Join EJ Hassenfratz for an in-depth discussion in this video Choosing the right version of CINEMA 4D, part of Mograph Techniques: Movie Trailer Titles in CINEMA 4D and After Effects.
- Before we get into this course let's talk about the different versions CINEMA 4D and which version you'll need to use this course. In this course we'll cover some very useful features inside of CINEMA 4D, including the MoGraph module. Now MoGraph is a great tool for creating motion graphic elements quickly and easily by using MoGraph Effectors. If you're a After Effects CC or above user, CINEMA 4D Lite is included and while this allows you to work with CINEMA 4D files inside of After Effects, many of it's better features are not included.
Specifically, a few of the MoGraph tools used in this course, for example, the Shader Effector, Delay Effector, or the MoGraph Data Xpresso Node are not supported, but as they're not totally essential for completing the course, you can still follow along using CINEMA 4D Lite. You won't get exactly the same look, but you'll be able to produce something pretty similar. To be able to fully follow along in the course you'll need to have CINEMA 4D Broadcast or Studio Version R12 or above, but again, you could still follow along for most of this course using CINEMA 4D Lite.
