Cinema 4D Video Tutorial: Morphing Between Objects

Caleb Ward

Learn how to morph between two objects in this Cinema 4D video tutorial.

The ability to create smooth transitions between objects really makes your animation flow more naturally. Of course, getting this effect is easier said than done.

The following video tutorial was inspired by the award-winning People’s Car Project commercial that WeAreFlink made for Volkswagen. If you haven’t seen the video, check it out:

Typically, when you want to morph an object, you will actually use separate objects that morph together through a combination of motion blurs, frame blending techniques, and misdirection.

However, when you are trying to perform this action with slow morphing objects, it’s much more difficult because you can’t simply cover the edit points with fancy transitions. This is where the following video tutorial comes into play.
