Creating Dynamic Space Animations in 3D

Professional VFX and mo-graph artist Jonathan Winbush demonstrates how to create simple 3D space scene animations. He did it by using Cinema 4D, Unreal Engine, and After Effects. Additionally, all of the assets used came from ProductionCrate. These include 3D Space models, Sci-Fi Sound Effects, and our brand new Space HDRI’s.

First, he used Cinema 4D to place the camera, asteroids, and ship in 3D space. Next, he brings the project into Unreal Engine for adjusting the 3D materials & HDRI. Finally, he brings the rendered .EXR file into After Effects to composite and adjust the different passes.

You can see Jonathan’s full breakdown on the WINBUSH YouTube Channel. Be sure to follow him for more 3D content and tutorials. Sign up for a ProductionCrate membership to start download our space VFX assets.
