Designer, animator, and director Julia Siemon shares how she uses Cinema 4D to create compelling character animation. She begins her presentation with an cutscene excerpt from her upcoming VR project "Fragile Attraction". She follows this up by demonstrating how she created a dramatic moment in the piece with the help of the Voronoi Fracture and Cloth objects. Afterwards she breaks down how she used simple animation loops and the Motion Clip system to create a 30 sec character animation as a solo artist. Next she covers how to layer 2D animation on top of 3D animation with the Spline Shader. She closes out her presentation by demoing how she used the Takes System in a recent project for "Movado" in order to address client needs on the fly.
