How to Create Audiovisuals in Cinema 4D Using MoGraph


Have you ever wanted to create your own audiovisuals for your music or someone else's music, or just fancied playing around with designing motion graphics to sound? Then check out my latest tutorial on creating audiovisuals using Cinema 4D's MoGraph tools.

Recently I headed down to London to Splice Festival (check out my Splice Festival report) where I attended a workshop on creating AV with C4D and a live VJ set - both run by Colin Sebestyen. This really inspired me to have a go at creating some of my own audiovisuals in Cinema 4D.

In this quick tutorial, I'll be showing you how to create your own ‘AV Sound Cube' using the MoGraph Cloner, plus how to animate it using the Shader and Sound Effectors.

But we don't stop there. We also animate a camera around our scene to make it really eye-catching. And finally, we add a material that not only changes along with the sound frequencies, but also reacts to the object size too.

The great thing about this concept is that it can be used to design many different, unique audiovisuals. So get creative!

Download the Cinema 4D Demo using the link below – but be sure to use Studio or Broadcast, as this tutorial needs the MoGraph toolset.
