Hud Hexagon in Cinema 4D & After Effects
In this course, Nick Harauz will take you through using the Cloner Object inside of Cinema 4D to create a seamless Hexagon Floor and animated Hero Objects. After rendering our Cinema 4D project, we will bring this into After Effects and use 2D shapes, Replicators and Glow to add stylistic accents to the design. We will also explore using an After Effects Glow versus the Glow from Maxon One's VFX Suite.
The assets used in this course are available for download.
