- So as we start getting into animation,…we're going to be using these keyframes…and manipulating them in order…to achieve the animation that we want.…So let's take a quick look at how…to manipulate some of these things…using the F Curve Manager.…I've got a simple cube here,…and I'm going to set a keyframe…for this position.…So I'm going to come over here to Coordinates,…and there's a couple different ways…to set these keyframes.…One, I want to select the parameter…that I want to have animated to keyframe…and hold down Command…and click on the button there.…
And you'll see a red dot.…I'm going to come over down here to 30 frames,…move it down here,…and repeat that same action by clicking again.…You'll notice that there's a path in the viewport,…and if we scrub and play back,…that guy moves, eases in,…and eases out there.…Let's open up the F Curve window.…Going up Window, Timeline F Curve.…Here we can kind of take a closer look…at what's going on with the shape…of these values.…
So when you first click on this,…it may or may not show up completely…
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
