Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding text and X/Y axes, part of Cinema 4D: Animating Charts and Graphs.
- In this lesson, we're going to add text units…that make up the X and Y axes using MoText.…So I'm going to do a little bit of housekeeping here.…We'll take the sweep objects and right-click…and add to layers, fans, since they kind of represent…all of those objects there.…Alright, so in Excel, we're going to make this…Y axis and the X axis.…And we can do that through the use…of a rectangle spline.…Hit F4 on the keyboard and you'll switch over…to the front view.…And the first thing we're going to want to do.…I'm going to move this down.…
Make this editable,…because what we want to have happen…is get access to these points.…And so, I'm going to type "0" in the number row…of the keyboard, and that will switch me…to the rectangle selection tool.…And select this last point,…and I'm just going to delete them.…But you'll notice that it's still connected here.…I don't want that.…Under rectangle, we have a closed spline…that's enabled by default.…Unchecking that will get us what we need.…So this is the basis for our axes,…
This course is a project-based learning experience that will introduce different tools and techniques for importing, styling, and manipulating chart data in C4D. Alan Demafiles shows how to drive relationships between spreadsheet data and geometry with set-driven XPresso keys, connect points with tracer objects, and animate charts with dynamic primitive objects. He also explains how to customize the look and behavior of your charts and graphs to fit the style of your company or your client's.
