Michael starts with a couple of tips for creating data readouts around a city using PolyFX, Cloner and MoGraph effectors.

Next, he demonstrates how to utilize Cinema 4D's Camera Calibrator and Camera Mapping to transform a 2D photograph into a complete 3D scene. Michael uses the CV-PlaneSmart plugin to quickly import Photoshop files into his C4D scene, which he uses to patch the projection. He also uses MoGraph to quickly add windows onto the building for his wireframe pass.

Michael also shows a technique for visualizing a shockwave using a spotlight with a colored edge falloff.

Finally, Michael reveals how the project all comes together via compositing in After Effects.
