- [Instructor] So you've created your animation,…finessed it with the f-curves,…but that's just the beginning.…To really enhance an animation,…or motion graphics project,…you're gonna want to hit specific audio beats,…and adding music or sound effects…will go a long way to enhance and reinforce the visual,…by adding another dimension to the final animation.…Adding sound to a Cinema 4D project…isn't immediately obvious.…There's a few steps you need to take to get it to work,…so let's take a look at how we'd add sound to our project.…First we need a place to store some sound,…and a sensible object would be a null,…so we'll just create a new null object,…and I'm gonna rename it to Sound.…
Next we need to open up the timeline,…so Shift-F-Three will bring up our timeline,…and we need to drag the sound null into the timeline.…If you can't see it, we need to just reset the view.…You can choose Bookmarks, Default Bookmark,…and that's a good way of getting back to your standard view,…and then we can just drag in the sound null.…
