Creating Artistic Water Drops in CINEMA 4D

In this course we are going to create an organic and visually stunning shot using the modeling and dynamics tools in CINEMA 4D and After Effects. We will utilize CINEMA 4D's hair dynamics to set up a web-like element, then integrate spline dynamics within the hair module itself. We will then composite our render passes into After Effects while integrating some of After Effects plug-ins. Finally we will achieve realistic lens effects that will give us a natural and flowing effect which will result in this serene, organic shot.
