Perception's Creative Director John LePore shows 5 "Wrong" Ways to use Cinema 4D. In this presentation you'll learn the quick and dirty techniques that a "lazy" C4D artist employs to create outstanding motion graphics and Fantasy User Interfaces for films, as well as real-world UI for the Ford GT and Microsoft Hololens.

John details a process for creating 2D textures from 3D elements, add reflections in a dashboard element for the Ford GT, and use Spline Dynamics to create a FUI spiderweb element for Dr. Strange. Finally John outlines how Perception used Cinema 4D's Camera Mapping options to create dynamic camera moves around concept art and to solve a tricky workflow issue when creating the new Marvel Studio logo.
