Introduction Hi guys. My name is Chad Troftgruben, and this is After Effects CC with Cinema 4D Lite. Cinema 4D Lite comes bundled with After Effects, and it's a powerful 3D animation software that you can use in conjunction with your After Effects projects, so in this course we're going to cover the basics, and we'll start with the interface. That way you become familiar with all the tools and features on screen. Up next is basic shape construction. We'll start simple with some cubes, and show you how you can work with them in 3D space. Then it's on to using materials or, in other words, applying textures to your objects. Then we'll work with the cameras. We'll show you how to rig lights, and we'll show you how to animate, and then finally integrate it with After Effects, and by the time you're done here we'll create a basic 3D scene with some animation, that way you have some knowledge of Cinema 4D Lite, and you can take it further to craft more complicated projects. So, I hope you're ready because we're about to get started.
