In this Cinema 4D video tutorial, we’ll show you how to make your text more dynamic by giving it a 3D cascading effect.

Odds are the majority of your 3D projects involve manipulating and using text, but instead of having boring static 3D text, why don’t you spice it up using some effectors? Effectors in Cinema 4D work very similar to animation parameters in After Effects, so if you have some AE experience it should come pretty naturally to you.

In the exclusive video tutorial below I will demonstrate how to create 3D cascading text. The Cinema 4D fundamentals covered include:

  • Adding Fillets
  • Working with Cameras
  • Using the Random Effector
  • Using Shaders
  • Working with Keyframes
