In this NAB 2017 Presentation, you'll see how Brett Morris of Ranger & Fox created procedural glass panes for a Cineversity logo animation. You'll see how a basic logo form can be stylized using a Displacer Deformer and Polygon Reduction. The resulting polygons are then split into separate objects, and their axes aligned using the Axis Center tool. Next Brett shows how to create a procedural rig using Voronoi Fracture and stacked deformers. Finally, you'll learn some tricks for navigating the Object Manager hierarchy and replacing objects, and see how to complete the animation with MoGraph effectors and spline-based falloff.
