Intimidated by 3D modeling packages? Dip a toe in the water with CINEMA 4D (C4D) Lite, a slimmed down version of CINEMA 4D included with After Effects CC. Motion graphics designer Angie Taylor shows you how to build a complete sequence in C4D Lite, progressing from initial object modeling, to animation, lighting, camera rigging, texturing, and final render. Plus, learn to animate text, create random movement with wiggle expressions, track cameras in live-action footage to add new 3D elements, and light your scene. Angie also round-trips the project files to After Effects for visual effects and color correction. With over 100 videos, this course allows you to explore almost every aspect of 3D motion graphics creation, within this accessible introductory tool.
As well as being able to create new CINEMA 4D files from within After Effects, you can also import existing CINEMA 4D files into your After Effects project. And that's what we're going to do here. We're in Chapter Two Start AEP going to double click in the project panel. And go into chapter 2 folder and select chapter 2 previewing c4d. Just double click that to bring it into the composition, or into the project rather. And then I can drag it onto the New Comp button to create a new composition from that file.
And you'll see that it applies the Cineware plugin to the file and that translate it into After Effects language if you like. And if you watch as I ram preview that you'll see that I can ram preview my Cinema 4D file directly in After Effects. So it's as easy as that importing a file. From Cinema 4D into After Effects.
