The animation above was created by me, as part of The Quintek Group, for General Motors to showcase the Chevrolet Colorado ZH2 Hydrogen Fuel Cell mechanical and technological propulsion features. It was created using Maxon Cinema 4D, Adobe After Effects, and Element 3D.
General Motors supplied much of the 3D math data, which was translated and remodeled for use in the final animation. From there, the environment was created and the vehicle was lit and animated. The final look was to feel as if the viewer was getting an "augmented" view of the technology holographically.
Below are several earlier still-image versions of the system that show the fuel cell rendered with the main materials for client approval.
