Masterclass Curriculum


Breakdown of an infinite dynamic looping animation

Learn the fundamental elements that go into creating a looping animation that features dynamic collisions, from setup through to render and comping.


Rigging a dynamic rag doll

This lesson is a dummies guide to making a dummy! Learn advanced techniques needed to create a ragdoll with Cinema4D’s rigid body dynamic system.


Rigging breakable cars

Here you will create a dynamic proxy for the structure of the car which will also make use of connectors and feature breakable parts.


Setting up the crashing scene

This is where the fun begins! You’ve already spent time carefully making these cars, now you will make them break! In this lesson you will set up the crashes and match the timings of these to a continuous camera move.


Finishing touches

Onto lighting and rendering. Certain techniques are needed when lighting and rendering the scene in order to make it loop more seamlessly.


Make it Loop!

Now you will comp the render in After Effects to complete the infinite, seamless loop effect.
