Animation Vs Illustration: Layer Tennis Match 43 Comments


UPDATE: I just finished the match and I had a blast! You can check out all the volleys here.

I will be battling awesome designer and illustrator, Aaron Scamihorn to start the new season of Layer Tennis. I played a match of Layer Tennis last year when I was at Digital Kitchen and had a blast. Hope to see you all there today. Talk trash or give my hi fives on twitter by adding the #lyt hash tag to your tweets.

    • lookin for a “live” link or something but can’t find it… hopefully it will pop up come show time.

    • then again, i’ve never been to this site so the solution may be the most obvious. I’m assuming it has something to do with the “view match” links over there to the right XD

    • I’m new too, but I think you can click on the match you’d like to watch and look for the “Intro” “1″ “2″ “3″ (and so on) links under the banner graphic for that match. We get to see each layer but only a still image, I think. If anyone knows how to see video of this match, holla

    • Ryanfyffe is right its not a “live Stream” video pur-se. You have to wait until each artist uploads their work up and it becomes available.

  9. Great session Nick. Did you model that button? I’d love to get my hands on it. Or a tutorial.

    Reply
    • Wow, sorry. I am new to c4d and modeling. But way to make me feel inferior for trying to learn something.

    • The button was made with primitives except for the front, which was made my squishing a sphere and cutting it in half.

  12. OFF TOPIC QUESTIONS:
    maybe someone can answer…

    is it possible to get a soundfile into mograph dynamics? can c4d play a sound at collision events?

    and: can a soundfile be modified by c4d while related to objects that have different distances? example: an explosion in the front is louder than an explosion in the back …

    are there any tutorials? would be great!

      I guess you will have to use a spline mask on the sphere which is above an inside I dont know :) Just guessing.
      Good one though.

      Reply
    • Looks like just wrapped up spheres for the first one. And some deformed spheres for the abstract looking stuff. I have an “abstract” tutorial from last year that might be helpful.
