- So in this section we're going to take…what we used previously with the Xpresso setup…and extrapolation that to drive our X axis text…and our Y axis text.…So right now when we take our Data Object…and scale it out…only our fans are moving in our line graph.…We need to bring these guys along for the ride.…So let's start with the X axis text.…Let's bring this Data back to 1,…and dive down into our Cloner.…Let's select all our MoText.…We'll middle-click on that Cloner…and deselect the parent,…and now we can go into the Objects…and bring that down to 100.…
We'll also play with the Align…and set that to Middle.…Clicking on the Cloner object again…in the Coordinates,…we need to make sure that this is zeroed out.…So that 0 does indeed start with 0.…Let's hit f4 on the keyboard…to get to the Front view.…So 0 matches up with 0,….3 should, let's see,…we're missing our Object here.…Go to this property here and these are supposed…to be spaced out 100 centimeters apart,…and by doing so you'll see that 3 now lines up with three,…
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
