About This Class

As a result of the course you will know how to place a cool 3D title into a real life footage. You can use this for a wedding video, a nice trip summary video or what important video you made. and I will show you how to do it, and you can have your own mini 'movie title' with a 3D text.


We will place 3D texts into a real footage in Cinema4D and rendering with Arnold renderer
In the course I use C4DtoA 2.4.0 /core 5.2.0.0/
Please consider, that other versions may has different settings.

The course includes background sequences, which you can use for the Cinema4D camera tracking mode and a 360 panorama footage for defining realistic lighting for the video.

Downloadable link to the background sequences: link

what we are going to do in this course step by step:

- At first we will use the background video footage that you can find in additional materials.

- We will generate a 3D scene from this 2D footage in Cinema4D.
  So we can rebuild the original scene of the footage.

- Using with test 3D elements we will define the Skylight working with the
  additional 360 panorama picture.


-
We will define the ground in Cinema4D, where we are placing the 3D unit.

- We will define the virtual Sun representing the original one. Its position and angle as well. 

- After building the scene we will change the basic elements to our Texts or Title.

- We will use Arnold materials to add cool look to the 3D units.

- Finally we will render the composite scene with Arnold. 

I will share all my tips and tricks during the process, but if you missed anything,
please feel free to ask, I am here to teach!
