I don’t practice using the MoGraph module enough, and this video proves it.

We start this video on a critical note as I realize that I’m still not happy with the instrumentation cluster on the front of the machine.

At the end of the video, there’s a test render with some simple Global Illumination.

Covered in this video:

  • First, we prune the remnants of the handlebars.
  • At the 7:45 minute mark, we create an array of IR illumination lights (that are red for dramatic effect) and we construct them using a simple cube and some deformers.
  • You can see me struggle to remember how the heck the MoGraph cloner works. If you’d like to see me struggle with that, skip to 17:00, sit back and have a good laugh šŸ™‚
  • We create a couple simple cylinders that have rudimentary lens elements in them. These are a part of some sort of vision system.
  • The rendering and render setup happens at about 28:18
