Create Animated Patterns With Cinema 4D & After Effects

Motion Graphics Designer Dennis Wei Covers Some Cool Techniques for Creating Animated Patterns With C4D & After Effects

Creating animated patterns? You could just build everything within Cinema 4D using the native mograph tools there. You could also create patterns using After Effects. Using both Cinema 4D and After Effects together provides a flexible workflow, more compelling than each application on its own.

Motion Graphics Designer Dennis Wei walks through some techniques for creating moving patterns or animated textured backgrounds using the strengths of both Ae and C4d. The methods come from Brett Morris’ NAB 2017 talk on Building Custom Tools for Scalable Production Techniques, so don’t forget to check that out.
