After Effects Guru: Working with 3D in C4D Lite
After Effects Guru: Working with 3D in C4D Lite is an Intermediate level course on 3D + Animation, produced by the creator, Ian Robinson. This course is a critical pillar for an individual who needs to excel in his/her 3D + Animation skills. It provides you a strong understanding on 3D + Animation, Compositing, Motion Graphics, Photography, Video, After Effects, 3D + Animation, Compositing, Motion Graphics, Photography, Video and After Effects.
After Effects Guru helps you dig deep into advanced After Effects options and techniques. This first installment focuses on the new CINEMA 4D (C4D) Lite plugin—a slimmed down version of MAXON’s 3D modeling program offered with After Effects CC—and the exciting ways the two programs integrate.
Author Ian Robinson walks through the basics of using C4D Lite and moving between C4D and After Effects. Learn to match your frame rates and project settings, create 3D type and other models, apply materials, add animation, and output your project for compositing in After Effects. Covering the basic linear workflow, this course is the perfect introduction for the experienced After Effects artist who’s new to the C4D workflow.
