Class Description


What you'll learn in this after effects class:

Learn the basics of creating and animating 3D graphics and inserting them into After Effects projects. You’ll use Cinema 4D Lite, a limited but feature rich version of Maxon’s award–winning Cinema 4D software.

In this hands-on course, you’ll learn different techniques of creating and working with 3D models. You’ll also learn how to create and assign textures, create animations, and round–trip to After Effects using the Cineware effect. This class is great for After Effects users who wish to expand their skill set and gain an understanding of working with 3D assets. Whether you are a motion graphics artist, compositor, 2D animator, or just interested in adding 3D to your After Effects work, this class will offer powerful and flexible tools to create 3D based motion projects.

Cinema 4D Lite

After Effects includes a free copy of Cinema 4D Lite, which is what you’ll be learning in this class. This class does not cover the full version of Maxon Cinema 4D, so you do not need an extra subscription. The Lite version included with After Effects is powerful, and you’ll be able to produce great content with it.

This course has a prerequisite: 

  • Knowledge of After Effects equivalent to our After Effects Bootcamp is required.
