Filming withD2 for the IronmanBolton2013. Sports Pursuit commissioned us to follow a handful of contestants as they took part in this 140 mile beast of a triathlon. Above is the edit put together by the D2 guys. It was an enjoyable weekend, not sure Ill be taking part in any events like this too soon however..
Here’s some initial test renders created while developing an ident for the Nottingham based company Upper Cut Productions. They specialise in aerial photography.
I wanted to try out the Element3D plugin for After effects, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to learn and test it. The above video is some examples I played with to see how the plugin performed… basically I think its a amazing, to create something like this in 3DSMax would have taken me ages.. mainly due to rendering times. The great thing about Element is that its all GPU rendered, so its super duper fast. It does have its limitations but for this kind of stuff its revolutionary.
Been wanting to get some custom stickers made for some time. With the help of Alex, we put these together. After trying a few variations we ended up deciding on using the image I made of the logo using tiny electronic parts (more on how that was done here). As well as the main image we also used up the remaining space for another sticker. Two stickers for the price of one :). They were made by Awesome Merchandise.
I have a Zenmuse H3-2D Gimbal on its way (very excited) which will hopefully make the footage captured super stable, but in the mean time I found this a cheap and effective mod minimizes the horrible jello/ vibration effect.
