This tutorial will help you create your own oceanic water in Cinema 4D. This tutorial will go over sub-polygon displacement, how to animate noise textures over different channels, and how to paint using vertex maps. Very cool stuff. Also, be sure to check out part 2 to see how to bring this animation together in AE. Music is Perpetuum Mobile from Penguin Cafe Orchestra.
In this tutorial I look at how we created the character walk cycles in the Groupon videos over at Daily Planet Productions ltd. The character is animated using a combination of parenting layers and the puppet tool. This character was built entirely in After Effects but the same concept can be used if you were bringing in Photoshop layers.
This tutorial is recommended for beginners. Some basic commands and effects are covered.
