Join EJ Hassenfratz for an in-depth discussion in this video Choosing the right version of CINEMA 4D, part of Mograph Techniques: Spline Dynamics with Cinema 4D.
Before we get into this course, let's talk about the different versions of Cinema 4D and which version you'll need to use this course. In this course, we'll cover two very useful features inside of Cinema 4D. Spline dynamics, which you can see here in this scene, which add string like movements to splines. In springs, which you can see here, which add dynamic spring effects, adding tension to objects so they're held up by a spring-like force.
If you're an After Effects Creative Cloud user, cinema 4D light is included. While this allows you to work with cinema 4D files inside of After Effects, many of its best features are not included. Specifically the dynamics module is not supported, and that includes both the springs and spline dynamics that I go over in this course. To be able to follow along in this course, you will need to have cinema 4D studio version r13 or above. If you're not a user of cinema 4D studio version, this course is not for you.
