Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video Modeling the curtains, part of Cinema 4D: Cloth Simulations for Motion Graphics.
- In theater, there are different styles…of proscenium curtains that's used…as a barrier between the audience and…the stage before a show.…Over the next few videos, we'll take a look at…how we can create a tableau curtain,…and simulate that to reveal something underneath.…So, here you can see the motion of how a…tableau curtain works, it's kind of…pinched off here in the middle,…and it gets pulled off to the side.…So, we're going to create a model…of the curtains, and we'll try to model in…the pleated look of the curtains to start with.…So, in CINEMA, let's go ahead and create a plane,…and I'm going to change up the orientation to "-Z,"…and that way it's facing towards us.…
I'm also going to come over here to "Basic,"…and change up "Use Color" to "On,"…and for the display color, we'll go for,…you know, a nice theater red curtain here.…Okay.…Also, go to display, and turn on "Gouraud Shading"…with lines so we can see our geometry.…And lastly, let's bring in a figure as a reference.…This gentlemen is 183 centimeters, roughly 6 feet tall,…
Cloth Simulations for Motion Graphics in CINEMA 4D is a project-based learning experience that follows three projects from start to finish: an animated flag blowing in the wind, opening and closing theater curtains, and a cloth-on-object logo reveal. Each project is rich with lessons that artists can adapt and apply to any cloth animation. Author Alan Demafiles will help viewers use the C4D Cloth tag and colliders, attach cloth to other geometry in a scene, loop simulations, correct imperfections with the morph deformer, and apply logos and other patterns to fabric. Start watching to incorporate cloth simulations into your mograph skillset.
