PROJECT 5 – The Final Brief

For project 5 I will be revisiting C-TEX and making a further 2 videos to complete the C-TEX Colour package. These will be available after the client has made the initial purchase of the machine and therefore will go into a lot more detail about pre installation of the machine and also training there workers to use the machine, and also showing the managers how to get the right information that they need from the spreadsheet that the program creates. Detailing different information about the materials being tested.

The first video is the sales video which was completed for Project 3.

The second video is a pre installation guide –

Pre-Install Video Script

Should be less than 5 minutes

Thanks for buying c-tex colour, this video guides you through 2 things:

1. The information we need from you in order to manufacture c-tex colour ready for you

2. For you to prepare ready for the installation

So…the information we need.

Firstly, we need a photo of where you would like c-tex colour to be installed. Here are some examples…

Then we need some dimensions so we can fit c-tex colour to your machine

Here we show you the dimensions we need

Secondly we need to know the direction the fabric is flowing in: please indicate this with an arrow

Thirdly we need to know at which side of the machine you wish the PC and Operator monitor to be located

Also please take a photo of your length measuring wheel (if you already have this installed) so we can assess how to fit our encoder onto this

Lastly, machine construction: Please indicate the materials your machine is made of and thicknesses. For example, Solid Mild Steel 6mm thick, Mild Steel Box Section 2mm thick with section of 100 or Wooden Section 15mm.

Therefore, the photo you send us will need the additional information as shown here (photo with all details on)

We can then build c-tex colour to fit your machine

Onto the second step:

For the installation we need:

Network Access to machine area for us to connect the c-tex colour PC to your network

Electrical power: single phase

If you have not purchased a control cabinet from us and you will be providing yourselves this needs to be onsite when we arrive. We require minimum internal dimensions of Height: 1000mm, Width 600mm, Depth 600mm. The operator monitor can be mounted above the control cabinet of you can purchase a control unit with monitor surround.

If you have not purchased a PC from us and you will be providing yourselves, please ensure this meets the specification we list in our agreement document and is available when we arrive onsite

If you are running c-tex colour for an inline process, for example a continuous dye range or sanforiser or compactor we will also need a mains compressed air supply provided, to include a regulator and moisture capture mechanism.

When we arrive onsite for the installation we need to meet with your factory engineering manager and IT manager to present what we are going to be doing while onsite and what support we need.

We will also need a meeting room with a projector or large monitor in order to give a training presentation for 1 hour. For the training we will need your colleagues who will be: operating c-tex colour, analysing the results of c-tex colour and managing the implementation of c-tex colour.

Adam has done these rough storyboards which really helped me to visualise what exactly needed to be done in terms of 3D animations. As this is the job role i will be fulfilling for this final project. I will of course have to make some more detailed sketches of what exactly needs to be shown in 3D and camera movements etc, however this quick visual is very handy for mapping out the whole video 2 sequence.


The third video is a training video – Full Script to follow…



C-TEX UK Marketing Campaign 3rd Project

Online Colour Matching

  • c-tex colour: has been designed to eliminate colour mismatching in garments and other sewn goods.
  • c-tex colour: monitors colour deviation of rolls throughout the length and at 3 points across the width.
  • c-tex colour: then batches together rolls with consistent colour to be ready for cutting together.


For Project 3 we have been tasked with marketing and advertising a specific hardware and mainly software that allows textile manufacturers to check colouring and dyeing. This is too prevent colour mismatching when sending rolls to garment manufacturers. It monitors the whole roll and 3 points across the width to ensure accuracy and consistency.


We have been tasked with creating 3 videos for the client and these involve:

Item 1: A sales video to introduce the problem we are addressing and our solution

Item 2: A Pre Install video so that customers can prepare for the arrival of their equipment

Item 3: A training video so that customers can start using the equipment well.

It became apparent in today’s lecture that the most useful way to use my 3D skills would be in the training videos as this would help show how it works while also using motion graphics to inform and teach the user about the equipment.

The key areas with this are:

Language – As this is an international product it needs to be transferable to any languages. There are a lot of sales overseas and agents that will sell the product to solely make money rather than to cater for the customers needs. Therefore there needs to be videos which clearly explain the product on offer and how it can benefit the user. This will also help with consistency of message and training so that there is always a way for users to train staff on the software and also make their own adjustments as and when needed.

Company Ethos – They are also a relatively new start up at only 3 years old The company and the environment within the textile / garment industry is “unprofessional” this means that it is not a suit and tie corporate affair. We have been asked to make this very clear in the videos. To understand that the company’s core values are more about getting the product out there and trying to make a difference in the industry. As well as concentrating on a few individual projects and really nurturing them and polishing them, making them as flawless and easy to use as possible without expanding and branching out into other avenues to quickly. In short they are not a get rich quick scheme and the opposite of a faceless corporation and they really want this to shine through in the videos.

I will start some research now into more instructional and 3D videos to try and understand what is being asked of me and also for some much needed inspiration. Also youtube and lynda tutorials will come in very handy for this project as i have a feeling a certain amount of 3D modelling will be needed and this is an area i struggle in. However the actual motion controls should be relatively easy to animate.
