“Week in Motion” is a series of posts where we will cover a few motion design related events that occurred during the past week. These might be bigger posts/announcements you have heard, or some smaller things that slipped through the cracks. This week:

Krakatoa for Cinema 4D was announced.

ArtSmart v2 was released on Cineversity featuring some nice updates.

Ryan Summers posted Crazy Robo – Animation Test featuring some nice C4D animation and particles created in Photoshop.

Shader Effector for After Effects. SHADER EFFECTOR. AFTER EFFECTS.

Video Copilot released a new model pack for Element 3D: Future City Pack. Oh, it’s free.

Beeple just being awesome again. This time for The Glitch Mob’s Can’t Kill Us music video.

Greyscalegorilla has 40% off everything today only using code “40OFFGSG”

The Mac Pro is finally available for order, though you might have to wait until February or March to actually get one.

Slightly older, but Pantone announced on Dec. 5th that the color of 2014 is officially Radiant Orchid. (You can also view past colors of the year.)

What did you see happen this week?
