Corporate work – Using Element 3d in After Effects – 3d models built and animated in C4d.
This set-up allowed the client to change content on the screens right up to delivery. Only having to render once through AE is the game-changer here. If I had done all this in C4d then it would have been a nightmare, rendering out each time a change was requested.
Even with that workflow, I would have to animate the content for the screens render them as multi frames for C4d – then render out of c4d – then import into AE – do the compositing work – then render out again just to get the final piece for approval.
Even though in C4d it was only 2 sec/frame – times that by every time the client needed to change something that adds up really quickly.
1 week from start to finish with several changes.
