Animate a Simple Character in Cinema 4D

In this 2 part tutorial, I’m going to go over my workflow for how I animated this little sushi character in Cinema 4D along with some handy tips and tricks I use for my little animated GIF characters.

In Part 1, I’ll cover how I created & animated the face by using tools like Spline Shader & the Pose Morph Tag.

In Part 2, I’ll show you how I animated the sushi dude and use Deformers to add secondary animation to make our animation more dynamic, interesting, and playful.

If you have any questions, post them in the comments!  Be sure to post any examples of you using this technique in your projects as well!  Thanks for watching!
