VFX Breakdowns from SLGH
We got mail again from a happy client - and this time with some impressive VFX breakdowns attached.
My name is Lars Wemmje and I work as Digital Artist at Slaughterhouse Visual Manufacturing GmbH in Hamburg. More precisely, I work as 3D- und 2D Generalist and work with Maya, VRay, ZBrush, Cinema 4D, AE, PS, Mocha Pro and of course MochaImport+ ;-)
Slaughterhouse is a German post production house for all visual media with a focus on commercials.
We have offices in Berlin and Hamburg.
Work with MochaImport+ for AE
MochaImport+ is a very important tool for me. It's as indispensable as my Wacom pen - I simply cannot work without it.
We make lots of retouching and often need to integrate 2D or 3D elements in a scene or do object removals. For me, MochaImport+ is by far the best tool available for this kind of work! It makes my work fast and effective.
This Breakdown Video shows some parts of my work done with MochaImport+ The last example in the video shows a Mercedes AMG for which I had to replace the rims.
This shot was one of the most complex I ever had to work on. I was not sure from the beginning whether the MochaImport+ workflow would do the trick here, but it did.
Here is a short explanation how I solved the shot:
I tracked the right side of the car in mocha Pro and created a stabilized precomp with MochaImport+ in AE. As the rim was not moving anymore in the precomp, I could easily replace and animate the rims with new ones which I rendered in a 3D program.
The tool already saved my day many times. It shows that you can do more than you think you could - you just have to try.
Sounds like a stupid saying, but its true ;-)
Kudos to Dr.-Ing. Mathias Möhl for developping this software. I hope he is coming up with some more tools in the future.
Thanks a lot for the letter Lars! Concerning the new tools in the future: I see something on the horizon - maybe coming in June :-)
