I've used Duik several times in the past but usually when someone else has rigged the character and, if I did use it, it usually looked pretty bad. I decided to try it out using a character that I've designed. It's not perfect but compared to previous attempts at doing walking cycles in the past I'm a lot happier with the results.
In this quick tutorial, I'll be demonstrating how I created a my 'sushi-go-round' conveyer belt from my latest GIF animation! First, I'll show you how to create & animate the conveyer belt using simple primitive objects and Spline Wrap. Then I'll go over how to stick objects to the surface of the conveyer belt so the plates slide along with the conveyer belt movement using a Constraint Tag. I'll show you some handy tips with using the Constraint Tag and get our sushi movin' and groovin' along our conveyer belt! Finally, I'll show you how to easily duplicate the sushi plate and position it on the conveyer belt.
If you have any questions, be sure to post them below! As always, please share what you make using this technique, I always love to see what you create! Keep on creating!
In this tutorial I'm going to show you how you can use Cinema 4D and Sketch and Toon to apply the popular line art styles to your 3D objects. Sketch and Toon is a fairly deep module in C4D but I'll cover all you need to know to be able to achieve this line art style look. I'll show you everything from how to flatly texture your object to how to apply strokes to your objects and even splines. I'll also demonstrate how to use Sketch Style Tags to be able to apply specific styles and sketch materials to individual objects in your scene.
