Seed by Aixsponza
Seed is a free project made by Aixsponza. They started it to try out ideas and techniques. And to have an excuse for commiting to the craziest of all entries on the brainstorming flip chart. MAXON support projects like Seed with our software.
A big thumbs up to the crew who worked their fingers to the bone to pump out all the renderings.
Photoscanning of nearly all objects, Octane and Arnold rendering, Softimage ICE for a few shots, Houdini for a few others and heaps of Cinema4d for all of the rest gets the shells flying and glowing. Add a bit of WorldMachine for landscapes (and ZBrush and Modo for cleanup and retopo) and you’ve got our pipeline for this piece.
