I am new to the 3D world and so far have basic/intermediate Adobe Dimensions and After Effects experience. I want to eventually learn how to build a detailed bar and animate it breaking like this:
It says that Cinema 4D, Houdini and After Effects was used for the project. Can anyone shed some light on why Cinema 4D was used as opposed to other programs like ZBrush or Blender? Would this be a preference or are there some things that were done in C4D particularly that other programs cant do?
I am assuming that the break effect was done in Houdini and the slow motion was done in After Effects (feel free to shed any more like on this with what else was used). Was Houdini used because it can produce detailed TV quality breaks or is that also a preference?
