In this series of lessons, we're going to use CINEMA 4D to quickly build up and tear down a scene. One popular technique in graphics today that you'll see in many commercials, is to quickly build up or remove objects within a scene in interesting ways. It may be a house building itself from the ground up or a car coming apart. CINEMA 4D offers a great deal of control in creating setups like this, especially when working with Mograph and XPresso. We'll start by building most of the geometry we'll need for our scene, a simple camp site. We'll use Cloner Objects and other methods to build geometry so that we'll have the maximum amount of control. We'll take a look at adding custom controls and using XPresso to set up those controls to drive different attributes of our objects. Finally, we'll key frame our new consolidated controls to create a fun animated piece. Once you're done, you'll be able set up and control your own custom scenes. Software required: CINEMA 4D 11.5.
