According to me, all the 3D Softwares are the same but the interface is different only. Its just the matter of understanding the softwares if you are smart enough

What is better C4D or 3ds MAX!???
manz
09/21/2012
There are some differences, some say 3ds max is better, but C4D is more easier and user friendly... they are both powerful programs, and deliver same power depending on the user's creativity and skills ;) I recommend C4D for beginners, get 3Ds MAX if you can learn the complexity way fast

Very good video tho thnx! ;)

To Paul. I saw in another turtorial on AE,he used for Trapcode Particular, PNG format 3D picture of a ball made on a 3D program and paricular started emitting that ball. Also a light named Emitter and many other stuff. I dont use that kind of 3D models with particular yet, but some other cool stuff its rly nice

Dominick

I'm also 13, we guys need to stick together and make things that are in are reach!
I use Blender 3D, and it is like a breeze to me.

I am now learning more complex programs like these, but I think I need to go for a bigger challenge! I am now going to move on to 3ds max.
Hope you get good at this!

andrew, i only started using ae about 3 months ago, and thanks to this site, my ftv teacher has told me im better then some of the students she teaches at uni, so thaanks maate :)

first off love the tutorial! SECONDLY, could you do a tutorial on how to render a cinema 4d file to AE or AP. plz
Dominic
06/26/2011
This is simple enough. in the c4d (r12) render settings you simply set the render options to a photoshop/AE type like PNG or TIFF and also make sure you have ALPHA CHANNEL selected before rendering your image/3d text

@ michael Re: How to Export C4D Projects to After Effects

Hopefully you get the idea or someone can explain it better, but simply put, just go to your "Render Settings" in C4D (CMD B on a Mac) and goto save and you will see under "Composting Project File" you can export your project in .aec format for After Effects.

Good Luck :)

Your tutorial is hilarious especially your "as you can see I don't know what I am doing" comment ! haha! I am proficient with After effects and the adobe CS, and am starting to learn C4D. I found the program annoying in many ways, especially with its nomenclature to things (eg. the extrude amount they call it "movement", or rendering a track matte they call it "object buffer. argh! It is like learning a new language), but maybe the 3d world is like that....? (I have no experience with 3d before C4D)

Anyways, I enjoy your tutorial as well as all the other afx tutorials as well. Great job! Thanks a bunch Andrew!

05/03/2009
Hey It's Richard here, and do not believe, that brasilian guy, i am your greatest fan:)
I tried at least 10times to use programs, like AE, or C4D, but failed always. You changed my life entirely. At last I can use both programs and getting better day by day. Only problem with this program is that it's impossible, to stop practising and that will lead to loose my wife:)
Kust (half-)kiddin'.

My question is that, how can I import 3D tesxt into After Effects?

Big Thanx for helping us and readin' and good luck in the future!

04/29/2009
hey andrew very nice tutorial

if you know how to do it please help

"Hey, Andrew what's up?plz can u add some 4d cinema tutorials about making 3d bullet"

Arlend,

Andrew has a great 3d bullet tutorial called "The Bullet". You can buy it and download it. It covers exactly what you need not only in C4D but also in 3Ds Max and Blender.

Have fun!

Andrew,
You are the best among the tutors for video effects.
The BEST regards from Kazakhstan, Atyrau City.
I've couple of questions to you.
How much time should I need to learn all tutorials for free using as professional,
If I start your course from the begining?
I can use this programme pretty well.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thaks again,
Nurasyl Nigmetov.
Bye-Bye!!!

Instead of dropping the bend onto the plane. Make a plane object, bend, and a null. drop both plane and bend into the null. Now you have more control over the position or rotation, if you choose to move the plane and bend.

Ok, "tw" Use the explode modifyer, if you don't know how to use it, watch this quick tutorial I made on the explode modifier. The video and audio quality are low, but I just work with what is very cheap and FREE! ; ) as do most blender users I am sure : ) I am trying to find someplace to put my videos for the quality to be better, but you can easily follow along in low quality.

it is my first tutorial, please tell me what you think

Andrew, I love all your tutorials and I am GRATEFUL that they're free...no complaints here. I have C4D, 3DMAX, MAYA and Houdini...modeling is modeling...most professional 3D apps have great modeling tools...in the end it all boils down to these things: creativity, 'render patience', shaders, materials and lighting...Mainly materials and lighting.

Andrew continue with the great work...you've helped me to become a better filmmaker and VFX artist and I am grateful!
