"Inspired by MoGraph's new MoDynamics and the excellent possibilities offered by CINEMA 4D's XPresso and C.O.F.F.E.E. for creating complex setups we created the film 'No Keyframes', which is based entirely on automated setups. Each scene represents a specific functionality, which in itself generates interesting effects. The film shows spheres as they travel through various environments, interacting with elements in these environments and causing different reactions in each of them. Contrary to the approach taken in classic keyframe animation it was important to us to create self-sustaining models whose behavior was controlled by the rules of physics, similar to a real-world physical environment. The results often surprised even us. This film includes a wide spectrum of CINEMA 4D features, which are combined to make the resulting effects even more complex and interesting."
