How to Create an Animated Bell in Cinema 4D

CG Shortcuts shows how to create an animated bell in C4D using keyframes and dynamics.

Simple animations can add so much to information screens. As an example, CG Shortcuts’ Dave Bergin shows how to create an animated bell that you can use as a call to action that can entice people to subscribe. Dave walks through creating the bell from beginning to end, including modeling to animation, to rendering.

If you are just getting started with Cinema 4D, this tutorial offers a foundational look into the 3D workflow and shows how to create the bell animation using the vibrate tag along with dynamics in C4D to do much of the heavy lifting with animation.

As usual, Dave lets everyone download the free project file too so you can use it in your motion graphics work.
