The course was a great introduction to a complicated bit of software. Some of it was a very high level overview-- I would have liked more depth and to know why he did certain things, but again, this is an intro course. I also wish he didn't always draw a new cube for every single project, it would be nice if so many (not just this one) online teachers had more elements prepared for their lessons and didn't always make a squiggle or cube each time. Overall very well presented, quite a few examples, and a good explanation of all the major components and functions of the interface and software. Thank you!

It was a really breezy course which talked about the basics in depth, really enjoyed being part of the learning :)

Yes, I think it's a perfect match. I know of C4D and have worked with it, but I never got the basics of the program. So, this, in turn, is very rewarding.

This beginners Cinema 4D course is super very easy to follow. I like that I can pause, rewatch and I don't feel overwhelmed. There is tons of information, and even with newest 2019/2020 version, it's still applicable. Like this a lot.

It is so clear and nice ! I'm a dude with zero experience in 3D , So I find this extremely easy to understand ! Good job !

I have a few issues and remarks about the course:1. Most of the lessons consisted merely an introduction of some tools; some kind of a "recorded manual".When I purchase a course I hope to get something more than a free youtube tutorial, like exercises or ways to use the tools for a specific project, but unfortunately I've received very little of this.2.It seems that the lessons were not edited or planned at all - the lecturer said several times that he was wrong and should have done it in some other way, not something I expect to hear in a paid course.3. Lots of things changed from the old version he is using, and as a newbie, it made me check in other youtube tutorials to find the tool he is talking about; not a big deal but has some impact on the learning flow.Overall, this course is OK for students who are looking for a basic Cinema 4D manual, but maybe it is something that can be found on a free youtube tutorial, in the current state it is offered.

For a beginner, I enjoyed the course.

it a very good and fast course, the only problem is that its brief. Hope more lectures and tutorials be added in near future

Trs satisfait. Ne manque plus qu'une transcription en Franais pour tre parfait.

06-15-2019 I have completed a good portion of the course. This course touches on different features of Cinema 4D. Although, if you have Cinema 4D Lite that comes with the Adobe CC AE version you will NOT be able to do many of the exercises in this course. He is using a version that is on the Upscale of Cinema 4D. So you will be lost and get annoyed that you cannot participate in these lessons. If you wanna spend $9.99 on the course and watch to learn and do a little bit then go for it. I would NOT recommend this course to anyone that ONLY has the Cinema 4D Lite version that comes with Adobe CC. Update above... So far the course has been very basic in explaining how to use various aspects of the Cinema 4D Lite. I was not for sure if this course would give me more exercises to do and real-life examples so I took a chance. I still don't know and hoping this will get a little better as I go forward in learning.

I like the way the course is flowing

Amazing course. Wish it could show more contemporary designs and animations, but the essentials are well covered.
