Robyn begins with a quick technique for creating a scan wipe effect, using the PolyFX deformer in conjuction with effectors weighted by a Random Effector.

Next, she demonstrates her technique for visualizing atomic interactions between Stein and Robbie in The Flash, using C4D's MoGraph module and Turbulence force object. She shows how the 3D data for each of the atoms can be exported to After Effects so 2D elements can be layered on top. She also shows how to create a similar effect with the Vibrate tag.

Next, Robyn shows several techniques for working with CAD and schematic data and rendering wireframes. She cleans up and simplifies CAD data using Combine Project, and uses a combination of Fresnel and the Cel Render to create wireframe visualizations. Robyn also shows how to generate wireframes using the Hair Render Engine.

Finally Robyn shows the use of the Fracture object and MoGraph effectors to dynamically reveal engineering and architectural schematics.
