old bicycles still ride

Hi guys
my brother have an old bicycle that could be restored.Leave to him "physical restoration",i'll do the "digital" part

Photobucket

no particular difficulties to model the bike,just to be patient..so no tricks or technique to show
i stayed on the screen to admire the clean surfaces and the cool metallic light that MOI can give
post some screenshots is not enough so i decided to make a 4 minutes-video to see better details and close-up
turn on full screen mode so on top right turn scaling-off- to have original size (1280x720)


old bicycles still ride from M-dynamics on Vimeo.

after modeled and rendered,a quick animation try to show the rod-brake system carried on the old bikes
so i had to insert the bike somewhere,create a location....
inspiration came from two old users that i consider "columns" of this forum:Frency Pilou and Burrman
it's my way to say thank you to them

Photobucket

all stuff modeled in MOI,included Chateau Lafitte's bottle and baguettes...this is "the recipe"

---Baguettes françaises à la Moi (in french sounds cool..)---

draw to splines(red and blue) and a circle in the middle,than move the points to flatten it to the base

Photobucket

sweep:circle like section,blue and red like rails

Photobucket

turn on control points of the sweep and select like in the photo

Photobucket

pull down selected points

Photobucket

...et-voilà:Moi's baguette !

Photobucket

----------------------

a phrase in a previous thread regarding a discussion between Burr and Mike caught my imagination
maybe this imagine could expresses the meaning..

Photobucket

of course modeled in Moi flip-flops and Burr's surfboard too..

----------------------

my apologizes to all serious users(pro-cnc-math..etc.) for this "surreal" thread:MOI is a work-instrument but also a pair of wings to fly...

Mauro

That is a great project.. Very nice modeling on the bike. The banquette I would not model in Moi but a subd modeler but that is up to you of course.

Which app did you use for the rendering? is this done with Modo?

Peae,
Rich_Art. ;-)

Merci! :) (Thanks) :)

Amazing! Bravo!

If you want be a real Frenchy you must add this for the trilogy to the handlebars! ;)

But not sure that will be confortable at this beginning spring! :D



And seems you must add a label to the bicycle :)

Some old but hyper known (in France) : Motobécane, Peugeot, Gitane
I have seen that it was a Legnano :) (Italian ? :)

Sweet Mauro!!! I like your style. The bread is a tasty morsel. I actually used to surf at hanauma bay when I was 6 or so....

thanks Mike...i got a bike for you too..i started to model but now i have to do something else...if i have time...


Thanks to all:
Yes...baguettes are sub-d stuff but for my scene they are not the main object,just an accesorie,so not required accurate modeling or texturing(...i don't have a good feeling with bodypaint)
so:why not with MOI?We have control points of the surface,make 3 splines and.."le jeux son faits"..quickly...
never forget main feature of MOI: selection!!Even ready,no need to open a pop-up window and then select point or edge or polygon then close and open another window to choose a tool
Thanks forever,Michael...what else...

In C4D i used Photomatch plug-in (vreel 3d) to catch the camera position(could be a good feature in MOI)
Render engine is Fryrender(randomcontrol) at the end of the video you can see last image with logos
Render an animation at 1920x1080(native size of my video) with an unbiased engine require too much time for my quad-core 3.2 so i choose to render 3 little images at less resolution
using a basic hdri environment and nothing else,to have low time computation,stills also rendered with FRY

I know typical stereotypes of Frency..in the video i could add an accordion sound on the image too...
Motobécane, Peugeot, Gitane are famous in Italy too but sorry:we have a better bike's tradition (don't want to hurt French pride...)
Legnano was an historical brand then absorbed by Bianchi

Photobucket

this is original label applied on the bikes but the warrior (Alberto da Giussano) is also the symbol of a party that ruled Italy in the last 10 years,hand in hand with mister B.
taking Italy on the edge of disaster..so:i refused to put that symbol on my imagine
better to put MOI bulb on the frame(see the front of the bike)

We all,Italians-French and Flemish,have great tradition in road bicycles and races (LeTour-Paris Roubaix-Giro d'Italia-Liegi Bastogne Liegi-Tour des Fiandres)
i'm a climber(a dream is to do the Mont Ventoux)...i had to model a bike...

Photobucket

...i know...my uncle did the Ventoux and the rest of classical climbs (Alp'd'Huez etc.)
bikers from all the world go there,all stuff better organize then Italian climbs (north-east Alps area )..le Tour is the best,give full popularity !
