Working with Motion Capture files such as the FBX format, this workshop takes you step-by-step through various techniques for creating animated elements from captured motion. Watch your motion design advance to new grounds with many possibilities to create natural flowing movement with your graphic components. Main areas covered include: Spline Effector, Random Effector, Tracer, Sketch & Toon.
Based upon the popular theme of heraldry, this workshop will provide you with a variety of strategies to assist in developing your ideas into real world projects. Link Effectors to regular Cinema 4D objects to harness the power of MoGraph within your established animation techniques. Deform objects along a path with the Spline Wrap deformer. Animate multiple objects in sequence utilising the Time Offset feature. Main areas covered include: Spline Wrap, Time Offset, Random Effector, Delay Effector, Xpresso Sample Effector Node, Stacked Materials, Stick Texture Tag, Step Effector.
Whether you wish to recreate a realistic print style halftone effect or build a giant stadium jumbotron structure, this workshop explores the numerous options available when working with image-based source material. Combining MoGraph Cloner in Grid Array mode, explore the potential the Shader Effector has to offer. Main areas covered include: Sort Clones, Shader Effector, Color Shader, Formula Effector.
Starting with the creation of a simple logo model, then breaking it apart polygon-by-polygon, a techni-coloured interior is revealed. Lit using Global Illumination and powered by dynamic forces, watch thousands of tiny letters, each an individual light source, falling, colliding and bouncing. After this workshop the power of dynamics will be at your fingertips. Main areas covered include: Rigid Body Tag, Plain Effector, Random Effector, PolyFX, Global Illumination.
Need swarms of bees? Shoals of fish? Maybe you simply want to move with the crowd? This collection will point you in the right direction. Streaming with an abundance of opportunities, control the crowds of parameters with ease as you guide them towards your goal. Main areas covered include: Spline Effector, Step Effector, Delay Effector, Random Effector, Target Effector, Multi Shader.
Attach visible lights onto multiple object vertices and watch as your clones move to the rhythm of the beat. Channel the power of the Inheritance Effector as your objects morph from one to another, leaving a trail of ever decreasing light that flickers through the falloff. This workshop will guide you through the intricacies of some of the often misunderstood and rarely used MoGraph tools, such as the Matrix Object, Instance Object, Sound and Inheritance Effector. MoGraph Instance Object. Main areas covered include: Matrix Object, Inheritance Effector, Sound Effector, Beat Shader, Displace Deformer.
