Join Rob Garrott for an in-depth discussion in this video 038 Animating circular text 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. …Have you ever wanted to create animated 3D text on a circle but weren't quite sure how …to approach it? You could start with your text inside of Illustrator wrapped on a circle …and import that into Cinema 4D and extrude it, but that becomes very problematic for animation. …In this edition, I am going to show you how to get animated 3D text, using the MoGraph …tools in Cinema 4D, and just a little bit of XPresso. …Let's take a look. …Okay, here I am in Cinema 4D's Picture Viewer.…
I am going to hit Play. …We have got this Wood Plank Films type that comes in surrounding this clapboard, and you …can see that the letters are actually pointing in one direction as they land and then they flatten out. …There are also at a different spacing, you see the spacing between the letters is changing …as well, and I created this effect by putting the letters of the words on to a spline. …
