The Animation mode in Cinema 4D allows you to manipulate a motion path without destroying the keyframes that have already been set. In this video, learn how to use the Animation mode to alter the positioning of a motion path.
- Here we have an animation with a slight problem.…Now, it's not the ball turning into a cube,…it's the fact that the ball is not really…bouncing in the right place.…And if we look at the view here, we can see…it's actually bouncing underneath the floor.…Oh, dear.…Now, we need to fix that,…so what we can do is, select our cube,…and then just start changing all these key frames.…No, I think we'll find a faster way.…Now, there is a special mode called animation mode.…
So, we'll come over to here and just select that.…And what animation mode allows us to do is to…manipulate the whole motion path…without destroying the key frames.…So, what we can do is just move this over into place,…and then I'm going to use the front view here…to line up so that the ball bounces on the stairs correctly…and on the floor.…So, we're in a pretty good position here we can…pretty much see what we've got going on.…So, I need to bring this over, need to bring this back,…and up a lot, as well,…because we need to factor in the bounce of the ball.…
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.
