Although it sounds like total geekery magic to me, I simply tend to get my kicks out of automation in general.
Since he asked me to proofread the article, I offered him to create an image to illustrate the purpose.
An “all-white”, or clay render used to set up and study the lights. I always render this step even though it's unfinished, because it shows more clearly how the lights are working.
Plus, it usually looks cool.
Conveyer belts driving screenshots into cardboard boxes for delivery.
A nice hook hanging on a chain, shiny levers, cables, that's some heavy factory gear! Those buttons looking like macOS are just a coincidence, though. Or are they?
This painting bot was fully rigged in Cinema 4D, in case I'd need to animate it, one day…
Hope you liked it!
