Beyond Limits with Nodes

Eric Jordan keeps pushing the limits of what can be done with Yanobox Nodes. We previously covered Eric’s work on The People's Republic of Desire. More recently he has created the graphics, animations and visual effects for Beyond Limits. We sat down again with Eric to discuss what went into creating the motion graphics and how the After Effects plugin Nodes was used in the process.

What was the goal of the project?

Beyond Limits’ breakthrough technology takes a cognitive leap beyond conventional AI toward a human-like ability to perceive, understand, correlate, learn, teach, reason and solve problems faster than existing AI solutions.

The company reached out to me in an effort to help them translate the complex methods in which their AI engines operate, into something aesthetically beautiful.

Where does Nodes come into play?

I used Nodes to construct many of the 3D grid structures that underly the important scenes. Nodes was also used to create many of the textual grids that animate in key scenes to communicate the various types of data that the A.I. engine is gathering. Text grids in Nodes can easily be animated and rotated on their axis, making them easily controllable versus animating separate native text elements in After Effects. Additionally Nodes was used to construct a highly complex information tree of data layers for the Cognitive Reasoning Engine of the A.I. system.
Nodes is used to build and animate a grid scaffolding around an industrial factory.
A text matrix was built using nodes to create an informational core within the Beyond Limits A.I. Luminai engine.
An informational cyclone made up of text matrix nodes designed with Nodes animates as the camera rotates around the scene.
A complex ‘information tree’ was designed and animated using Nodes to represent the core A.I. cognitive reasoning engine - which shows the relationship of various levels of data points.
