THE PROBLEM: Animated cameras often look “CG” and robotic. They lack that subtle human imperfection and correcting this with built-in tools can be tedious and time-consuming. Vibrate tags don’t cut it and the “Motion Camera” is way too cumbersome.
THE SOLUTION: GorillaCam takes your existing camera in C4D and instantly adds that human touch. With a few clicks, your camera feels more natural and realistic and your animation is instantly more engaging.
COMPATIBLE WITH: CINEMA 4D STANDARD RENDERER • PHYSICAL RENDERER • ARNOLD • REDSHIFT • OCTANE • AND MORE…
WHAT IS GORILLACAM?GorillaCam is a plugin for Cinema 4D R16 and above. It is designed to work with your existing animated (or un-animated) camera. Its purpose is simple. GorillaCam makes your camera feel like a real person is behind it, not some cold, dead machine.
GorillaCam can smooth out a boring linear camera move, add subtle (or not-so-subtle) shake, automatically overshoot targets, and even rack focus with subtle imperfection.
WHO IS IT FOR?This plugin is perfect for anyone that wants to create more engaging shots in Cinema 4D but doesn’t want to hassle with complicated camera rigs. Every scene has a camera, make yours unique with GorillaCam!
SMOOTHING AND OVERSHOOTGorillaCam’s smoothing feature can transform even the most jank camera move into a buttery smooth Steadicam shot. GorillaCam’s Overshoot feature allows the camera to overcompensate in both position and rotation to simulate large-heavy camera rigs.
SHAKE SYSTEM AND JOLTThe GorillaCam Shake System can instantly make your camera more engaging. This fully art-directable feature has three speeds of shake in both position and rotation. Need a shake to happen at specific times? Use the Jolt system! It adds even more imperfect nuance at specific times or intervals.
TARGET AND ZOOMWith the Target and Zoom tabs you can easily create lifelike camera’s that follow objects around your scene or even a UFO across the sky. Complete with overshoot and shake settings of their own, you can quickly create cameras that feel less CG.
FOCAL DRIFTFocus overshoot allows you to easily simulate a camera operator searching for the right focus or add some “Focus Drift” to create add overall imperfection to your focal distance.
HOW DOES IT WORK?Think of GorillaCam as a filter that you attach to your original camera. You feed GorillaCam a pre-animated (or still) camera and that becomes the “reference” camera. That way you are free to add as much overshoot, smooth, and shake as you like without destroying your original camera.
