Join Rob Garrott for an in-depth discussion in this video Compositing 3D text, part of CINEMA 4D: Rendering Motion Graphics for After Effects.
Our Type Pass is going to be very simple to set up.…The great thing about having it as a separate pass is that if we decide later…on we need it to say something different, then it's really simple to change the type out.…We'll only need to render that type pass out and not the whole stadium, and…that's really what this is about is creating versatility in your composition…inside of After Effects.…Very often, you'll get an assignment and the title for the job will…change halfway through.…And by building your piece in a modular way like this, it makes it really easy…to change that type out.…You can say, hey, no problem, I'll change the type out, and you can do it really…quickly without having to go all the way back to CINEMA 4D and rendering out…every single piece of your project again.…
You can only render the type, and you'll be good to go.…I am going to start off in this file by going into the Video folder and in the…CINEMA 4D Imports, I'm going into the Type Pass. I've got this composition here…
