Cinema 4D Mograph Fundamentals

by Joshua Smith

Cinema 4D's Mograph module is one of the most powerful and widely used tools available to today's motion designers. In this course, you'll get an in-depth, introductory look at using Cinema 4D's Mograph tools. Software required: Cinema 4D R18.

What you'll learn

Are you a new motion designer just starting out, or are simply looking to expand your skill-set by adding the power of Cinema 4D's Mograph tools? In this course, Cinema 4D Mograph Fundamentals, you'll be introduced to Cinema 4D's Mograph tools and learn how to utilize them in practice. First, you'll learn a basic overview of the fundamental building blocks of Cinema 4D's Mograph module - generators, cloners, effectors, and how to use them together. Next, you'll explore several different real-world scenarios, which will give you a chance to get more in-depth with specific tools, while creating animations similar to real design challenges. Some of these scenarios will include using C4D R18's new Voronoi Fracture object to procedurally break something into pieces and make it crumble, cloning a swarm of objects along a spline path, and using the Inheritance Effector with dynamics to form them into a logo. Finally, you'll learn how to use the Sound Effector to make things react to any music or sound clip, and how to use the Volume Effector to create a 3D pixelated animation effect. When you're finished with this course, you'll have a solid understanding of some of the most powerful and widely-used motion design tools in the industry. You'll have a great foundation for creating robust animations, and creating your own awesome animations using Cinema 4D R18's Mograph tools. Software required: Cinema 4D R18.
