See multiple techniques for creating and animating threads in C4D.

Jan Sladecko explains the process and technique behind several projects created in Cinema 4D. First you’ll see how simple PSR keyframes and kitbashing combine for dramatic effect in a promo created by The Mill for IMAX Transformers: The Last Knight. Next Jan offers a shot-by-shot breakdown of a promo The Mill created for the FX Networks show The Americans. The promo emphasizes the tangled web of deception in the show via interwoven threads, and Jan shows several techniques for creating and animating the threads. Finally, Jan shows how he added dynamics into motion sculptures in a project created with AixSponza for Nike Tech Fleece.
