How to give a 3-dimensional feel to a new grinding machine that's built but not yet operational for a client's website? The answer is this 270° animation developed for Total Grinding Solutions CL-6020 for longtime client GCH Tools of Warren, MI.
Without giving away all the secret techniques that make it work, let me say that it's as easy as drawing a 270° arc on the shop floor, making a still photo every 6 inches around the arc, outlining each image and dropping them on a timeline to produce a short movie. And you have to move the lighting with you as move around the machine. The client was thrilled and I was exhausted.
