Cinema 4D R17 - Using the New Lens Distortion Tools

When you're motion tracking and compositing 3D objects into footage, working with footage shot with a wide angle lens can be a bit tricky. Now with the new Lens Distortion tools in Cinema 4D R17, dealing with lens distortion is no problem! With these new tools, you can warp your 3D scene to account for the lens distortion present in your footage, add the lens distortion as a profile during rendering, and pull a lens profile from existing footage. This works great with the camera tracker updates in Cinema 4D R17. Learn how to use the new Lens Distortion Tools in the video above!
