This is a C4D project template of outlines of your text animating in random and unique outline elements that come together to spell your word(s). This abstract way to bring up your text outlines basically has limitless possibilities and the 6 videos in the preview are just a taste of what you are able to create with this. This Cinema 4D project renders out very fast and no After Effects is needed unless you need it. You have control over the line thickness, number of lines per character, how round or square the line is, you can animate the lines farther or closer away from the end character, and more! You are able to use up to 21 characters of type and use basically any font you would like. An indepth video tutorial is included breaking down the whole project in great detail. The Cinema 4D user control for this are really easy to use and straight forward to maximize your render and render speed. You could describe this type building on effect similar look to architecture, energy, space, a blueprint, etc. The preview image below shows the exact controls you have to use.
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.
