Robyn Haddow demonstrates how she creates Fantasy User Interface (FUI) elements using Cinema 4D’s MoGraph toolset. You’ll see how the Inheritance Effector and the X-Particles plugin combine to create a brain morph visualization. Next, using a project from Spider-Man: Homecoming, Robyn shows some techniques for creating a variety of nulls on the surface of an object, which she exports to Adobe After Effects and uses as 3D locators for 2D text elements or effects. Robyn builds out a “MoGraph Tech Sphere”, and shows the power of MoGraph Selection tags to art-direct changes to clone color and scale made by effectors. You’ll also see how the PolyFX deformer can add greeble effects on an object. Finally, Robyn shows how to create an orbiting telemetry visualization using the Cloner object’s Rate option.
