Learn three different methods for animating a deformer, and then how to export the deformation animation in an Alembic cache file.

This video shows how to animate a deformer by setting keys on a deformer’s attributes, by setting keys on the deformer’s position - or an object’s position as it moves through a deformer, and by creating pose morphs. Then you’ll see how easy it is to save the animated deformation in an Alembic cache file and share it with another Cinema 4D project, or in another 3D program such as Autodesk Maya or 3DS Max.
