Description

We begin by building the set from scratch in CINEMA 4D in such a way that we save a lot of time through the use of MoGraph. This also saves time in being able to quickly animate our pieces. We add more models that help to make the piece feel more customized. After adding the textures we move onto the lighting process where we learn a few tricks for lighting a scene well without making your render take much longer than it needs to. After rendering in CINEMA 4D, we move into After Effects where we use CINEWARE to extract our CINEMA 4D placeholders, lights, and camera. We can then easily continue the compositing process. Our shot is completed with realistic looking screens, lens flares, and other lens effects. By the end of the course, you'll learn how to start with nothing and end with a fully completed 3D motion graphics piece you can be proud of!
