My name is Ferenc Vincze, and I am a freelance animator and videographer. I was originally born and raised in Hungary, but am currently living in Germany. My profession is Agricultural Engineering, and I have made animations and short films since 2004.
I’ve learned communication technology and I have been working as a freelancer for 6 years. I made several broadcast designs for local television channels, produced experimental short films and 3D animations until I founded my own business called Rendered-frames.com, where I use iClone‘s animation suite, with motion capture, and Character Creator.
“I highly recommend Character Creator and iClone Motion LIVE for professionals and indies, because this software package has the best price/value ratio.” – Ferenc Vincze / 3D Animator

VIZARTS – Lab 1: Engaging Storytelling with Motion Capture
Animation Studios often capture actor performances inside plain canvases with the use of generic characters, making it difficult to visualize the final scene and make corrections if necessary. But thanks to iClone’s Motion LIVE system, production studios now have the power to immerse their performers into 3D environments in real-time, helping them get a sense of the atmosphere and demands that the project requires.
