Create a Realistic Subway Station Scene using Cinema 4D and After Effects

by

This 2 part tutorial takes us underground to examine how to build a 3D model of a subway train and make it zip past a real subway platform. First, we'll use Cinema 4D to craft a subway car using a few basic primitive shapes, while adding detail with Sweep, Extrude, and Loft NURBS elements. Then, we'll texture and light our car to create a realistic look, and allow our CG car to blend in with our real subway environment. Finally, the MoGraph module will help us clone our car and make a long train to animate into our scene, and then we'll do some quick adjustments in After Effects to put the finishing touches on our subway station composite.

    Hey 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…
