Tutorial #02 – Cinema 4D Camera Mapping

By | Tutorial | 28 Comments

In part one of this tutorial, I show you how to set up a camera projected scene in Cinema 4D using a photograph. then in part two I show you how to Using the External Compositing tag and AEC export for transferring 3D information from CINEMA 4D to After Effects.
And the third part is dedicated to compositing in After Effects, using Optical Flares Plugin for the lamp post.

Please watch the short video below to complete this tutorial!

Just a small correction concerning “How to use projection man”
In this tip i show how to use only one camera for all layers to create a Projection.

Camera Mapping allows you to project a texture (in most cases a photograph) on some simple geometry to create a 3D object that can be used in more then one camera angle. Of course the angle is limited but small movements are possible, which is often sufficent. This technique is based on recreating the original camera postion, angle and optical settings. If you have precise information on this you can use it directly, but in many cases some adjustment by sight will suffice.

Here’s some examples of using images with basic geometry, from Video Copilot Blog.

I create and animate this title in cinema 4d using MoText, then I made it editable. I use After Effects to composite image sequences rendered from C4D.

Use

  • Matte Painting & Texture images prepared in Photoshop
  • Trapcode Particular & Mojo for Color Correction
  • Footage – Action Movie Essentials – Video Copilot

Compositing

Compositing is the combining of visual elements from separate sources into single images, often to create the illusion that all those elements are parts of the same scene. Live-action shooting for compositing is variously called “chroma key”, “blue screen”, “green screen” and other names. Today, most, though not all, compositing is achieved through digital image manipulation. Pre-digital compositing techniques, however, go back as far as the trick films of Georges Méliès in the late 19th century; and some are still in use. (wikipedia)

After Effects

Adobe After Effects is a motion graphics application that allows users to animate, alter, and composite media and add effects both in 2D and 3D environments.
