Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video Animating the pie chart, part of Animating Charts and Graphs in CINEMA 4D.
- The various effectors in MoGraph…offer a way to animate with large brush strokes…across several objects.…In this video, we'll take a look at plain, target,…and delay effectors.…So, previously, we had set this up to have our pie slices…animate on with our percent control.…Our imported Illustrator file still has these…as static objects, so I'm just going to select them…and get rid of them.…So we can take these individual slices now and animate them…through the use of a MoGraph Fracture object.…
Let's grab a Fracture object and make these guys…children of the fracture.…This allows MoGraph to see these individual pieces…as clones, which means we can use the effectors on them.…So let's add in a Plain effector.…So with the Fracture object selected,…I'll come over here and select Plain.…You'll notice it jumps up.…That parameter inside the Plain effector…has this default of 100 on the Y.…I actually want it to be 100 or maybe 150 on the Z.…So as this Plain effector comes in,…It's going to animate the pieces of the pie…
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
