IM Innovations was the sponsor for the recent workshop organized by the Singapore Institute of Landscape Architect (SILA) at the National Design Centre on 14 August.
Entitled "Frontier Technology in Landscape Architecture", we demonstrated some modelling techniques in Cinema 4D and the seamless integration to architecture CAD software and Adobe After Effects, how you can easily create stills and animations, use physical sky, motion graphics features like cloner and the huge libraries of 3D scene fillers, textures, lighting environments, etc for architecture design visuali
zation. Architecture design firms like Gayarre Infografia use Cinema 4D for major projects for clients like Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, David Chipperfield and Jean Nouvel.
Our technology partner, Philip Paar from Laubwerk, shared more about how 3D Plants Kits, a plugin for both Cinema 4D and 3ds max, can be used for landscape artists looking for authentic 3D trees. With drag-and-drop simplicity, and easy-to-use tools that modify the shape, age, season and level of detail for each of Laubwerk's stunning 3D plants, users can seamlessly add 3D trees to any CG project. Another new Laubwerk plugin for creating landscape scenes is SurfaceSPREAD - this is only available in Cinema 4D.
