The Italian Songbook project is a “Cultural Soundscape” conceived and created by Director Antonio (Tonino) Pappano Riccio.
The aim of The Italian Songbook project is to revitalise an older taste of our ancestors to celebrate the eternal and powerful aspects of song, within a context that suits our own modern sentiments. It is your guide and companion as you embrace the beauty of vocal and orchestral art.
It was a pleasure to create an animation for the Antonio Pappano’s project using my Realmagazine preset for Cinema 4D. Click the link below to visit the project page:
Testing Realmagazine preset for Cinema 4D with R21 and Prorender.
After creating the Realbook preset for C4D, perfect for creating and animating a book, I received several messages asking me to create a preset for newspapers, magazines and notebooks.
The substantial difference lies in the form of the sheets. While in the Realbook each sheet starts from the spine and contains two pages, in the Realmagazine (this is the name of the new preset) the sheets are folded and each of them can contain other sheets inside, as in reality. This is the substantial difference that appears to the eye, but there are others that make this preset more powerful. Powerful because it allows much more control in terms of configurations and possible animations. To manage this power and be able to express it as much as possible, it will be necessary to make a greater effort to understand how it works.
Below you can see some sample videos that partially illustrate its potential.
Also I could not resist the temptation to use a C4D content browser scene, created by the extraordinary Raphael Rau, to get the renderings you find at the end of the post.
