Read Time: 1 min

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.
