Very interesting resource for all those who work and study in the field of motion graphics.

Sean Kothe shares this fantastic tutorial where he shows us how to create a composition in motion graphic, animating a character in Low poly in Cinema 4D by applying the motion capture data BVH files, and then he explains how to interact with the particle, going to interact with After Effects and use the Plexus particle animation tool.

Learn how to create an insanely amazing 3D particle world using C4D and Plexus including particle trails, 3D landscapes and a motion captured actor.
