Porsche Speed : Car Animation


#1

Hi peoples!

Finally I am allowing myself to post this on CGTalk.com :).

We made this film to showcase our CG abilities. We wanted to make the best showcase one can imagine for a new car. We chose the Porsche since we…just…like Porsches!

We storyboarded, previzzed, animated and rendered it all in house. Production took 4 weeks, rendering on a 8 core MacPro took 4 months non stop. All frames rendered at a minimum of 1 frame an hour, some took 24 hours per frame (the door opening took that long because of the blurry reflections). Everything was rendered in 1920x817 in Cinema4D. No Radiosity was used, only some area lights and a nice environment based on an EMC room.

Part 2 of this film is currently in production and is going to look even awesomer than this one :smiley: ! We plan on doing some sort of trilogy based around the awesomeness of the car.

This is the kind of stuff we want to do, create awesome films with a high production value that evoke a positive emotion.

Nice job:arteest:

i really doubt that if this was a real car ad that porche would accept this one!
for example the whole door scene is waaaayyy too long in my opinion!
i will give you ****:wavey:

Thanks kibo!

Thanks a lot for the constructive criticism! In my opinion this film is a bit on the slow side. I wanted it to feel like an introduction. Although, Pacing is so important, logical and natural but yet so hard to achieve if you start from scratch.

Thanks again!

WOw! Awesome work.

Talk about long render times. It’s a good thing that they paid off in the end.

Cheers!

Great work man, the car looks beautiful :slight_smile:

Very Amazing Rendering. And this will show very realistic environment. Rendering time takes more than the production time, it shows yours patience. Waiting for your next postings.


#12

#13

Frontpage stuff! Really cool. :applause:
5*

Thanks people!

The render engine is just standard Cinema4D raytracer with post DOF (also standard Cinema4D’s).

I like doing as much as possible with the base package since it just works the fastest and gives awesome results if you know what you are doing :).

Thanks again people! :beer: I’ll have to buy you all a beer!


#15

I thought you used Vray or something… especially nice for the standard AR (2?). :buttrock:


#16

i was thinking you were using vray for this too! Great to see some more awesome C4d work, keep it up guys!


#17

Very well done Shademaster …
realy wonderful work …
I like it :thumbsup:


#18

wow …
very very very good work …:applause:


#19

Haha thanks! AR can do some pretty amazing things if you do your post work well and tweak your rendersettings a bit.

I tried to simulate a 35mm camera as much as possible, the DOF distances combined with the simulated 35mm film camera lenzes gives the nice cinematic feeling I was after.

I used a lot of fixed lens types like a 50mm F1.8 for the wide turnaround (distance from lens to ground is what a film camera on a low bowl tripod and on a dolly will look like). I have some experience directing TV commercials and I tried to emulate as much as the ‘equipment’ needed to shoot something like this.

Our freelance cameraman was actually rather insulted that we didn’t hire him to shoot this LOL :D. We had to tell him a couple of times it was just 3D.

looks very good, 5stars! How do you achieve the chromatic aberration? I assume it’s done in post, true?

cheers
