Charles Yeager (Yeagerfilm.com) shows several ways to make a 360° logo animation using SkyBox Studio, a 360/VR plugin for After Effects.
This tutorial is based on a logo animation by Chris Tilley of Gnoggin Studios that uses Element 3D. Charles does a breakdown explanation, and then shows a few different methods to make the 360 animation, with and without E3D.

Just a quick little tutorial explaining how I animate my walk cycles. This isn't really an in depth tutorial, it's meant to used as a guide or a reference that you can quickly look at without having to wade through minutes of inane commentary.
If you want a more in depth explanation check out the book "The Animator's Survival Kit" by Richard Williams.
In this tutorial, I'll show you how to create cool, stylized, cartoon style 2D fire effects using just Cinema 4D. We'll start out by going over how to set up your scene to get the flat 2D shading using the Cel Shader (eyedesyn.com/creating-an-illustrative-2d-style-with-3d-objects-in-cinema-4d/) as well as how to set up your camera & lighting. Then I'll show you how to create the flame using a bunch of techniques that I also go over in my Cel Shader Paint Strokes tutorial (eyedesyn.com/cel-animation-paint-strokes/) and also show you how to tweak it to get different types of flames. Finally, I'll cover how I used the Normal Direction shader to be able to see through our 3D flame geometry to see the match stick. If you have any questions, be sure to hit me in the comments below! If you make anything with this technique, be sure to share it!
Do you want to have a real gallery? Now you have started a 3D gallery, all created in After Effects. This stylish and elegant project that will leave much impact. You can use this gallery for: portfolio, companies, events, birthdays, family album, weddings, art or photo gallery…
