Join EJ Hassenfratz for an in-depth discussion in this video Looking at the animation goal, part of Mograph Techniques: Mixing 2D and 3D with After Effects and Cinema 4D.
…In this course, we're going to go over ways to integrate…the new CINEWARE plugin, that was introduced with After Effects Creative…Cloud, into a 2D style workflow, by creating 3D assets…in CINEMA 4D that will composite seamlessly into your 3D animation.…Let's start by breaking down the animation, so we can get…a general overview of what we will be building in this course.…So it always helps to storyboard out what your animation goal is,…so you know which elements you can make in After Effects,…and which parts are best served making inside of CINEMA 4D.…
You can then plan on how to build each…element by using the strength of each piece of software.…So in this animation, all the main elements will be made in CINEMA…4D, Including, this pencil, the book, these…ribbons, and everything but the Mograph text…here, in the second part of our animation.…So these 3D elements include the cube background…here, our stars, and our globe, back here.…Where we will use After Effects is mostly…with all the secondary animation, such as, the…
- Adding materials, lights, and camera to a scene
- Using bend deformers
- Using the spline shader to add text
- Applying dynamics to text
- Importing CINEWARE layers into After Effects
