How to use Depth of Field, Motion Blur and 3D Camera Properties in Cinema 4D

A great thing about working with Cinema 4D Cameras is that you can recreate realistic effects we would see in real cameras, such as Depth of Field, Motion Blur, and other camera properties. Tackling these camera properties starts with some understanding of how actual cameras function, so in this video I cover how these aspects work in physical cameras, and then outline how to create the same effects in Cinema 4D.

In this Cinema 4D Camera Tutorial, learn tips on working with real camera properties in Cinema 4D R16, such as Focal Length, Aperture, Depth of Field, and Motion Blur. Achieve great Cinema 4D camera results by combining these tips with the previous tutorial about Creating Cinematic Camera Animation in Cinema 4D.
