Dreamcar and bouncy balls

It’s been a while since i posted a friday experiment, not because I havn’t been experimenting but because the results have not been that interesting to show off. I have made loads of tests tracking and stabilising hand held and bicycle shots. So if you have seen someone cycling around Copenhagen haphazardly with one hand on the handlebars and a small videocamera mounted on a ModeSteady in the other, it was most likely me.

This friday experiment is a stabilised handheld shot with a car replacement. The bouncy balls are mostly there to test shadows/reflections and the new dynamics in Cinema 4d r12.

Camera tracking made in SynthEyes. 3d i Cinema 4d R12.

Sharks at the harbour in Sæby

A motion tracking experiment for testing the workflow from shooting in 1080p, stabilising in SynthEyes and exporting to Cinema 4d in 720p to spice up the shot with a few 3d elements.

It was shot at the harbour in Sæby (Denmark) without the faintest idea about what to add in 3d. Normally when I do tests like these I just use a few spheres and cubes and bin the file when I’m happy with the result. This time I used the opportunity to play with the pixel effect used on the fishing boat but also other details like tracking the lamppost which moves in front of the elements added to the walls.

A special thanks to Robert Leger (www.robertleger.net) for his Voxel-Effect script used on the fishing boat .

Welcome to Creative Friday with Sønderby 3d

Welcome to Creative Friday with Sønderby 3d
My name is Svend and I work as a 3D freelancer in Copenhagen. I always try to have a ’Creative Friday’ in my small one man multinational company! Creative Friday is used as stimulation for the brain, to learn and to experiment. A typical experiment is related to my work but not something I work with on a daily basis. It can be an experiment with motion tracking, stopmotion or timelapse, 3D experiments which go a bit above and beyond the usual working routines, to go on a photo safari or just stimulate the brain with a visit to a museum etc.

I don’t succeed every Friday – but mostly! And not every friday experiment has a result that can be shown – but I hope that this blog can stimulate me to ”finish” more of these creative Friday experiments.

Below you will find a few old examples of the outcome of a creative friday…..
