Post by Stefan Surmabojov at CGtuts+ : “In this tutorial we are going to create a Valentine’s Day themed animation in Cinema 4D and After Effects…. Use particles and forces in Cinema 4D, as well as MoDynamics and Effectors to put everything together to create our final animation. Finally we’ll add materials, light and render the scene before finishing it up in After Effects with some compositing and post effects.”
