Spline dynamics in CINEMA 4D provide a great way to add physics to splines to create hair, rope, cable, or string-like effects. This course shows how to use C4D's Dynamics module to create energetic animation and motion graphics with realistic motion and elasticity—perfect for bumpers or TV commercials. Learn how to use the spline dynamics tag to make objects react like they would to real-world physics, use constraints to connect splines to other objects, and create realistic tension with springs. EJ also shows how to animate and render your composite and polish the final footage in After Effects.
Hi, I'm EJ Hassenfratz, and welcome to Motion Graphics Techniques: Spline Dynamics. In this course, we'll look at how you can use Cinema 4D's dynamics module to create an energetic animation, with realistic motion and elasticity, that could be used for a broadcast TV network bumper. I'll start by showing you how you can use the spline dynamics tag to make a spline move, like a rope or cable, that reacts to real world physics.
Then, I'll show you how you can use constraints to connect the dynamic splines to other objects in the scene. We'll see how you can create realistic tension between two pieces of geometry by using spring objects. We'll be covering all these features, plus plenty of other tools and techniques. Now, let's get started with Motion Graphics Techniques: Spline Dynamics.
