In this video, explore the work of motion graphics artists to help visualize what can be created with Cinema 4D. Every artist featured uses Cinema 4D in different ways.
- [Instructor] There's a very large and talented community…of Cinema 4D users.…Like any software, C4D is just the tool,…and it's when you put that tool in the hands of an artist,…you find out how truly great it is.…I wanted to share some examples of artists' work…to help you visualize what you can create…with this awesome software.…Every artist here uses C4D but in different ways,…so let's check them out.…Now you've been looking at a video playing…of some work that I had a hand in creating,…and this is for Google,…and we combined stop motion with work created in C4D,…and this was working with a company called Nearly Normal,…and it was a lot of fun to work on this project.…
My friend and fellow author E.J. has some really cool…projects here, and you can see some of his process…if you click into these.…There's some really fun animations,…and this 2D look is achieved by using specific…rendering techniques in Cinema 4D.…Michael Rigley is an award-winning art director…and designer.…I've always been a fan of his work,…
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.
