Join Craig Whitaker for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating MoGraph with Fracture objects, part of Cinema 4D R17 Essential Training.
- A very common task that you will come across…inside of Cinema 4D…is taking an object that is not a Cloner,…or a MoGraph object,…and the need to make it MoGraphable.…Yes, MoGraphable is now a word so…when I see that most often is…with client supplied artwork,…so let's say a client supplies you with this logo,…could be splines that you brought up in Illustrator…or whatever,…and you want to add some animation to it.…Well how would we do that?…We would use a Fracture object to do that.…
So if we grab our Fracture object here…in our toolkit in our MoGraph module,…we're also going to need to extrude this text back…and we don't have to do that now but,…actually let's take a look at how it would look…without the extrusion first.…As I said in the previous movie,…the Fracture is a Generator object,…so if we take the text…we'll have to drop it into the Fracture…as a child object.…Now with the Fracture, let's go to our Effectors,…and we'll set a Plain Effector,…and let's just pretend that we're wiping this on.…
Alright, so let's set the…
CINEMA 4D (aka C4D) is a vital tool for anyone considering a career in motion graphics, visual effects, or animation. Whether you're just starting out or migrating to C4D from another program, CINEMA 4D R17 Essential Training has you covered. Craig Whitaker explores some of the new features in R17—the version released in August 2015—and segues into a quick-start chapter that reviews the entire CINEMA 4D workflow in just eight steps. The rest of the course divides CINEMA 4D's core functionality into individual chapters on spline modeling, polygonal modeling, deformers, materials and shaders, lighting, the MoGraph toolbox, animation, and rendering. Craig also shows how to composite your C4D work with live-action footage and other effects in After Effects, using the AEC or CINEWARE workflow. By the end of the course, you should be comfortable working with all of C4D's powerful tools.
