In this 2 part tutorial, I'm going to show you how you can create a retro 80's style animated GIF using Cinema 4D (or Cinema 4D Lite), After Effects, and Photoshop. We'll start by first building our scene inside of C4D and creating all our retro elements. Then, we'll light and texture our scene and keep within a retro color palette. In Part 2 of this tutorial, we'll bring our rendered animation into After Effects and apply effects to turn our crisp rendered 3D make it look like a faded VHS tape. Finally, we'll render our animation from AE, bring it into Photoshop and I'll cover how you can turn your animation into an animated GIF.
