Dynex Hydraulics

→ Let's face it, hydraulic pumps might not be the sexiest thing in the world to market. Well, we don't back down from a challenge and excitedly jumped at the opportunity to work with Dynex on creating a showcase for their main product. The real challenge was simulating the actual pump mechanics; 4 pistons held in place by springs and a rotating wobble plate. Nothing you see in the pump animation is keyframed, but rather a complex dynamic simulation. This allowed us flexibility to speed up and reverse the pumping action, while freeing our workflow to easily animate camera moves and other assets.
