1. In this tutorial, we take our AEC file from C4D and import it into After Effects. This is where we learn about the cameras, timeline, buffers, depth-of-field and so many other effects and tricks that can only be done through an AEC file with an RPF sequence.

  3. This tutorial shows how to complete the Abyss tentacle. Watch as I take the RPF sequence into After Effects, combine it with some greenscreen footage, and then use techniques like keying, color correcting and adding a fake motion from a camera to complete the scene. Learn about keylight, adjustment layers, curves, tritones and many more helpful tips.

  5. In this tutorial, we tackle how to create water condensation on a delicious can of soda. To do this, we will use sub-polygonal displacement. We drop the water droplet displacement channel "between" the can geometry so only the water droplets pop out the edge of the can. To do this tutorial, go to http://www.renderready.com to download the start file and watch as I help build the rest with you. Enjoy!
