Join Rob Garrott for an in-depth discussion in this video 017 Shading type using gradients in Cinema 4D, 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.…Creating beautiful type and logo animations is all about style and the gradient…is a stylish design tool.…I am going to show you how to use gradients to make your type look great in CINEMA 4D.…Let's take a look.…So here we are CINEMA 4D and we are looking at the finished product of what we…are going to be creating today, and what I want to point out is the change in…value on the face of the type.…You'll notice that the type goes a lighter orange color to a darker orange color…from the top of the letter to the bottom of the letter.…
Anytime you hear the word gradient it simply means a change in value.…In this case we're changing in value from one color to another.…Now this change in value is going to be easy to create using a gradient, but we…have to do some key steps first.…So let's move over to the starting file.…I've got a clean version of this type with nothing on it.…
