In this series of CINEMA 4D and TurbulenceFD tutorials, we'll learn how to create an interesting and dynamic logo. We'll build the logo using frozen and reversed fire as well as liquid simulations. During this tutorial we'll use CINEMA 4D, TurbulenceFD,and RealFlow to integrate liquid simulation, fire, and smoke into our scene. In addition, we'll learn to control the timing and playback of those simulations. We'll set up our 3D scene to render in multi-passes and finally, to composite the end animation within After Effects. By then end of this CINEMA 4D and TurbulenceFD training, you'll be able to create imaginative logos using professional industry simulation tools. Software required: CINEMA 4D R14, RealFlow 2014, TurbulenceFD, After Effects 5.5.
Introduction and Project Overview Hey everyone, my name's Josh Smith, I'm a freelance motion designer based out of Los Angeles. Recent projects I've worked on include work for The Strain, CSI Miami, Grimm, and corporate animations for clients like Boeing, Biogen, and Walgreens. In this course, we're going to learn how to create a dynamic logo or title build from a burning molten liquid. Some of the major topics that we're going to be discussing in this course will include using RealFlow to melt the title apart and then freeze it, how to import and use RealFlow assets within Cinema 4D, using TurbulenceFD to create an interesting fire and smoke simulation, controlling that turbulence cache playback timing and freezing it, and finally setting up a multi-pass render for compositing within After Effects. By the end of the training, you should be able to use Cinema 4D, RealFlow, and TurbulenceFD all in conjunction with one another to create interesting simulations in a dynamically complex animation. I'm excited to work with Digital-Tutors so we can share these valuable tricks and techniques with fellow artists. So let's get started with the first lesson.
