Create an Animated Bar Graph with Cinema 4D and Xpresso

by

Use the power of Xpresso and Mograph to create a 3D bar graph that automatically updates based on settings that you specify. In this tutorial you will learn how to set up Xpresso, which allows you to link the different parameters together, so that the graph can be easily animated and adjusted to fit any set of data.

If you are someone who makes corporate style videos frequently, this will provide you with a much quicker and more exciting way to visually represent data, instead of a plain Powerpoint-style slide. If you are not, then you will be able to learn some of the powerful things that you can do with animation using Xpresso and Mograph in conjunction with Cinema 4d.
