to behave as I want. Admittedly I'm no great aficionado with character rigging, deformers or vertex mapping, so I concede, I'm probably missing a few tricks. Here are some images that I used for the storyboard - hopefully these explain the shape of the foil and the peeling action that I want. It's quite a satisfying feeling when you peel it in real life and I want to get that across as best as possible. Please help me C4D geniuses! Huge appreciation in advance
  10. Anyone? I have updated the information in the job description.
  11. Apologies for not replying to any of you. I was told to put the recruitment drive on hold, whilst we were awaiting the results of our tender.
