- [Instructor] So, how did you get on?…I hope it was fun and challenged you.…Here's what I ended up creating.…I decided to incorporate the logo with the city model.…I went for a playful feel, with a large, sweeping…camera move that flies through the logo, and all…this really needs is some sound effects and music…to finish it off nicely.…I began with a plan, and sketched out ideas.…Thinking about my camera moves, and how objects…would animate in.…This is the project file that I used for the final render.…
Let's go into the accompanying files, and use those…to break down some of the processes.…So, we have our logo, and I'm going to copy it,…and then paste it into the city project file.…So I'll paste that in, and then I'm going to use…my orthographic views to position it, and I knew that…I wanted to put it above this sort of hero building,…this thing that I decided would be a hotel,…and then I eeused the rotate tool just to rotate it,…holding down Shift constraint, ten degree increments.…
And then in the top view, we can start to position it…
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.
