Join EJ Hassenfratz for an in-depth discussion in this video A preview of the finished product, part of Mograph Techniques: Animating with C4D Effectors.
Here's a little sneak peek of what we're going to be creating in this course.…We're going to be making a network promo bumper for a fake TV station named Pixel.…We're going to be creating this cube grid with a cloner object.…We're going to be using MoGraph effectors to motivate the transition of these…two words, and everything is just going to be driven with only two keyframes.…We're also going to jump in to After Effects to add some finishing touches.…So before you dive in, it's important to know what kind of look we're going to be aiming for.…
Now let's get started.…
- Creating a cube grid with the MoGraph Cloner
- Creating first-, second-, and third-wave animations
- Using a null object to group and keyframe multiple effectors
- Limiting the influence of an effector
- Adding texture
- Using an HDRI map for reflections
- Lighting the scene
- Importing a CINEMA 4D project into After Effects
- Isolating and changing text color with object buffers

Q: I rendered a Compositing Project File (AEC) from CINEMA 4D, but I am unable to import that file into After Effects.
A: In order to import an AEC file into After Effects, you will need to have the free Cinema 4D Importer plugin for After Effects installed. The plugin can be downloaded here: http://www.maxon.net/support/updates/plugins.html
For more information on this plugin, including instructions on how to install it, refer to Cinema 4D Essentials 5: Rendering and Compositing with Rob Garrott. The movie titled "Rendering and importing elements into After Effects" explains how to install this plugi
