How would you recreate this in C4D?

Recommended Posts

I'm learning C4D for use of motion graphics. I've used Blender in the past but I find C4D easier for this type of work. However, I came across this tutorial for Blender which I would like to recreate in C4D. What I'm looking for specifically is how make text take shape of hexagons like shown in the beginning of this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBOuigtl6s4

 

I've been messing around with Shrink Wrap deformer as that is what I'm using in Blender, but I'm not getting the desired result. In Blender I can choose to project on a single axis (Z in Blender, Y in C4D). I can't seem to find a way to do that in C4D.

 

If anyone can point me to the right direction, I'd really appreciate it. Thank you!

Honeycomb Array Cloner with Shader Effector I reckon...

I would stop looking to replicate the way Blender would do it, and go with the tools Cinema gives you instead. The cloner really is ideal for this.

mograph to lay out the hexagons and a shader effector with your image map to lift them up.

  • I was already using the mograph cloner for the hexagons but I will give the shader effector a try. That was something I had not considered yet so I appreciate the the suggestion.

     

    Thank you!
