Audio can really enhance animation. In this video, learn how to add sound to a Cinema 4D project, use markers to visualize the beat, and manipulate keyframes to match.
- [Instructor] Creating beautiful, finessed animation…is just the beginning.…To really enhance an animation or motion graphics project,…you're going to want to hit specific audio beats.…Adding music or sound effects will go a long way…to enhance and reinforce the visual…by adding another dimension to the animation.…Adding sound to a Cinema 4D project…in the past wasn't immediately obvious.…There were a few steps you needed to take to get it to work.…But with release 19, it's far simpler.…We'll create a MoGraph sound effector,…and here we can just choose to click this arrow here…and load in some sound.…
In release 19, you don't have to use just the high res…files such as wav and aiff,…you can use M4As, MP3s, and even the audio part of an MP4.…I'm going to click onto the M4A and if you want to,…you can use the wav, it's entirely up to you.…I'll open that up now,…and we have some sound in our project.…I'm going to click off this now, because we don't really…need to use the sound effector anymore,…and I'll play through the timeline.…
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.
