In this series of tutorials, we will go through the process of creating a product visualization animation complete with text explaining the benefits of the product. This product also includes its packaging, which can create some unique challenges when trying to show off the product itself. We'll learn how to make this work for us and then how to bring this inanimate object to life. We'll use Cloners and our own personal hierarchy controls to create lots of fun and interesting arrangements of the product. After we finish animating, we learn how we can set up lights and cameras to use as placeholders. We use these with the "extract" function in the CINEWARE effect in After Effects. They will keep position and rotation keys for us to use with the text that we later want to add to the composition. After all the text and icons have been added to the comp, we finish off with a few realistic lens effects. This training is for you if you want to create product visualizations with text interactions and learn more about the powerful CINEWARE bridge between After Effects and CINEMA 4D. Software required: CINEMA 4D R15, After Effects 184.108.40.206, Knoll Light Factory.
