Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video Tweaking the layout, part of Cinema 4D: Animating Charts and Graphs.
- In this video we'll rearrange some of these elements…to fit our screen space.…So from the previous video,…I went ahead and duplicated our 2015 data,…and that guy lives over there.…And so really, what I want is to have…these guys move back behind there.…So, I'm gonna move this over,…and switch to my top view,…hitting f2,…and just move this back there.…And you'll notice the distributions a little off here,…so let's try and fix that.…I'm going to use a cloner object…for each of these 2010 and 2015 data.…Let's double-click there,…to disable the visibility,…and we'll switch over to our 2010 data,…and I'm going to add in a cloner object.…
So, 2010 Cloner,…we'll drop in our 2010 objects in there.…And under Cloner, Object.…You'll see that this is offsetting everything in Y by…50 cm, which is not what we want.…We want to just drag this now out…say 5000 for right now.…We'll do the same thing for the 2015.…Rename that 2015 Cloner.…
And zero that out, and 5000.…If we turn on the visibility,…we'll see they're sitting on top of each other.…
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
