Car Rigging and Camera with Xpresso plz?

Recommended Posts

Hi C4D Friends

It's the first time post here, and I hope to find help.


I have an animation idea in C4D. it's talk about traffic safety. So I need to apply car rigging techniques and cameras movement in C4D, add to make 2d infographics in After Effects.


But I need to remake it with advanced animation and rigging techniques and more realistic.

So, I started to build car rigging with Xpresso, with applying these tutorials: 




So, there some face difficulty in syncing animation between cars and cameras, and I asked if there some tips and guidance or video tutorials for that? And is the exporting project from C4D with Xpresso to After effects possible?


Thank you,

Welcome to the Cafe :)


First step is to post in the right place, which isn't New Users / Beginners even if you are that ! We do have a special section just for Xpresso rigs for example, which is where I will move this thread now for you.

Ha Ha my old videos have come back to haunt me. I made these vids years ago, and later removed them from Vimeo with the intention of making better ones - but never got round to it. So they are on YouTube without my permission (or knowledge).


So fire away - what's the question ?


I had a few methods for camera sync - in this video using XPresso I take the average position of the cars and use a memory node to place the camera about 1 second behind. The camera targets the average center.

  • Just I ask How I can Add 2D Infographics (Arrows and Highlights) in after effects on the 3D project like this one 


    Is It need to make Cinema 4D tags like compositing?
