I make a few suggestions in the tutorial about plug-ins you can get for C4D. Alone, you won't get much in the way of realistic trees, so look into those.

Best,

Hello Aharon,

You keep me glued to these tutorials... it's great! I have a question for you though. I came back to this tutorial because I need to figure out how to make some 3d animated trees for my film. If you have a minute, check out http://freakdaddyproductions.com/videos/Scenes_01-15_for_susan.mp4

from about 1.47 to 3.07 you'll see the area where I need animated trees to help sell this effect. I'm not asking for a tutorial, just a point n the right direction. I have Cinema 4d, but I'm not a pro..... Any suggestions would be great... thanks.

Hey Aaron, I must say I truly love and need this series that you started. I can't wait for the lightning! I am working on a project of mine where I need good lightning flashes and bolts. I have been using the wiggle expression linked to some lights in AE to try to produce realistic lightning flashes. I'd like to see how you go about accomplishing this. If you could, go to http://www.myspace.com/freakdaddyproductions and view my first video entitled Edgar Allan Poe's The Tell-Tale Heart the trailer. It's a short film I'm working on based on the story. Let me know what you think, cuz it's truly taking me forever to finish. I shot the whole thing on green screen. Keep up the great videos!

Want to learn how to create advanced visual effects? Learn how to use mocha AE to track your shot and add advanced visual effects to live action footage inside Adobe After Effects. mocha can help you track shots that would be hard to track using traditional 2D point or feature trackers because it is a PLANAR TRACKER. A planar tracker uses planes and textures to track as opposed to points or groups of pixels. This allows the tracker to stay on track even if your shot contains motion blur or a very shallow depth of field. mocha AE comes included with Adobe After Effects and is available since CS3 and there is no reason for you not to use this awesome tool to make it easier for you to track your shot, replace screens or rotoscope!
