Element 3D & Cinema 4D Cloth Tutorial

In this tutorial you will learn to create a cloth simulation with Cinema 4D. Then we import an animated OBJ file sequence to After Effects using Element 3D and create interesting patterns using multiple instances.


  • Generate an animated cloth simulation inside Cinema 4D
  • Export animation as obj sequence
  • Import sequence to After Effects with Videocopilot’s Element 3D
  • Create an abstract animation with multiple instances of the obj sequence
  • Add a background and light the scene
