Wrapping Effect to c4d object
by Bobby Lang on Nov 4, 2014 at 4:42:04 am
Hello there (longtime lurker, first time poster)!
I have a simple rotating cube I made in c4d imported into my after effects cc14 project. I then added a lightning-y fractal noise effect (using the lightning bend preset) and knocked the black out with luma key so i can just have blue fractaly lightning moving across my cube. However, the fractal noise is flat upon the cube, so it does just look like a layer on top of footage of a cube.
How can I make this look like the lightning is actually part of the cube? Is there a way to make the effects comply to the edges and planes of the c4d cube? If not, what distortion tools should I use to map the effect to the bends in the cube?
