CHDS Augmented Reality

Filed under augmented reality, flash, 3D, xml, awesome

An experiment with Augmented Reality that forced me to sit down and learn this awesome Framework. An experiment that I am working on that incorporates augmented reality with the CHDS Viewpoints.

Creating the process and workflow was exciting and challenging. First I created the intro animation in Maya and Cinema4D and then exported it out in Collada (.dae) format.The main chunk of the work was done in Flex using the FLARtoolkit Papervision3D engines. Creating the lights (you can see that the collada model shaders are interacting with the light while you move the paper!!), shaders, and additional animation. I also was able to integrate the RSS feed for the Viewpoints and access not only the video but also the XML elements and metadata. I still have to optimize it for better framerates and work on using baked textures with the 3D model, but I thought you might get a kick out of it. Something about moving things in reality that really aren't there, is pretty cool in my book.

New Stop Motion Technique called Stratastencil

Always exploring ways to mimic real-life drawing techniques, I thought it would be a good time for me to experiment with this new technique called Stratastencil and mimic it in After Effects. View Project

Experimentation is not reserved just for College.

Harmony can be defined as different patterns, elements, and rhythms co-existing together to form a perfect union. When this is achieved in media, you are able to project emotions and thoughts that ordinary text and images could never dream to become.

As a graphic artist, I approach each project with the simple notion of allowing the elements to live and play with each other in perfect harmony.

Come experience the different mediums in which my creative expression and structural sophistication come together to cultivate and celebrate the wonderful world of human communication.
