McLin Digital Logo Animation

McLin Digital Logo Animation

3D logo animation using Maya and Adobe After Effects.

McLin Digital Logo Animation

The 3d model was created and animated in Autodesk Maya. After creating the model, I imported it into Adobe After Effects and spruced it up with some secondary animations. The transition to the white logo, and the ending text animation was done in After Effects.

LearnWake Logo Animation

I created this animation using Autodesk Maya, Adobe After Effects and Trapcode Particular.

LearnWake Logo Animation

I modeled, animated and rendered the 3d logo in Autodesk Maya. From there, I brought the animation into Adobe After Effects, where I swapped out the 3d logo for the full-color vector version, and added the saw blade animation.  I then applied some color-corrections, motion blurs, and fake reflections. The final step was adding the particles using the Trapcode Particular plugin.  Sound design by Nick Murray.

Wake Awards Logo Animation

This logo animation is part of a package that I created for WakeBoarding Magazine’s “Wake Awards” award show. First, I took the vector logo they provided me and created and animated a 3d version in Autodesk Maya. After that, I imported the animation into Adobe After Effects, where I applied color-correction, and the light flickering effect. Finally, I added several layers of smoke/fog into the scene using Trapcode Particular. Sound design by Nick Murray.

The animations in this clip are from The Book Wakeskate DVD series. I created all phases of the visual effects, including the 3d animations in Autodesk Maya. The clip below is a small sample of a ton of 3d work that I did throughout the project. Narration in this clip is performed by Aaron Reed.

Humanoid Board App

Flash App: Humanoid Boards

I used Flash to bring life to the product lineup for Humanoid Wakeboards. I also integrated all of the boards in 3d.

Flash App: Humanoid Boards

Flash was used exclusively for this web app.  I used Actionscript to bring all of the pieces together.  One of the more notable features is the dynamic rotating of the wakeboards. For this, I took CAD files that were provided by the client, and then imported them into Maya. Once in Maya, I skinned the boards with their graphics, and added special shaders and lights to make the boards look shiny when I animated them.
