How to Use Automatic Keyframing in Cinema 4D

How to Use Automatic Keyframing

For those that have watched my tutorial on keyframe interpolation, this is the next step. If you haven't seen my keyframe interpolation tutorial, check it out here.

Cinema 4D has a multitude of different attributes that can be keyframed, from the size of a cube to the time rate of an ExplosionFX Deformer.

In this quick tutorial, I will be showing you how to activate automatic keyframing, and exploring what that actually means, its advantages and its occasional pitfalls.

You will take a simple cube, and use automatic keyframing to change its size, position and even colour!
