- In this movie I'm gonna use…a third party plugin to add motion blur…to our animation.…Because we've rendered out…a motion vector pass from CINEMA 4D…that stores all the motion information…we can then use it to apply accurate…motion blur to our scene.…We're gonna use the plugin Real Smart Motion Blur…to apply our motion blur.…If you have After Effects CC…you can use an alternate built-in plugin…called Pixel Motion Blur,…but I've found the results aren't as fast…or as good as the third party option I mentioned.…
So let's go ahead and the first thing…I wanna do is rename our sproing beauty 2com…to just sproing render so this'll be our rendering comp…and then I'm gonna create a ...…Let's select our composition here.…I'm gonna create a new adjustment layer…and this is what I will apply the motion blur…effect to so I'll just rename this…motion blur, so I'm gonna go to my effects…and get revision, plugins, real smart motion blur…and that'll apply it to our scene.…
So let me go and…get to a part that's really a lot of movement…
Author EJ Hassenfratz uses CINEMA 4D to extrude 3D text from Illustrator letterforms and animate the letters individually utilizing the very versatile Jiggle deformer, which applies fun, unique movements to each one. Then he adds bright, cheerful textures and lighting to the scene, and composites the final effect in After Effects, incorporating some finishing touches that will make your logo seem even more playful and expressive.
