About This Class

In this in-depth motion graphics tutorial you will learn how to use vector shapes for 3D motion graphics. Making use of existing vector artwork for 3D modeling is a huge advantage for designers. It makes the workflow much easier, saves time, and allows the designer to start animating a lot faster in the production process. This new tutorial will change the way you use vector graphics.  

In part 1 of a 4-part series you will learn about project planning, 3D modeling, texturing, and the basics of 3D animation.

I think it's more or an intermediate to Motion Graphics. Even though there are references to a beginners tutorial, I think you have to have an intermediate skill level with both Cinema 4D and Adobe Illustrator to take on "The Designers Guide to Motion Graphics"
