Water Logo reveal is an exclusive new way of presenting your identity for those who ever wanted to achieve realistic water effect. This template is made using only Cinema 4D native tools, and with the help of After Effects it became even more fresh and colorful.

This template is created to be fully customizable and easy to use even for beginners. Video tutorial goes step by step trough all parts of the workflow. It fits to any logo, whether it is square or rectangular format, regardless to customizability of camera movements (select and drag camera with its path to any other position of X Y Z)
