- In this series of lessons, you will be provided with the foundations of working inside of MotionBuilder. In this series of lessons, we'll learn the foundations of working inside of MotionBuilder. We'll begin by familiarizing ourselves with MotionBuilder's interface and how to load in files and other assets. We'll learn how to move objects in 3d space and learn how to work with its Transport Controls for playing back animation. We'll learn about its keyframing tools, like the Key Controls and Fcurves window, for creating, polishing, and cycling animation. We'll then discuss Characterization, which is the process of making your characters ready for animation and retargeting. We'll learn how to work with its advanced Control Rig and how to use its Pose Controls to build performances faster. From there, we will learn how to work with its robust animation layering system, how to set up cameras, and how to create real-time movies for previews. This course will provide you with the solid foundation you need to comfortably integrate MotionBuilder into your production pipeline to create animation faster and easier.
- In this tutorial we will learn the basics of animating in CINEMA 4D. Throughout the tutorial, you will be guided through the CINEMA 4D intuitive animation tools. Our objective will be to build a solid foundation by familiarizing ourselves with core animation components and techniques. We will start by covering the CINEMA 4D animation preferences and how to record animation. We will discuss path animation, how to bake motion from procedural animation and optimize that data, as well as how to edit and blend animation non-linearly and non-destructively with its robust Motion System. We will explore animation layers, how to modify animation in the timeline, we will learn techniques for seamlessly cycling animation, and work with Xpresso, its node-based expression editor. By the end of this tutorial, you will have the foundation required animate comfortably in CINEMA 4D.

What makes a 3D space battle even more spectacular? Compositing in Adobe After Effects. Learn to take the render-pass sequences of the spaceship versus asteroid scene you created in part 1 of this series and recombine them in After Effects. Author Lee Lanier shows how to integrate shading and color in your render passes, animate the flames emitting from the spaceship, and create a particle simulation that makes the asteroid explosion seem more realistic. You'll also learn to replicate glows, lens flares, film grain, and camera motion along the way.
