Film and television clients want strong openings for their shows. Adding a custom motion-tracked logo to the opening credits can add an extra burst of energy as well as reinforce the themes of the program. In this course, Andy Needham shows how to take existing footage, track it with the CAMERATRACKER node found in Nuke X, and import the data into CINEMA 4D. There, you'll learn how to use C4D's MoGraph tools to drive the motion of the logo toward its final resolve and match the lighting with the original background plate. Plus, learn how to bring it all together with color grading and optical lens effects back in Nuke.
