Learn about how to achieve a flat, 2D, cartoon look in Cinema 4D.
- [Narrator] I've got 05013D04C4D open here,…and if you want to follow along…you can open that file too if you have access…to the exercise files.…And here we see we have a starting point…for one of the scenes in my 3D section…for the advert.…I want to talk a little bit about how this was put together…and also about how I created the kind of…cartoon style shading for this animation,…which makes it match in really well with the 2D…elements that I've made in After Effects.…
So you'll see here I've built a basic shape for the bus…and I've also created some clouds.…I just want to show you quickly how those were made.…You'll see here I just got a series of spheres…and here are the spheres here.…And then I've added to these, a metaball object.…So basically, the metaball object contains a null,…which has a series of spheres in it.…And when that's switched on, it creates this kind of…smooth wrap around the spheres…and there's various different ways of controlling that…if we go to the attributes manager.…
You'll see you've got subdivision and hull values…
In this course, learn about the most important principles of composition and how to use them in your designs. Instructor Angie Taylor puts these principles in context by taking you though the development of an online advertisement, and showcasing the different techniques used throughout her workflow. She demonstrates how to capture colors, patterns, and shapes using the Adobe Capture app; develop your rough ideas into layers that are ready for animating; compose design elements in After Effects; and create 3D artwork with Cinema 4D and After Effects.
