Join Rob Garrott for an in-depth discussion in this video 028 Creating a simple car animation using splines, 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.…Now a spline is simply a path in the 3D world.…They can be drawn in many different ways and they come in any shape or size.…They are crucial tool in modeling and animation.…I am going to show you how to animate a very simple car chase using splines in CINEMA 4D. Let's take a look!…So this is the starting file in CINEMA 4D and what I want to create is a little…two car chase scene,…that is going to come down this main street and turn right at this intersection…and head off into the distance.…
I have a camera move already set up.…Let's look through it real quick so you can see what the camera is going to be looking at.…And you can see that it's going to start off--our cars are going to come from…this direction and then turn right at this corner and then head off in to the…distance, just down the street like that.…So the first step in this process is to draw the path that I want the car to follow.…
