 NAB 2012 Rewind - Colin Sebestyen, Day 3: Procedural modeling & animation | File Type: video/mp4 | Duration: 42:15

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 how he used procedural materials, random effector as a deformer, basic Xpresso to create wolves for a piece entitled Futura Lobo for IDN Magazine.
