Creating a Disco Party Animation with C4D and After Effects

August 6, 2013

“In this tutorial you’ll be creating a full motion graphics 3D animation for a disco party. You’ll start by creating some basic models and deforming them. We’ll dig quite deeply in shading to achieve some detailed and organic textures. Finally, we’ll animate all the elements in an attractive way and create a rotating camera to follow the whole scene. We’ll finish up in After Effects where we’ll add some sexiness to the animation.” – Daniel Lorenzo of cgtuts+
