Join Eran Stern for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of Mograph Techniques: Creating a Flat Vector Look using Cinema 4D and After Effects.
This course, assume you have some basic knowledge using Adobe After Effects and Maxon Cinema 4D. Concepts like import files, working with layers, parenting and key frame animation should be familiar to you in both software. If this is not the case, we have plenty of basic training here at lynda.com to help you get started. You should also be aware that this course rely on the studio version of Cinema 4D, which includes upon other things the dynamic animation system, as well as the monograph tools.
I'm going to use version R 15 of cinema 4D, and version CC of After Effects. To be able to follow along in this course, you will need to have access to these flavors of the software as well.
