don’t forget about exclusion/project- C4D quick tip

Many times you may want something to show in the reflections but then other things to not show. Using a compositing tag can allow you to “exclude” things in reflections, also similarly you may want lights to light some things but not others, in this case you can exclude the items in the projects tab of the light properties. In this sample scene I was playing with HDRI maps and wanted the Sky object to show in the reflections of the spheres, but not the background/floor, my floor was slightly reflective and the HDRI image looked like crap on the background/flood, adding the background/floor object to the exclusion area of the sky compositing tag made it so the sky showed up where I wanted it but not on the background/floor.

Broadcast Graphic workflow

Broadcast graphic workflow from ITV Teacher on Vimeo.

I take a lower third full swing, modeled in C4d and rendered out as a TIFF sequence, brought into After Effects to render out as a QT.mov brought into Apple motion for some text and behaviors and saved as a Final Cut Pro master template.
