In this project, I entered into a new world. I need to turn the 2D logo into a 3D animation, which is something that has not been tried before. I was confused at first, facing a brand new software, I didn’t know how to start. I followed RJ’s video and put the logo in the Cinema 4D.

At first, I make the Extrude and add the colorful Materials on the logo, and they looks more cute than before. Then I started to explore how to make them move, to make the animation. I spend a lot of time on exploring the animation because I didn’t know you needed to record to start moving. When I understood the principle of motion, I began to be interested. I broke the logo apart and added a different trajectory to each letter.

I like my final vision, and I will explore more motion in the later.
