In this CINEMA 4D tutorial, we will learn the tools and techniques that will allow us to begin modeling in CINEMA 4D. CINEMA 4D offers a number of options for creating 3d geometry ranging from traditional polygon modeling tools to powerful spline based techniques. Because of its many pieces, a Swiss Army Knife will provide a great project for us to begin building different types of shapes in CINEMA 4D. We'll look at dealing with different types of geometry available to us. We'll use various tools to begin modifying polygon geometry by adding edges, extruding out faces, and smoothing the geometry. We'll also explore several methods for adding geometry using splines. We'll explore CINEMA 4D's very flexible, hierarchy-based workflow that will allow us to make modifications to many parts of our model after we've created them. We'll also touch on using Cloner Objects, spline effectors, and working with nulls and pivots. In building our knife, we'll cover a wide array of modeling tools that will allow you to quickly get up to speed building your own geometry in CINEMA 4D.

In this CINEMA 4D tutorial, we'll be guiding you through some of the essential lighting tools available in CINEMA 4D. Getting acquainted with the core lighting tools and features of CINEMA 4D is an important skill for anyone who is getting started with this powerful 3D application.
This training will begin with us learning about the various types of lights found in CINEMA 4D and how to precisely control your light attributes and find the right mixture of physical accuracy, and your own artistic desires. We will also explore some of the specialized attributes found in certain light types, we will learn about the different types of shadows that can be utilized within CINEMA 4D, and explore the unique characteristics of each of these shadow types.
We will also learn how we can use volumetric lights to add a sense of mood and atmosphere to our renders, along with many additional lessons covering tools and topics that are designed to give you a strong introduction to the lighting and rendering capabilities of CINEMA 4D.

Genre: eLearning | Difficulty: Intermediate | Language: English | Instructor: Pierre Derenoncourt | December 23, 2013

In this series of tutorials, we will learn how to create a 2D looking motion graphics piece that is created primarily in CINEMA 4D.The style of motion graphics with very flat textures is easy to achieve in a 2D software like After Effects. However, if you want 3D deformations and complex camera animation in 3D space, After Effects is nearly impossible to use. We will use CINEMA 4D to achieve the motions that we want, and overcome those 2D constraints. Using CINEMA 4D for this process takes the guess-work out of trying to achieve this look in a 2D application.

In this tutorial we are going to use CINEMA 4D to build a stylized female model from scratch. Stylized 3D characters are a staple of 3D production, especially in film and tv. These characters can be any number of styles, but are typically more cartoony than realistic. Building these kinds of characters is a great exercise in organic modeling and it is also quite fun. CINEMA 4D can be a great solution for building characters and it offers a number of tools we can use to create our model. We will start out by using some reference images to begin building our female character with some simple polygon objects.
