In this tutorial, we'll begin a two-part project constructing a cool looking news intro composition. In part one, I'll show you some texture techniques, as well as using a combination of Mographs's Plain Effector and Delay effector to achieve some really smooth, really nice text animating into view. I'll also introduce my Softbox preset for Cinema 4D that I constructed inspired by GreyScale Gorilla's (no legal issues here - 100% self made).

"Master Metadata for Post-Production." http://www.larryjordan.biz/sem/webinar_2010b.php#mar02 Metadata can be used for tracking media content, usage and rights management, but metadata – log notes – can also drive post production by automating tasks that aren’t a part of the creative process.
