What You'll Be Creating

This tutorial demonstrates techniques, using different programs, to create one final animation.  

The project is divided into two parts which illustrate the following:

Tutorial 1: Cinema 4d Techniques

  • import vector art
  • extrude vector paths
  • apply deformers to simulate a sticker peel
  • draw spline elements
  • distort a shape along a path
  • adjust animation curves
  • apply object buffers to objects
  • light a scene with "The Illuminati"
  • create custom luma mattes using selections
  • export an animation with nulls to After Effects

Tutorial 2: After Effects Techniques

  • selectively colorize using luma mattes
  • use Adobe Color to assign colors
  • combine luma mattes to make a new matte
  • remove the fringe associated with C4D luma mattes
  • use nulls generated in C4D to integrate graphics in AE
