Oliver Higgins created this animation using Vectorworks and CINEMA 4D as his final University study project in Architecture.

"As my project was focused on how the role of digital tools are shaping the way we design, I decided to produce an animation based on a digital version of this exhibition space," said Oliver.

"The camera pans around the exhibition stand as if someone was looking at it. As the camera stops, the image comes to life giving the viewer a type of augmented reality."

"Vectorworks was used firstly to create a huge digital model of the City of Nottingham, UK. Each individual building was given a height via simple extrude. The terrain was created by using Vectorworks' Terrain Model tool. This was taken into CINEMA 4D and smoothed using a combination of HyperHURBS and manual manipulation."

"From this point, a much more detailed model was created in Vectorworks of the area surrounding the new buildings site. Planning Elevations were traced over and extruded to create a card model effect of the buildings."

"The detailed building model was then created and taken into CINEMA 4D for texturing, lighting and animating. As the building focused on views out into the city, CINEMA 4D's Xref function was used to pull in the huge city model and frame the views out of the windows."

"The final shot shows a section of the building cut away using Vectorworks' 3D Section tool and then textured and rendered in CINEMA 4D."

"I suppose this animation shows many different techniques and tools from both Vectorworks and CINEMA 4D. The robustness and interface between the two softwares was key to producing this animation. For this reason it is the only 3D softwares we use at my current workplace."

"You can see more of the work we produce using Vectorworks and CINEMA 4D below."
