Title Design: Challenging Art

Opening sequences spark curiosity and give a glimpse of what to expect. Raoul Marks does this masterfully and his primary tool is Cinema 4D.

First, the appetizer: the opening sequence. Opening sequences are not only used by movies and television series to entice viewers – design conferences worldwide also use opening sequences created by well-known motion graphics artists. Artists also see this as an opportunity to explore many of their own creative and more experimental ideas in these projects. When Semi-Permanent contacted Raoul about creating an opener for the Semi-Permanent Conference 2015, Raoul was instantly onboard. “I was very excited to take a month off my usual work to tackle something new. It was a great opportunity to explore some new techniques and images I’d had floating around in my head,” remembers Raoul.

A photographic series from a 1968 issue of LIFE magazine gave Raoul the inspiration for the opening sequence: an astronaut falling through the darkness of outer space. This together with Raoul’s interest in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey were some of the key influences for the titles. “2001 has a stunning ability to hint at something surreal, something undefinable. I’ve always responded to that unnerving feeling in films and loved the awe it was able to evoke. I’ve found myself revisiting 2001 every few years and it always seems to offer up some new form of inspiration.” determined Raoul.

Virtual Upholstery with Cinema 4D and Octane

Artist, visualization specialist and trainer Christoph Schindelar uses customized workflows in Cinema 4D to create challenging visualizations of interior furnishings.

Two things are important for Christoph when working: flexibility and speed. Flexibility is provided by Cinema 4D, whose straight-forward use serves as an uncompromising basis for his workflows. Speed is achieved during rendering with various plugins and third-party applications that are optimized for use with Cinema 4D.

When a client tasked him with creating visualizations for 360 sofas in 60 different virtual showrooms, Christoph immediately started developing a fitting workflow with Cinema 4D, which would let him deliver the desired results on time and within budget.
The basic showroom scenes were created in Cinema 4D and filled with objects obtained from 3D model suppliers. Other elements that weren’t available for purchase were modeled according to reference images using photo modeler.

The focus of the project was the furniture that had to be presented in the showrooms. Christoph used Cinema 4D’s Cloth Simulation feature to cover a standard framework with the respective upholstery. The Cloth Simulation feature works so precisely that the upholstery was automatically fitted correctly, including folds in the cloth. Cinema 4D’s sculpting tools were then used to fine-tune the sofas stitching and other details.

Some of you might have noticed a change in the member list, in the number of members to be precise - I booted 43 different deactivated accounts today...  Next I am going to go through the gallery and remove all "deviation in storage" deviations.

Thank you for adding my work into your Featured-Gallery :)

You really can submit just 3 works a week here in this group?
Sorry, but if I would be so lazy, I can't even buy a new workstation.

I think I have to leave this group the, but I wait for answer first, maybe the rules changes.

Greetings, Niko!

This was agreed upon by a vast majority of group members in a poll.  There are some groups out there that don't do this yes, but oftentimes people abuse this by uploading a virtual diarrhea of submissions which detracts from the quality of the images.  By limiting the weekly submissions this has made people have to think about what they will submit and thus increasing the quality of submissions.  If you take a look at some of the other 3D groups on here you will find great images yes, but you often have to sift through all that diarrhea lol ;) The group membership literally swelled after this, making this the largest Cinema 4D group on DeviantArt.

If this is the reason you feel you have to leave then I will be sorry to see you go, but the ruling will stand.

Thanks for you answer!
In the other groups where I am, there is the limitation of 1 picture a day.
I was a little hasty. You are right, three a week should be enough.

Thanks again for your quick replay!

Hello! I'm assuming this group has pretty high standarts for 3D art , Are .. less-experienced artists allowed to post here?
2753Productions Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
Only members are allowed to post, however all that is required to join is to own Cinema 4D and have Cinema 4D renders in your DA Gallery.  You should join :)
