Create 3D objects in CINEMA 4D and seamlessly composite them inside a 2D project in After Effects, using the CINEWARE plugin.
- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm EJ Hassenfratz and welcome to Motion Graphics Techniques: Mixing After Effects and CINEMA 4D. In this course, we'll look at how you can leverage Cinema 4D to create 2D style elements to mix seamlessly into a 2D project in After Effects using CINEWARE. I'll start by showing you how to prepare your scene objects and materials to give a nice 2D style look to all your 3D objects. Then, I'll show you how to creatively use CINEMA 4Ds dynamics module to apply real-world physics to your objects.
We'll then use the Mograph module as I show you how it can be used to animate and create 2D style elements in a fraction of the time it would take to create them manually in After Effects. Then, we'll composite all of our 3D elements and 2D elements together in After Effects by using the powerful new plugin, CINEWARE. We'll be covering all these features, plus plenty of other tools and techniques. Now let's get rolling with Motion Graphics Techniques: Mixing After Effects and CINEMA 4D.
- 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
