Paper Tear Effect with Cinema 4D & After Effects

Robert Hranitzky made a great breakdown of how he made this torn paper effect for the GenArts Reel Intro using some scanned paper, the bend deformer, Cinema 4D and After Effects. I met Robert and saw him present at NAB this year. I loved his direct teaching style and his great eye for design and sexy compositing. The tutorial world needs more like him.
