Jumpstart your Cinema 4D skills by learning how to make abstract 3D shapes
Created by: Jesper Sandell
Produced in 2020
What you will learn
- Learn how to make 3d elements in Cinema 4D that are great for adding color and flow to any design, such as screen wallpapers and more
- Learn the fundamentals of Cinema 4D with a hands-on, project-based approach
- Learn a flexible procedural workflow that allows you to create a variety of shapes and designs with ease
Overall Score : 96 / 100
We learn best by doing, so this is a hands-on, project-based course.
We're going to work through 4 fun projects from start to finish. We will create everything within Cinema 4D and won't use and pre-made elements.
We will use a procedural workflow that doesn't require modeling. That means that all settings remain editable and we can change the entire look by just adjusting a few sliders. It makes the whole process of creating and experimenting fun, flexible and powerful.
The design elements we'll create are well-suited for either a 3D or a 2D workflow.
We'll cover the fundamental concepts in the first project. And then we'll build upon what we learned in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th projects.
We'll reiterate the most important aspects for a deeper understanding and add new skills and techniques as we progress.
Here's a glimpse of what we'll cover
Working with parametric objects
Exploring how geometry and complexity affect the appearance of objects
Working with deformers
Looking at how displacement works and how to optimize for best result
Working with the noise shader
Making complex shaders by using the layer shader
Lighting a scene with 3-point lighting
Working with cameras
Rendering with the Physical and the Standard Renderer
Making a seamless loop animation
Color grading and post-effects in Adobe After Effects
Udemy offers a 30-day 100% money-back guarantee. So if you for any reason at all find that the course wasn't for you, you can get a full refund.
However, I think, and hope, you'll find this to be an efficient and fun training to get started with Cinema 4D.
Go ahead and enroll, and I'll see you in the course.
