Dynamic LED Light Show – Cinema 4D Tutorial

In this MAXON Cinema 4D motion graphic tutorial we are going to be taking a look at how to create a dynamic LED light array in Cinema 4D. This technique was used by real life LED light show engineers. They built the setup in Cinema 4D and animated the lights. This information was then sent back the the physical LED array and the show performed as it did in Cinema 4D. In this video, we show you how to generate the same effect they did with the physical array!
