- With all the elements of our Cloth Simulation in place,…let's go ahead and focus in on animating…that helper object to reveal that logo.…So I'm going to select my helper object…and basically I want this thing to move…from this starting position over here to the right.…And so that'll pull that cloth off of there…and reveal the logo.…But I want to animate it in such a way…that it doesn't alter the simulation…of the cloth right now.…I'm going to select my Cloth Tag…and just disable the Cloth Engine…for right now as we animate our helper object.…
Let's come back to our helper object…and insert some key frames here.…So I'll select all on my position…and just lay down the first set of key frames.…And somewhere by frame 30 I suppose,…let's just go ahead and pull this guy,…somewhere in here.…And maybe we increase the Y as well.…It's good and set a key frame there, frame 30.…And you'll notice that we have an animation.…Let's rewind and play it back.…So that's a pretty linear move…in terms of the position space.…
I'm not sure how that's going affect our cloth just yet.…
Cloth Simulations for Motion Graphics in CINEMA 4D is a project-based learning experience that follows three projects from start to finish: an animated flag blowing in the wind, opening and closing theater curtains, and a cloth-on-object logo reveal. Each project is rich with lessons that artists can adapt and apply to any cloth animation. Author Alan Demafiles will help viewers use the C4D Cloth tag and colliders, attach cloth to other geometry in a scene, loop simulations, correct imperfections with the morph deformer, and apply logos and other patterns to fabric. Start watching to incorporate cloth simulations into your mograph skillset.
