I worked in Moment Factory on Tree of Light, a mapping performance on London (Ontario) for World Figure Skating Championships.
I was responsible for diferent 3d transitions:
00:25 Panels rotations with TP
00:30 Crumble with TP and my tool “Radius Effector”
00:59 Big rotation with standard 3dsmax tools.
1:17 Cloth falling, with standard 3dsmax cloth
We use a lot the uv mapping technique explained here so we can make adjustments on timing after the 3d is done without rerendering it.
It was a big teamwork, incredible people makes a huge different in Moment Factory.
