In this 2 part tutorial we get our hands dirty with a little expression math to create some beautifully organic light streaks that are used to reveal the AETUTS logo. In part 1 Lloyd breaks down the science behind creating a simple expression that drives the light streak emitter and shows you how easy it is to create infinite variations with ease.

We will make this title using Cinema 4D for the modeling and animation of the logo. Then we'll see how to use the lights system and materials to save us a lot of time on After Effects for the final styling and compositing. We'll also be using the new CINEWARE module where you can extract any alpha channel you want.Read More…

- 3D & Motion GraphicsModel, Texture and Render a Realistic Light Bulb with 3ds Max & C4D - Part 1Difficulty:IntermediateCompletion Time:LongIn this new two part tutorial series, brothers Andrew and Stefan Surmabojov are teaming up to show you how to create an ultra-realistic light bulb. Utilizing a powerful combination of tools from both 3D Studio Max and Cinema 4D, this series will show you how the two programs can be used together to achieve fantastic results. In part one, Andrew will guide you through the creation of the model in 3ds Max, using a variety of simple yet powerful tools and techniques. Along the way, you'll learn some interesting ways to approach modeling the various elements, resulting in an extremely detailed, accurate model ready for Cinema 4D.Read More…
- 3D & Motion GraphicsCreating an Ice Cream Bar Animation with Maya, RealFlow And AE - Part 2Hey folks, in this portion of the tutorial we are going to focus on the pouring liquid chocolate simulation in RealFlow. We'll start off by finding ways to achieve a stable viscosity liquid simulation, and discuss the different ways to apply it on a horizontal surface VS a vertical surface. After that we'll import our simulation to Maya, create a shader for it and integrate it into the animation. Once you've wrapped up work on part 2, immediately head over to Aetuts+ for the conclusion of the project. Where you'll learn how to composite all the cg elements together and make everything look sexy with some post work in After Effects!Read More…
