VFX with C4D: Tank Crash Tutorial

We've posted a new VFX tutorial series by Joe Herman that shows how you can use CINEMA 4D to create a dynamic shot of a tank crashing through a wall in New York.

Learn how to:

Solve a 3D camera by motion tracking live-action footage in After Effects
Add the 3D camera and other elements into the CINEMA 4D scene
Work with the BodyPaint 3D toolset to create a custom street wall texture
Light the CINEMA 4D scene with HDR and Global Illumination
Use the NitroBlast plugin to fracture the wall that the tank crashes through
Handle collisions using C4D's advanced dynamics simulation engine
Generate the interior texture of the wall with sub polygon displacement
Create volumetric dust with NitroBlast, Pyrocluster and Thinking Particles
Composite final CINEMA 4D renders together in After Effects

This series is exclusively available to premium Cineversity members.

The groganard in me wants to inform the audience that the vehicle in question is not a tank.

It looks more like an armoured personnel carrier (APC); possibly a Bradley Fighting Vehicle.
