Eugene Gonzales

Eugene is a master of the lesser-known features of 3D Invigorator PRO. In this example he gives 3D animation a 2D look. Modern designers call this un-shaded style the "Flat Look" and when done in 3D it's called "Flat 3D". 

In this job, Eugene has created a commercial for a bank using big bold colors rippling with 2D animation. The look is flat and very 2D. But when it's time for the money shot he brings in 3D Invigorator PRO and creates a neighborhood full of shops, people and houses.

3D Invigorator is ideal because Eugene does the layout in Adobe Illustrator and 3D Invigorator turns those Illustrator vectors into 3D objects with a minimum of fuss. No goofed up polygons, all holes and compound paths exactly as you made them. A couple of clicks to add depth, add the flat colors and you are ready to animate. 

Once things are set up you can do 3D camera moves and 3D animation to get perfect perspective rendering but with no shading, all colors are the simple flat design. A perfect blend of technology and art. 

Watch Eugene's animation.
