Quick Tip: Save IncreMental

Quick Tip: Save IncreMental

I just uploaded a one-minute tutorial to my Vimeo about making Save Incremental save your project with just one zero instead of three. Yeah, it’s dull, that’s why the tute’s like 30 seconds long without the intro/outro clips.
C4D, I've been seeing someone else...

C4D, I’ve been seeing someone else…

MAYA VS. CINEMA 4D I’ve been busy – trying to elicit more technical difficulty from Cinema 4D than my current work demands, I’ve drifted over to Maya and have been modelling and doing all kinds of things, to try to understand the key differences between Maya and Cinema 4D. All in all, I think I...

Cinema 4D Pro Tips: Tutorial 001: Rigging Gears and Pistons

Here’s the tutorial I made for my Youtube channel. I’ve uploaded it to Vimeo now to embed it with no nasties, recommendations of unrelated awful videos or advertising. Feel free to comment on the video over at Youtube or use the contacts form to request a tutorial if there’s something you think I can help...
My First Vray Arch-vis Render

My First Vray Arch-vis Render

Yeah, making fake rooms and then rendering them is dull, super-dull. Some people live for it. I think that’s weird. That’s why I tried and failed to make mine look like the scene of a murder or a burglary. I do find the amount of CG artists who never make animation quite staggering – they...
Cinema 4D r15 Aerodynamics Test

Cinema 4D r15 Aerodynamics Test

I know this is a little late in the game, but I only just got myself onto Cinema r15. The first thing I thought to make with the aerodynamics was floating feathers, leaves, scarves – anything that soft body dynamics alone was proving too hard to pull off. I know, I could just play around...

My New Youtube Channel: Cinema 4D Pro Tips

My New Youtube Channel: Cinema 4D Pro Tips

I have started a channel to upload some entertaining, extremely concise videos about the tricksy stuff we don’t get to see in C4D, freelancing advice, whatever I or my pro buddies feel like making a video about. I felt the need to, well, jump on the Youtube money wagon. The world’s biggest advertising company with...
I got work into the Palais de Tokyo!!

I got work into the Palais de Tokyo!!

Hooray for me: I’ve got some work being watched this very minute in the Palais de Tokyo in Paris. For those who don’t know, it’s a very grand old building directly over the river from the Eiffel Tower which houses a sushi restaurant and avant-garde art stuff, not to mention a highly amusant gift shop...
Hiatus? Already?

Hiatus? Already?

  Alas, it’s November already. I may be AFK on the animation side of things for the next six weeks. Actually, I hope that I’m away from animation for longer. Why? It’s Movember of course! Those scant few hairs I have on my upper lip aren’t going to coax themselves out of dormancy. I jest....
Minion My Minion

Minion My Minion

The progress on my Minion animation (video)… http://edmundbrown.tv/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/Edmin_SecondPass.mp4 So I still need to smooth out the animation on this one. I’ve done the breakdowns and timing’s pretty much in, but now I need to dramatise the thing. The ears should stick up and vibrate when he gets a shock, the legs aren’t doing what they...
Venus Penis Uranus (NSFW)

Venus Penis Uranus (NSFW)

If John Waters’ napkin doodles could move… This animation has been made way longer and more pointless. I might update it but hey, it’s a test. Better to move onto things that mean something, things worth finishing – and besides, I have stopped going to life drawing since the tutor starting charging an extra fiver...
