As we explore to the render settings inside of Cinema Four D.…I want to explain that I've added some more elements in to our project, just so…you could see more clearly some of the…different settings and options that we'll be going through.…So to get started.…Let's look at our project.…You can see we have a composition, and our one Cinema Four D file.…And we actually have two cinema 4D layers that make up our project.…And, we actually have a 3D camera.…Now, when you're working inside a cinema, you'll want to make some…adjustments to the actual quality for the resolution of what you're looking at.…
So, for example, if I go to the effects control panel and I select my text layer…here, and I can see my cineware options, and notice I have renderer options.…The default renderer for this layer is the software renderer.…Now just so we can focus only on the text layer,…I'm going to turn off the visability of the background bars there.…Now the renderer is set to Software, and that's kind of the default setting.…
Author Ian Robinson walks through the basics of using C4D Lite and moving between C4D and After Effects. Learn to match your frame rates and project settings, create 3D type and other models, apply materials, add animation, and output your project for compositing in After Effects. Covering the basic linear workflow, this course is the perfect introduction for the experienced After Effects artist who's new to the C4D workflow.
