Cinema 4D – Controlling Light Object Intensity with Effectors Tutorial

[Instructor] EJ Hassenfratz
[Level] Intermediate

This tutorial will explain how you can effect the intensity of light objects in Cinema 4D with an effector and how to get a “turn on/turn off” look as well as a gradual light fade on/fade off type of example.

You will also learn another use for this method to create a noise meter animation where meter bars light up and glow, all controlled with an effector. And throw a little Cappucino & MoGraph Effector action to animate the noise meter to look like it’s reacting to crowd noise and sync it with a shaking camera as the intensity builds as the “crowd” gets louder!
