Cargo shuttle animation

This cargo shuttle is only a a small part of a larger scene I’m currently working on but I think props are quite important so I took some time to make this.

I started with a rough sketch, which I then coloured and set in front of a starry background. I Iiked the result and started working on the 3D model. The animation was interesting since it was the first time I worked with XPresso in Cinema 4D (the rotating light was made to move with an expression).

 

Tutorial: Making a paper house animation in Cinema 4D – part 1

This tutorial will show you how to create a paper folding animation in Cinema 4D. It will cover the basics of creating a paper house and animate its folding. Of course there are several other possibilities but this one is quite handy for texturizing later on since you really make the whole model from one piece.

The final result will look like this:

Sorry about the bad audio quality :)

Basic steps:
1) make a plan, draw your house on paper
2) create a plane in Cinema and cut out the parts you don’t need
3) select areas and shift their axis (hold F10 in C4D R12 and earlier)
4) fold them while setting keyframes (use auto keyframes and point mode)

A more advanced version could look like this:

Next week: part 2 of the tutorial where I will discuss how to make paper textures.
