Standard”>cinema 4d orbit camera rig

From Hello Luxx

This free camera rig for Cinema4D is a really handy little setup with which you can quickly and easily create some nice orbiting moves around your objects using very few animation tracks.
The hierarchy of nulls allows you to control the heading, pitch and bank around the pivot point and also from the camera axis, independent of each other. There is also control for the z-depth position of the camera so you can easily push in and pull out as you rotate around.

NAB 2013 With Maxon, Adobe, And Greyscalegorilla


Check out this video Nick Campbell of Greyscalegorilla just posted from NAB 2013, announcing the new 3D pipeline between Adobe After Effects and Maxon Cinema 4D. The new version of After Effects, After Effects CC (Creative Cloud), will be released in June 2013, featuring C4D Lite built in for free.

From Maxon, “With MAXON CINEWARE in the new After Effects your compositing workflow will be catapulted into a new dimension. Import native CINEMA 4D scenes as assets in After Effects and utilize CINEMA 4D’s powerful multi-pass workflow as layers to achieve your vision. Update the CINEMA 4D scene at any time and you’ll instantly see the results inside After Effects. There’s no need to wait for long renders or manage intermediate files because the CINEMA 4D render engine is built right in After Effects. Your 3D workflow has never been easier.”
