For project 5 there is around 4 main 3D sequences that occur in video 2 and 3. These are highlighted in the storyboards.
These consist of showing the ctex machine and its flower pattern lights (the animation used for the concept/prototype)
Showing the fabric rolling left and right so that the customer knows to notify ctex about which direction the fabric rolls on their own machine.
Showing a PC on the left and right of the machine so the customer knows to notify ctex about which side the controller will be standing on.
And lastly the control box being closed to show dimensions needed to install. Or if they don’t have one to offer purchase of correctly sized control box.
Therefore I have created a timeline and lists to hopefully create all the assets in the allotted time.
As you can see so far I have created most of the initial assets needed for the animations however I still have to create the control box and also figure out a way to actual get the fabric to roll.
I have also created a basic setup where most of the animations will occur. Although this is very early stages and really just a jumping off point in terms of layout and structure.
I tried to use this tutorial to add movement to the fabric but unfortunately on my first attempt i couldn’t get the motion graphic elements moving. This was very irritating however I will attempt it again with a more thorough understanding of the concepts behind it and hopefully it will be second time lucky… Watch this space….
I have also made a start on the computer side to side animation as i have created all the necessary assets for this section. Again it is really basic with no real texturing or lighting etc. However it is a starting point for further development….
