Cinema 4D to Element 3D Workflow: Prep Drone Model & Materials for export to AE & Elements 3D
In this lesson, you will prepare the drone model to be exported from Cinema 4D to Element 3D. You will use CV-SmartExport to quickly export all our separate groups out of Cinema 4D and import them into Element 3D.
In this addendum, learn some great tips for the Cinema 4D to Element 3D workflow.
1. Linking up C4D files inside of Element 3D when first launching the project file in After Effects.
2. Easily update geometry in C4D that will update quickly in Element 3D
3. Alternative method of linking textures like PSD's and Tif's using Custom Texture Maps in Element 3D
In this final lesson, you will work with groups and anchor points to set proper rotational pivot points for the camera and cameraSwivel arm. You will also add custom controls to make it easier to animate the drone model in After Effects.
