I hope you enjoyed this course, and others in the After Effects Guru series.

As such, we're going to assume that you have a basic working knowledge of After Effects and you feel comfortable with a lot of the core features. With these courses, we'll take a look at some of the more advanced options, as well as some of the overlooked techniques that often fall through the cracks.

After Effects Guru helps you dig deep into advanced After Effects options and techniques. This first installment focuses on the new CINEMA 4D (C4D) Lite plugin—a slimmed down version of MAXON's 3D modeling program offered with After Effects CC—and the exciting ways the two programs integrate.

Author Ian Robinson walks through the basics of using C4D Lite and moving between C4D and After Effects. Learn to match your frame rates and project settings, create 3D type and other models, apply materials, add animation, and output your project for compositing in After Effects. Covering the basic linear workflow, this course is the perfect introduction for the experienced After Effects artist who's new to the C4D workflow.
