Typography Animation

During the lesson, I learnt about how to create Typography Animation in Cinema 4D. We looked at a person who created Typography Animation called Conan O’Brien, kinetic Typography. He did a speech when he left NBC and this was put to a 3D design and it was animated.

I have chosen the film ‘Finding Nemo’ and I picked the typography:

“Wow, the Big and blue…..”

“What’s it like”

“Ummm….. Big….. and Blue?”

“I Knew it”

I have created this typography in Cinema 4D.

This shows the different types of Cinema 4D tools I used: MoText, Spline, Cube, Extrude, Camera, my sound and material.

I have added MoText and Extrude to link together to make  3-D letters.

The images show that I have added MoText and Extrude to link together to make  3-D letters. I have put the word horizontally and vertically to make it look more interesting and made the word go around and around to make it look animated .

The Typography of “the Big and blue….”  I have made the word “the” in small letters and the word in “Big”  in large letters and also I have added some words in “blue.”

The images show that I have put camera target typography animation  moving around and repeating the word.

I found this interesting and quite easy to animate, though I found it difficult to get to grips with the camera target as I would zoom in and out to much making the typography all fuzzy. What I would like to make better is to animate more, improve the sound and create more typography to improve on the viewing experience.
