Mograph Techniques: Modeling and Animating with C4D Cloners

Viewers: in countries Watching now:

In this installment of Mograph Techniques, Ian Robinson shows you how to model and animate a stylized 3D flower that grows and blooms over time, using the combined power of CINEMA 4D and Adobe After Effects. You'll start by creating a single flower petal with traditional polygonal modeling techniques. Then you'll load the petal into a cloner object, and nest that cloner inside another, resulting in a complete flower with multiple levels of control for animation. The second phase is animating the cloners and refining the animation with the Step Effector. In the third and final phase, you'll bring the project into After Effects to add animated color effects, transitions, text, and shadows.

Topics include:
  • Modeling flower petals in C4D
  • Creating shaded materials in C4D
  • Building flowers with multiple cloner objects
  • Building a dynamic transition with camera animation
  • Multipass Rendering out of CINEMA 4D
  • Adding and animating color effects in After Effects
  • Refining transitions
  • Rendering the final composite

Using challenges

This course includes a video called a Challenge. A challenge is a quick activity to give you a hands on opportunity to practice and master what you've been learning. I'll start the challenge, by describing your core objectives for the activity. If the challenge involves any sample files, I'll tell you where to find them. I'll also give you a rough estimate, as to how much time it took me to complete the challenge. When you've completed a challenge, make sure to click the matching solution video. In each solution, I will show you how I solved the challenge and give you some of my thoughts along the way.

Again this is an opportunity for you to master what you are learning so, I hope you have fun with it.
