Kevin RamserNoob wants to do a turntable animation in Cinema 4D
by on Aug 30, 2013 at 7:06:28 pm

I'm VERY new to Cinema 4D. I've imported a 3D model of a human head. All I need to do is export a video of that head spinning around once. I want the head to rotate from 0 to -360 degrees over the course of about 4 seconds so that the exported video will loop continuously. How do I do this? I'm sure it's very simple, but I can't find a tutorial that tells me how. Thanks!

I have a turntable tutorial here:

Turntable Tutorial

I used a helix in my tutorial, but you could select a circle instead.

Hope it helps. Let me know if you have questions.

I did use a circle... been a while.

One thing to be aware of is that if you are going to loop the animation...Cinema auto eases the keyframes, so you'll get a speed up at the beginning and a slow down at the end. If you plan on looping you'll need to change the interpolation of the two keyframes.

As you'll see in the comments, there are several ways to do this exact thing. You could animate the circle rather than the position of the Align to Spline tag.
