Creating animation that can stop, start, and ease into position is a fundamental part of motion graphics animations. In this video, learn how to do this by manipulating an object's motion path using f-curves in the Cinema 4D timeline.
- [Instructor] We're going to continue working…with keyframes and easing to create a wipe…animation here for this logo.…So at the moment, it's just rotating…and what we want it to do is come…from the right of screen over to the…left as a wipe, as it rotates around.…So we'll click onto the logo and the X coordinate,…we're just going to scoot this over,…just so it is off screen, so about 342, looks good.…And then we'll create a keyframe for that value.…
And we'll come over to the end,…and we'll just bring this back,…so it's off screen.…So let's just play through that, now.…And it's okay, it looks a bit quick.…We kind of want it to get to a…point sooner, so this, this point here at…30 frames, we'd like to get it to there,…hold, and then spin off.…So we're sort of creating stops…and starts and eases here.…So if we bring this closer together,…so we've just said we want it to be,…let's just call the value zero,…and what we want to do is make a copy of this.…
So I'll press Command, or Control,…and we can click and drag out a copy of that.…
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.
