Rob Garrett posted part one of his Cinema 4D MoGraph Fracture Object tutorial. This is really good stuff. If you like this be sure to check out his 8-part tutorial on parenting in Cinema 4D at his Vimeo page. Don’t get turned off by the title, this series has it all: metaballs, texturing, C4D/AE integration and more.
Of course the episodes go out of their way to shine a nice light on Artbeats clips, but you’re sure to get a lot of decent After Effects how-to from a guy with a lot of know-how. Steve Holmes makes excellent tutorials and his work is, well, excellent.
iTunes has this to say: “Artbeats has recruited design expert Steve Holmes of Energi Design to bring you bi-weekly video tutorials which show you quick tips for using stock footage in your projects in innovative ways. Whether you’re a novice wanting step-by-step instruction, or a veteran just looking to expand your creative possibilities, these tips, presented in After Effects, will help bring your projects to the next level.”
Since the series has ended ArtBeats has lopped them together with their other tutorials from Creative Cow‘s Eran Stern as well as many written tutorials from Chris & Trish Meyer and more. You have to flip a page or two before you see the Holmes tutorials. Download ‘em, watch ‘em here.
The headline says it all: Imagineer Systems, makers of Mocha for After Effects have a channel on Vimeo. No tutorials, at least not yet. Just a few samples of rotoscoping and planar tracking using their products. The “Text Animation” clip is particularly impressive, especially as it was made using Mocha for After Effects—one of their programs actually within our reach.
