In this tutorial, I will show you how to create this carrot bouncing scene using a combination of MoGraph and a handful of Cinema 4D techniques. I will create an array of carrots using a cloner, add squashing and stretching with a deformer, while using two effectors to control it alongside the jumping motion. I will also show you a way to use a single instance of the carrot model, in case you want to change it, and then I will break up the linear appearance of the animation by adding a bit of randomness to it. I will then complete the animation by adding a shader effector that hides some of the carrots based on a graphic, so to reveal a Cineversity logo made of carrots. Lastly, I'll show you how to use MoGraph, XPRESSO, and a proximal shader to create procedural holes in the ground that align with the carrot positions. Before we proceed, and in case you're not familiar with some of the tools we will use, please watch the Cineversity videos linked in the description text below.
