Join Andy Needham for an in-depth discussion in this video Challenge overview, part of Cinema 4D R19 Essential Training: Motion Graphics.
- [Instructor] In this motion graphics challenge…we're going to create an animated logo reveal.…You can use this logo, which we worked on in chapter two,…or create your own.…There will be a c4D file that you can use…to kick off the challenge.…The c4D file will consist of the logo,…imported from Illustrator, cleaned up and modeled.…But you can, of course, import and clean up the logo…yourself, if you would prefer, and I'll also provide…the logo in Illustrator eight format.…Additionally, you can use this model of a MoGraph city…and incorporate it in your logo reveal.…
Or, to really push yourself,…why not create your own version?…Let's look at the objectives for this challenge.…First, I want you to plan your animation,…you can save so much time by doing this,…and it helps organize your thoughts.…Then, if you choose to, you will model the logo using…the techniques taught in this course.…Next, animate the logo and be sure to incorporate…some MoGraph elements.…Then, animate the camera, or cameras,…if you choose to have multiple shots.…
Here, learn key foundational concepts, such as spline modeling, lighting, and materials, which are crucial to understanding exactly how this 3D application functions. Instructor Andy Needham covers practical techniques for extruding shapes; working with MoGraph tools such as Cloners and Effectors; and adding lighting and camera views for fully realized 3D motion graphics. Plus, find out how to integrate assets from Adobe Illustrator, composite multipass renders with the After Effects and C4D workflow, and use the Takes System to try different materials and settings and export your projects in the exact sizes and resolutions you need.
