Join Rob Garrott for an in-depth discussion in this video 015 Creating bouncing animated type using dynamics, part of Design in Motion.
Hi Rob Garrott here,…and welcome to Design in Motion, the weekly series where we explore important…fundamentals in the world of motion graphics.…Dynamic simulations allow animators to get physically correct movement without…using any keyframes.…But just like setting up a string of dominoes it can be very difficult to control.…I am going to show you a really simple dynamic setup that you can use to get…some interesting type animations. Let's take a look.…This is the effect that we are going to create in CINEMA 4D. Let me hit Play…here and let this go through.…
So what's happening here is I have an invisible object off camera that is…rolling down a ramp and striking the type, causing it to jump off camera.…And this is a great effect that could be used as part of the graphics package…for example and a transitional element to get you from type to type.…Now the key to setting up this effect is building the dynamics correctly and…that's what we are going to do right now.…So I am going to switch over to the starting file and I just happen to have that already open.…
