Jan van IJken's Becoming was recently posted as a selection on the National Geographic Short Film Showcase. This film shows the development of an alpine newt beginning with a single cell. This class is inspired by the film. Check it out here: https://video.nationalgeographic.com/video/short-film-showcase/00000168-ee01-dc18-a17a-ff59a33f0000
Animating cellular division can be extremely challenging. Luckily, some recently added tools in Cinema 4D make it more manageable. For this class we will look at the first stages of division from a single cell to two, four, then eight. We will be using new tools such as the Volume Builder and Fields.
The class is designed for intermediate Cinema 4D users, but new users should still be able to follow along.
Check out what we'll be making!
For your class project, create your own short animated version of Cellular Division. You can mimic this one, or choose to break out and do your own thing.
Try and incorporate the tools and techniques you learned in this class.
I can't wait to see what you create!
