In this tutorial, I use Cinema 4D, Mograph and the Random Effector to animate a simple logo. I also show you how to texture your text with different textures for the front and sides. Finally, we animate a camera using CS Tools Easy cam and prepare our animation for render.
In part one of this tutorial, I show you how to set up a camera projected scene in Cinema 4D using a photograph.
