Preset+Tutorial: C4D DoF Camera Rig

A program of choice to many motion artists, Cinema 4D has a rather counter-intuitive method of producing depth of field. Both the camera controls and the way in which C4D handles depth maps can be a cause of major headache, especially for the newcomers to this program.

With the coding support from German motion artist and art director Derya Ozturk, we have been able to construct an improved camera rig for Cinema 4D that should help you eliminate needless frustration, and get the results you need with just a few clicks.

ÅžÖlen: Bayram

This project was definitely one for the books. We were asked to create a 23 second ad for ÅžÖlen - a Turkish candy and chocolate company. We were given three weeks to produce a set of three videos (each for different product line) and the general guidelines regarding the current style used by the client's ads this season.

With the storyboards approved, we contacted Onur Senturk, whom you might know from his independent pieces such as Nokta or TRIâ–²NGLE. Onur took care of animating the ribbons, while I did the colors, particles, light fx and all that extra shiny-sparkly stuff. Leo Burnett - agency for this project - provided us with the 3D renders of the products and the audio track.
