We had to create a realistic moving inflatable tube man with energy for Chinese product "Move Free" for their social media advertising.
It was tricky to get the air flowing through correctly and took a lot of experimenting with velocity, density to get this looking correct.
We used Maya's dynamic simulations with nCloth. We also had to direct the air with simulated fans, and animate the rate and which things flowed to get them to fold then raise like this.
Our client "Name and name" is based in Taiwan, but working with them is easy like they were here in the UK
