  1. Hud Landscape in Cinema 4D & After Effects

     

    In this motion design course, instructor Nick Harauz will take you through creating a HUD landscape with the help of Cinema 4D and After Effects. We'll start off by creating a loopable rotating landscape in Cinema 4D through a non-traditional method with Volumes. We'll then export our landscape as an AEC file and then stylize inside of After Effects using a variety of Effects.

    The assets used in this course are available for download.
