Colin Sebestyen of CCA and Academy of Art University presents at NAB on April 16, 2012

CINEMA 4D's sophisticated features help Colin Sebestyen realize a diverse range of stunning animations. See how he used L-Systems, and several other tools to build his impressive repertoire.

In this presentation, Colin demonstrates his use of CINEMA 4D Sweep NURBS in a music video project for Snoop Dogg. Next, he demonstrates ProjectionMan and Camera Mapping in a project he did for the Cut & Paste competition. Colin provides an extensive explanation of MoSpline's Turtle mode and L-Systems while demonstrating a live backdrop created for Miamisburg Color Guard. Finally, Colin briefly demonstrates how he used C4D content in Quartz Composer and VDMX to create a live 3D VJ-style presentation controlled through midi for the hip-hop music maestro Edison.
