Creating A Stylish 3D Countdown Animation In Cinema 4D


Start a hosting plan from $3.92/mo and get a free year on Tuts+ (normally $180)

In this tutorial we're going to create a smooth, stylish countdown animation. You can use words, letters, logos or whatever you want to make this type of animation. As you can see it's easy to set up and looks very stylish and attractive.

NOTE: For the Global Illumination lighting I used the "HDRI Studio Light Kit Pro" from GreyScale Gorilla, but it's optional. If you don't have it, you can just simply load any HDRI you want into the color channel of a shader and put it on the sky object and it's going to work the same way.
