Gather 'round campers and take a gander at what MEISTER cooked up at our 2018 animation jam. We're showcasing a handful of motion tests developed for a larger piece. Built and rigged in C4D, simulated in Houdini, rendered in Octane. Built to push VFX pipelines and stretch some 3D muscles.

The models were 3D scans from a Natural History Museum which we cleaned and rigged for the scenes.

Running alembic file simulations through an Octane shader we found some interesting results.
