Mixing 2D and 3D elements from CINEMA 4D and After Effects is a snap with CINEWARE. In this installment of Mograph Techniques, EJ Hassenfratz shows you a workflow for creating 3D objects in C4D and seamlessly compositing them inside a 2D project in After Effects, while using the CINEWARE plugin. He starts off in C4D, preparing the 3D objects and materials and giving them a basic "2D" look, before showing off more creative techniques for emulating a 2D style with bend deformers and Spline Wraps. Then he explores how to use the Dynamics and MoGraph modules to add real-world physics and animation to your objects. Finally, EJ shows you how to composite everything, 3D and 2D elements alike, in After Effects using CINEWARE.
