Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video Animating with effectors, part of Cinema 4D: Animating Charts and Graphs.
- [Voiceover] In this video, we'll animate…the rest of our elements using MoGraph effectors.…Previously we've animated the bar chart and all the numbers.…Let's go ahead and animate these values…here on the side, the labels.…So, with this megawatts object selected,…we'll twirl it down and say, take a look at the fracture.…Actually, let's go to the individual MoText objects.…So you'll see here that the MoText objects…has tabs here for the lines, words, and letters.…You can drop in effectors in here.…
So let's select all these guys and under letters,…I'm going to go MoGraph, Plain Effector.…So we'll just turn off the position for right now.…What I'd like to do is to enable rotation.…Let's go ahead and disable our camera.…We'll come in and zoom a little closer here.…Let's make sure that our plain effector…has a falloff of linear.…I'm going to scale him up.…
Let's rotate it, maybe up or down.…Let's try up.…Right now, as we cycle through,…there's nothing happening obviously…because we haven't set any parameters here.…
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.
- Using XPresso to link data
- Importing spreadsheet data into CINEMA 4D
- Harnessing mograph effectors
- Connecting dots with tracer objects
- Adding text and x- and y-axes
- Creating pie charts and bar charts with CINEMA 4D
