“I wish I could just push a button and automate that…”
Big studios have in-house full-time TEchnical Directors and programmers to build custom tools, plugins and scripts to automate and connect things. But this is generally out of reach of small studios and freelancers.
As well as decades of 3D/Motion Graphics experience, I also have a strong background of experience and training in programming. I can build tools, plugins and scripts for Houdini, Cinema 4D and almost all Adobe products.
Applications - Houdini, Cinema 4D, After Effects, Premiere, Photoshop, Illustrator
SHADER DEV - redshift, arnold, substance designer, renderman
Languages - Python, Javascript, Vex
Operating Systems - Windows, OSX, Linux
for a custom tool, just reach out with a rough outline of what you want the tool to do, and we can go from there.
Super Mask is a Cinema 4D plugin that adds a custom tag. The tag creates a shot mask with customisable text fields for the Cinema 4D viewport.
Super Mask allows customisation of colour, fonts, font size and a watermark or branding image.
Application - Cinema 4d
Coding - Python
Good Guides
Good guides is an after effects script panel that allows quick selection (and un-selection) of a range of commonly used guide setups
application - adobe after effects
coding - javascript (ExtendScript)
Text in houdini is pretty basic and not very motion graphics friuendly. Supertext is a Houdini HDA that bundles all the standard motion graphics type needs, like extrusions and bevels as well as cleans up the font geometry. It can even take a vector file or curves as an input instead of a font or caN BE FED point attributes to generate the text.
Application - Houdini
coding - VEX
