I am looking to create something like this:
Software I have access to are C4D, AE and Maya.
Initially, I would be satisfied with getting a line to move like this to my audio track. Then I think I can do the rest in trapcode. I believe this talented artist used Houdini to make this (or at least thats what someone in the comments said).
Appreciate any direction as I been tinkering with C4D all day and unable to get what I need.
