3D Title in Cinema 4D + Free Camera Animation Rig for Signal

3D Title

,Nick Campbell from Greyscalegorilla walks you through making a 3D movie title that looks like it’s a bit Game of Thrones inspired. GOT inspired goodies are everywhere this week! He creates the title with Motext in Cinema 4D coupled with Redshift and with some Greyscalegorilla tools. Even though these tools are used, you do not have to have these plugins to follow along with the tutorial.

By the way, he has two versions of the tutorial. This is the longer of the two tutorials. Subsequently, the truncated video is below, so scroll down if you’re short on time or attention span.
