Ocean Water Test - HOT4MAX by David Mackenzie

Hot4Max Render Test

So a little while ago I wrote a quick article about a plugin I purchased called HOT4MAX . Long story short, this a very short render test of the plugin. I put the test together in about an hour, as you can no doubt tell by the camera animation. I can report, that the plugin really does work well. I have been very impressed with it. For the record I rendered the shot with V-Ray and comped it in Fusion.


If I get a chance in the next few weeks I will do another test with water spray and some interaction with the surface. I am interested to see how far I can push it as I have a couple shots in mind that I would like to put together.

If you need to do some ocean shots or renders then I highly recommend HOT4MAX. You can get the plugin here.

3ds max Peeling Paint by David Mackenzie

This was a very quick test a did some time ago. I client wanted to see some example of car animation so I quickly knocked these out. The peeling effect was kind of cool and something that I would like to revisit one day. It was achieved with a bit of scripting and using the path deform modifier given the time frame that is done in I was reasonably happy with the results. 

The below test was really just to test some camera moves and animation.

Both clips were rendered using Mental Ray in 3ds max. The render times were very quick only 1-3mins per frame. Overall the the clips were turned around in about 2 days. In anyone would like a tutorial on how achieve the effect then please let me know!

Cheers,

Dave
