Commissioned by Havas Germany to develop 3D animations and visuals for their client Vorwerk, I was very excited to be able to contribute to this vast project.
100 % CGI from 3D shading the new Vorwerk Temial tea machine to simulating the tea brewing process, I delivered the assets from the very first beginning of the project to the product launch on 16th May 2018.
The Tea Machine
Dealing with CAD data from the client I refined them, remodeled a few parts of the machine for better closeups, shaded and defined lighting.
First steps while defining the style were rendered with Octane. For the production I then used Arnold.
Development – Hours and Hours of Tea Brewing
After several hours of tea brewing in my own kitchen, I developed textures and materials for the tea leaves according to real tea leaves provided by the client.
And this is what I came up with rendered in Cinema 4D and Octane:
The Fluid Simulation
The goal was to create realistic looking tea brewing process within the Temial tea machine. To achieve this I decided to build up the simulation within Realflow 10. Than imported in Cinema 4D I rendered it out with Arnold and post processed in AfterEffects.
