The Apple Watch 3D Model that wasn’t released

 

Developed in August 2015 but never released.  Why? Apple never made the San Francisco system font available to other applications (system only) and the fonts are only available to those who have an Apple Developer account. Furthermore, developers could only use it for interface “mock ups” (although this model might qualify).  The Mickey Mouse watch face would have never been included because it  is © (and trademarked) by the Walt Disney Company… probably forever.

This model’s features:
built in clock display (which runs fast – it’s just a demo)
front “glass”
animatable position/rotation parameters
animatable dial/crown rotation
animatable button
drop zone w/Pan and Scale parameters
drop zone position and rotation parameters to animate turn effect
clock position and scale (in case of repairs!)
glass reflection intensity control

I developed a generator to go with this model:

which is a frame accurate, settable and customizable watch.

The second half of this watch demo (the activity monitor) was another generator I created for the watch drop zone (also not released).

The state of this watch model/Motion template is in limbo.

I may develop the text font for this clock myself when (or if) I have the time as a substitute to the required version of San Francisco used in its making.

What makes me bring this topic up now is that there is a free Apple Watch Motion real 3D model recently released available on the FCP.co website here:

by Pielle (his board username). As a nearly fanatical advocate for “real 3D” using Apple Motion I’d like to call it to your attention. It’s a beautifully done work and worth the download. I would caution you not to use Mickey, though, in any commercial work!
