Microsoft Zune for TCP

Posted in 3D on December 25th, 2008 by sketchbookinc

zune_3zune_2I worked on this project for Mitch Morse over at The Code Project. He was working with Microsoft on some branding and asked for me to render out some elements for a presentation. We rendered these in Vray. Mitch provided skins for the shoes and the Zune concept, as well as some Zune branding elements to design out the van. We also rendered several packaging concepts not shown here. Scott Wilson, an accomplished industrial designer designed and modeled the Zune (not shown).

Microsoft Zune Animation for Nervo

Posted in Animation on December 16th, 2008 by sketchbookinc

nervo_zuneWe were responsible for the 3d animation of the Microsoft Zune in this spot for Nervo. We also rendered all the glass pieces. Nando Costa was the designer/animator for all the rest.

The image to the left was rendered at the beginning of the project. We were given the Zune model, and within about 2 hours had it cleaned up, textured, and rendered as shown. Almost an exact replica of the Zunes images we were given as reference.

We ended up scripting a custom reflection rig within cinema which allowed us so get the reflection just right throughout the animation. HDR’s were not cutting it.¬†All rendering was done in VRay.
