Both the MoGraph Fracture and Voronoi Fracture objects can enable objects in Cinema 4D to be used in the MoGraph system without the need for a Cloner. In this video, learn the set up for each object.
- [Instructor] There's going to be occasions…where you're working with an object…and when it comes to animating it…you think to yourself, it would be…so much easier if I could use the MoGraph system,…and so how do we get objects into the MoGraph system…without them becoming part of a cloner setup?…So we can select our extrude object here…and come over to MoGraph menu and…press Alt and then add a Fracture object.…So in the current mode there's only…going to be one axis which is just…this one here that we have that you can see,…and so let's illustrate what happens…with the straight mode turned on.…
If we add a Random effector you can see…that it's just affecting the whole object…with these position values.…Now if we come over and choose,…change the mode to Explode Segments…we'll get a different result and…each object has its own axis.…If we choose Explode Segments & Connect…we'll get even another result, which…depending on the object it can be…a bit more pleasing to use this result.…So with the Random effector selected…
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.
