Assignment

Follow the lessons of the course and make your own likeness in a simplified 3D model, rig it, and animate it talking.

We'll model a 3D character using the modeling and deformer tools in Cinema 4D. Then we'll rig and animate our character and add lip sync with an audio file. And finally we light and render our animation for final compositing in After Effects.
Lifetime access to the course videos (3 hours and 19 video lessons), 19 x C4D Project Files, 1 x Audio file and Exclusive support.
You need Adobe After Effects which comes with Cinema 4D Lite. You do not need the standard version of Cinema 4D, all the tools we need can be found in Cinema 4D Lite. Don't worry if you don't have these yet as you can download a free demo to start learning straight away!
Cinema 4D Lite comes with After Effects so you shouldn't need any plugins.
A basic level of Adobe After Effects should be fine for this course.

No new announcements this week.
