Learn how to use CINEMA 4D R18 in a motion graphics workflow. Learn key foundational concepts, such as spline modeling, keyframe animation, and materials.
- Hi my name is Andy Needham and welcome to CINEMA 4D R18 Motion Graphics Essentials. In this course I'll be teaching you about motion graphics and how you can use CINEMA 4D in your motion graphics work flow. I'll start by giving you some core concepts of working with C4D so you're set up for success. From there, we discuss how to work with Illustrator files in C4D and build models using simple spline paths. We work with the timeline to create keyframed animation and we explore the awesome power of the mograph tools.
Then we cover lighting and materials and I show you how to harness the versatile Take System to get your work out of CINEMA 4D using a couple of work flows. So if you're ready, let's get started with CINEMA 4D R18 Motion Grpahics Essentials.
