- [Teacher] In the previous movie,…we talked about the key tools…a motion graphics artist needs to know…in order to be effective, and Cinema 4D…is a very important tool in the pipeline.…Pipeline being a set of stages or processes…to get from concept to completion.…If we really simplify the pipeline…into three discreet processes,…generally speaking, 3D work fits in the middle,…and by that I mean the proceeding…and following parts are usually 2D stages.…So if we take a commercial as an example…of production pipeline, the commercial…would begin in a 2D world.…
So, script, storyboard, edit, that sort of thing.…And once we have an edit, maybe the script…calls for a transition into a 3D…created product shot or something like that.…So, the 3D graphics what needs to be created…and we work in stages of modeling, animating,…lighting and texturing.…Finally 3D would be rendered.…So, you'd get these images back,…and at that point, we're moving into…the 2D world once again.…So, those rendered images would then be…composited and brought into a final edit…
