Often ideas for tutorials arise when experimenting inside of Cinema 4D and trying out some ideas you've seen online before or have thought of and pushing yourself to discover ways of achieving them inside Cinema 4D.
In this tutorial, we'll cover a quick and easy way to make a laser scan an object inside of Cinema 4D. This laser beam reacts well with all objects and is a sure-fire way to create a realistic laser scan for all your animations and motion graphics.
In this tutorial I'll show you how to create a laser beam and etch a logo into a piece of metal using Cinema 4D. I will then show you how to export it and then import the composition data into Adobe After Effects in order to add realistic sparks and smoke.
Princeton, NJ (June 5, 2013)‚ cmiVFX has released Maxon C4D Advanced Particles with Sam Welker. In life many of the biggest things are made of millions of smaller things. A lot of these smaller things are particles. In motion graphics and visual effects you'll often find that adding a lot of variation and detail can really add a visual value to your final result. Particles are especially helpful in this scenario and can be quite powerful. Maxon Cinema 4D is a useful tool, but where it's furthest strengths lie with particles are found in bringing in 3rd party tools. This series will take advantage of incredible tools such as TurbulenceFD by Jawset, PShade from plugins4cinema4d.com, and TP Partio by 908Productions found on aescripts.net . These tools will be necessary to fully experience this series but don't be afraid. These are some of the most powerful particle plugins mentor Sam Welker has integrated into his daily workflow and will continue to be useful for your particle work.
