In this tutorial, I will show you how to create a simple Iris Portal in Cinema 4D. We will learn how to use the boolean object as a mask to conceal the outer edges of the Iris. Finally, we will do a little expresso to build a simple control to open and close the Iris.
In this tutorial, I will walk you through on how to create a quick camera chase scene using multiple cameras in Cinema 4D using the Stage Object to create quick cuts. I will also show you how to incorporate the Motion Camera Tag into a few of the cameras to get a dynamic chase effect. Then we will use the New Cineware plugin by Maxon to import our Cinema 4D scene into After Effects CC.
**Note : Pascal Fürst commented below and pointed out that you do not have to create a dummy After Effects file to import the c4d file into AE. You just have to import the c4d file like any other file into After Effects. Thanks for that info Pascal!
In this tutorial, I'll show you one way to utilize the handy 'Guide Layer' in After Effects on an Element 3D asset. I use this useful technique to guide the Team Logo placement on a Football Helmet while keeping the UV map invisible on rendering time. This workflow is similar to working with UV's inside a 3D app like Cinema 4D or Maya where you don't see the actual UV's on the model when working with textures, as the UV's only serve as a guide to place your textures.
In this tutorial, I demonstrate this technique on my latest Videohive template "Football Player Headshot Transition" which you can find on for sale Videohive here:
Are you constantly clicking the 'Only Select Visible Elements' off and on when making point/face/edge selections in your modeling workflow? In this C4D tutorial, I'll show you how to quickly setup a shortcut to toggle that option on and off for a better workflow.
In this tutorial, I will show you how to Convert an Illustrator file into a Vector Shape using After Effects CS6. Then we will use the Trim Paths and Repeater attributes inside the Vector Shape to create a complex looking animation rather easily.
