NEWBURY PARK, CA — Cineversity, the education and resource Website from Maxon Computer, Inc., for Cinema 4D users, has released the “Perception Guide to Fictional User Interface (FUI),” a comprehensive tutorial series designed to help CG artists learn the technical aspects of creating futuristic motion graphics imagery. The series was created by Perception, the New York City-based motion graphics studio best known for providing high-end visual effects with an emphasis on futuristic UI and HUD designs.
The studio’s credits include work on The Avengers, Captain America: Civil War, Captain America: The Winter Solider, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Iron Man 2, Iron Man 3, and The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Perception’s vision of the future also extends to digital concept and product design for big names in technology, including Microsoft Hololens, Samsung, Mercedes Benz and SpaceX.
“Cinema 4D’s designer friendly interface and powerful toolset make it an ideal environment for creating dynamic UX,” explains Paul Babb, president/CEO Maxon US. “We’ve given our customers the tools. Now, with the help of Perception we’re able to provide a comprehensive tutorial series designed to teach Cinema 4D artists the technical and creative aspects of designing motion graphics for fictional and nonfictional UX. We’re thrilled they have generously shared their cutting-edge tips and techniques.”
“Whether developing a UI for a superhero, an emerging technology, or a record-breaking hypercar, the robust animation tools and flexible rendering options in Cinema 4D and its powerful After Effects integration continue to be indispensable in helping us visualize the future of technology,” says John LePore, chief creative, Perception. “We’re thrilled to prepare this in-depth tutorial series for the Maxon Cineversity community to show how Cinema 4D can empower artists to quickly experiment and conceptualize futuristic design concepts in three dimensions with the greatest of ease.”
The “Perception Guide to FUI” tutorial series was developed by LePore along with fellow studio artists Russ Gautier, Doug Appleton and Justin Molush. Each addressed a different technique in the tutorial series.
