Here’s a fun little product animation gig I was brought on for – this was for the release of Poppi Cosmetics’ first ever palette, Neon Drip
This was the main product animation I created:
I had a lot of fun with these textures, creating specularity on the drops but not the rest of the packaging, embossing the logo, making the brand logo metallic, the whole nine yards.
I followed this tutorial to figure out the spec maps in Arnold, and I am super grateful for it
I actually created this by rendering the palette on a green screen, which I’ve made a tutorial about here if you’d like to see it in depth!
Next, I created a promo animation (which was actually released before the product animation):
I did this using green screens as well, then I finished the video up in Aftereffects
I animated the package tearing using lattice deformers in Maya
Finally, while I’m at it, I also created this as a promo video:
It’s meant to loop forever on Instagram, so it’s seamless
My client then changed her mind about the plot/theme of the promo video, and decided to go with the above promo video instead.
I created this video using Aftereffects as well, although the boombox itself is a 3D model, rendered on a single still
That about sums it up for this project! I learned a lot about texturing and I was really happy with the final results 🙂
