Course Description

In this course you will learn the process of creating a 3D robot in Cinema 4D. We will start with an empty file and work our way up to modeling, texturing, and rendering a 3D character that looks awesome and is animation friendly.

We will get the most out of the different tools that Cinema 4D offers, implementing different modeling techniques as well as a recycling method that will help you save a lot of time in this and any other 3D project you work in the future.
Then, we will texture our character using both, stock materials that Cinema 4D comes with, and materials that we create ourselves.
Finally, we will use a few HDR images to lit the final scene, and make some amazing renders.
This course focuses on creating the 3D character you can see in the promo video, but you can use the techniques you learn here to create any other robot you want.
I'm confident that at the end of this course you will have a solid understanding of the 3D modeling process and you will be able to start creating your own 3D characters. Who this course is for:
  • This course is for anyone interested in improving their Cinema 4D skills.
  • This course is for 3D sudents who want to take their skills to the next level.
  • This course is not for complete 3D begginers, although they will also enjoy and learn a lot from it.

Yes! The teacher is very good and articulates clearly. Doesn't hassle, doesn't hurry. He's easy to follow and his style of teaching is pleasant and logical.

Bis jetzt bin ich sehr zufrieden. Aber es stimmt schon, was die anderen Kommentare sagen. Manche Schritte werden nicht erlutert, was als Anfnger sehr verwirrend sein kann. Trotzdem ist dieser Kurs machbar und es werden hier wichtige Schritte fr das Modelling vermittelt und das Endergebnis sieht viel versprechend aus.

Lecturer goes too fast, covers a lot of topics. A good understanding of the program helps in following along with the topics. Some helpful resources would be to add a step by step pdf of the process. It would be nice to go over some rigging concepts in the next tutorials for this robot.

Great course! He moves fast, but that is what the pause and rewind buttons are for. This course is packed. You really get your moneys worth.

Moy shows off some great modeling skill in this course. He moves quick and adds a lot of detail to help you appreciate all the subtle intricacies that make your render stand out. He spends a little too much time narrating and should spend more time explaining why he is making the choices he does. Think of this course as more of a narrated job shadow with an exceptional modeler. If you are new to modeling like me, you're going to get something out of this course. Good work, Moy. I hope you make more of these!

i am really enjoying this course thanks for it.

Great tutorial. Plenty of tips and tricks that can be used on other projects. Easy to follow along. Good instructor!I only wish he could go more in-depth sometimes!

Nice tutorials from Moy.. I enjoyed both that I took. I was a total beginner and now, I at least I understand some concepts in C4D and hopefully I am able to create some stuff. Sometimes in this course you have to do something automatically but you dont know why its like that. But thats okay, you can always google it :)So thanks for introduction to 3D modelling

Nice basics how to build a three-dimensional character (optimize meshes, organize axis, merge objects; edge cuts, loop/ring-selections, hierachrchy management of the components etc.). Good explanations.Some section are a little bit to quick; and sometimes I missed a visual picture a the lessons start to image what steps has to be done (and I like to know more about reducing the meshes and baking textures/objects...).(May be it's helpful to have some first experiences with the interface of cinema; I was using 2 monitors to see the video and my app)

really good course so far. Learned some new technics that arent really covered in many basic c4d classes but are really simple to use and make your life easier.Awesome class, really learned alot, Thank you Mr. Moi :)

I love Moy's teaching style! Very easy to follow, and helps to free me up in my modeling style.

very good explanations and intuitive course structure. however i find some parts a bit too quick and makes it hard to follow. this is my first time experience with cinema4d though, it may be the reason as well.
