CHARLIE COMPANIES shares BTS for NFL Network ID’S!

CHARLIE COMPANIES shows how they created their new NFL Network ID’s in this video below.  Using Cinema 4D, they seemed to have camera mapped a flat image (after cutting it up in Photoshop) onto 3D geometry and added a bone system for some slight movement.  The key to this technique is to not travel to far on an angle one way or the other, or you will start to see the imperfections of a flat image being wrapped around geometry.  Very well done, love the breakdown!
