In this 1-day crash course, Participants will learn how to take a simple logo animation in CINEMA 4D and transform it into a compelling motion graphic with Adobe After Effects, incorporating two distinct styles. Starting with a prebuilt animation rendered from CINEMA 4D, Participants will employ industry-standard techniques, utilizing materials, lights and the library of effects in After Effects to enhance the project’s look and feel. CINEMA 4D is a 3D modeling, animation and rendering application. Adobe After Effects is an animation, video compositing, and motion graphics application. Our Instructors are well versed in Cinema 4D and 3D concepts and have a knack for making this challenging program less intimidating.
