Andri Viyono created this transformer for his work and shares the different stages of the project.
Hi everyone, i want to share my experience about creating a transformable character.
3 month ago, my Bos asked me to create a transformable character. I decided to use my previous 3d model, Honda Civic Estilo as an transformable character (you can download the car model here). I had been struggling for 2 week , searching for the references and techniques how to make this stuff. Here is the result:
Then, I tried to add that animation to a real video footage. I used Iphone 4S to took the video. Here it the result:
I showed that video to my Bos, and he asked me to improve the animation and color. I took another video using a better camera, Canon 5D . then I asked to my co-worker to help me animate the character and add a sound . We also did a minor Post procecing in Adobe After Effect (adding dust, final color grading). Here is the final result:
hope all you guys like it, and sorry for my English :)
