In the Manhattan project, IF used Sketch and Toon to create diagrammatic drawings, leveraging the Overshoot and Cloned Strokes options to make them look hand-drawn. The Contour line type also came in handy for topographic drawings. Jeremy also shows how they used Cineware to import 3D data from C4D into After Effects, so they could quickly change footage.

Jeremy also shows how to create a flag using Cloth simulation, and artistically control the simulation using a Surface Deformer.

In the SXSW Gaming Awards, Jeremy used C4D to create the look of classic games, using Xpresso to create rigs that represented Pong, a classic first-person shooter and an audio waveform.
