In this tutorial I’ll show you how I made the opening animation to my reel and tutorial bumps. I’ll go over the C4D Shader Effector and show you how to use it for revealing text.

UPDATE: (Thanks Thomas for pointing this out) Since I’m not using the more complicated features of the effector, but only the simple features, like fall-off and adjusting a scale, rotation or position parameter, I could have used many other shaders to achieve this effect. You could use the plain effector, shader effector, step effector and even the random effector! So, I was wrong in the video about the shader being the only possibility! Hope this clarifies things and you keep learning that in C4D there are always many ways to do 1 thing!
