Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video Finishing techniques, part of Cinema 4D: Animating Charts and Graphs.
- In this video we'll take a look at some techniques…that you can use to polish off your animations.…Here in this pie graph, I've got some materials…that I've applied and colored up our logo,…our legend here, and our pies.…So the pie slices, if you come over here,…you'll take a look at the extrude.…I've added some material tags to the individual slices.…And because I don't necessarily want the outermost…stroke to be the same color, there's a simple way…that we can add in yet another tag, another color,…to this pie slice.…
So let's take a look at the way that this is ordered here.…I'm going to put the white material underneath…the blue, and with these extrude objects,…there is kind of a hidden or built-in selection tag,…and that selection tag you can apply to a textured material.…So we can take this and, under the Selection field here,…we'll type in c1, and that stands for caps.…And so because this is an extrusion,…it sees a portion of these things as caps…and extrusions.…So the c1 is limiting our blue material…
This course is a project-based learning experience that will introduce different tools and techniques for importing, styling, and manipulating chart data in C4D. Alan Demafiles shows how to drive relationships between spreadsheet data and geometry with set-driven XPresso keys, connect points with tracer objects, and animate charts with dynamic primitive objects. He also explains how to customize the look and behavior of your charts and graphs to fit the style of your company or your client's.
- Using XPresso to link data
- Importing spreadsheet data into CINEMA 4D
- Harnessing mograph effectors
- Connecting dots with tracer objects
- Adding text and x- and y-axes
- Creating pie charts and bar charts with CINEMA 4D
