In this tutorial, we’re going to be looking at the animation style of the movie 300 Rise of an Empire. We will make this title style using Cinema 4D for the modeling and animation of the logo with the stormy sky. Then in After Effects, I will show you an interesting compositing technique for completing the animation sequence with color correction, smoke, and flash lightning in the background.

This project is a concrete example of how the integration of Cinema 4D and After Effects can generate an incredible result. At the end of this tutorial, you can learn how to draw and animate your own title with Cinema 4D and After Effects. The actual example of the “300 Rise of an Empire” title is just for training purposes and is not to be used in a personal project without permission from the original creators.
