Here's how to create a simulated claymation animation in Cinema 4D.

In this lesson we’ll be creating a very cool claymation look in Cinema 4D. Joey originally started messing around with this look to help out his good buddy, Kyle Predki, for a project that he was working on. He needed to achieve a claymation look for some characters and this is what they came up with. And now he's going to pass along what they learned about creating this look to you.

By the end of this lesson you’ll be know how to make a shader that looks like clay and animate something that looks like stop motion, all in Cinema 4D.
