Lenovo Yoga 11S
Two full-CG spots for Lenovo's Yoga 11S Laptop. I rigged the laptop for animation, built an 'echo rig' tool in 3ds Max using PFlow Data operators, and composited the final renders in Fusion.

A breakdown of SHT02. As the compositor I also developed a few tools for auto-importing EXR passes and creating wireless links to pipe in extra EXR passes where necessary in the flow.
The animation rig features procedural 'echoes' as well as an animatable pivot for complex mechanical movements. The rig was built to replace a preexisting echo maxscript I had written which used duplicate objects and offset keyframes. The old method was functional but required the animator to constantly bake out the echoes to adjust their timing or spacing. This new rig was designed to be animator friendly and allow full control over the echo look in real-time using Pflow Box#3
