Cinema 4D Tutorial – You decide : Target or Constraint?

I think everyone is familiar with the Target Tag in Cinema4D. However, did you know that the Constraint Tag offers a target feature too? The Aim parameter of the Constraint Tag is far more feature rich than the Target Tag. It is certainly worth checking out.

If you are not familiar with using the Constraint Tag, then head on over to Vimeo to watch this short tutorial as an introduction to the benefits of the Constraint Tag over the Target Tag.

Hopefully it will point you in the right direction . . . Boom boom!

    You just opened a whole new world of targeting for me! O_O
    You are absolutely right that the constraint options far exceed the target tag opts…
    Thank you very much ! 🙂
