Product Modeling and Rendering in Cinema 4D

I will take you through the process of Modeling, Texturing, Lighting and Rendering a high poly lipstick container in Cinema 4D. Lessons include, box modeling, understanding Hypernurbs, creating and applying materials, setting up quick preview renders to adjust lighting, and finally how to enable Global Illumination and tweak settings for your final high quality product render.

Low Poly & GI baking

Here I  will walk you through how to model a low poly tree in Cinema 4D and how to achieve that paper look that is becoming quite popular these days. He’ll then move on and show you how to bake Global Illumination, so that render times can be significantly reduced and your scene will be production ready.

Create a Stylized Snowman and Xpresso Driven Trees in Cinema 4D

In this tutorial we’ll create a stylized snowman and some Xpresso-based Christmas trees, it’ll be fun! First, we’ll go over the modeling of the snowman using some basic sculpting for the scarf and the hat (pre C4D R14 tools). Next, we’ll cover setting up materials with layers. Finally, we’ll set up the lighting and make some customizable Xpresso trees to add in the background.

In the final part of the Snowman series, we’ll harness the raw power of Xpresso to create a snow covered tree for our scene. We’ll use a series of Xpresso nodes to build a system that will allow us to dynamically change the tree’s size, scale and segments on the fly, without the need to re-model or manually adjust settings.

Quick Tips for Rendering Animations with Cinema 4D

File formats, aspect rations, object buffers etc…

Here I will go over how to render out animations from Cinema 4D, and discuss things like aspect ratios, the pros and cons of different file formats, and the benefits of using object buffers, and why they’re important when it comes to compositing. This is targeted at people who are just getting into animation, and is based on common mistakes people often make.

 

Traffic lights Cinema 4D

Traffic lights are a little feature of Cinema 4D that allow you to hide and unhide objects. This Quick Tip will teach you some lesser known methods of using them to speed up your workflow..

Rig and Animate a 2 legged walker in Cinema 4D

In this tutorial Aleksey Voznesenski will guide you through the entire process of creating and animating a two-legged robot using Cinema 4D. You will begin by modeling the robot using a reference image and then move onto rigging, animation, lighting and rendering in part two.

Xpresso Intro tutorial

Originally published on cgtuts+

In today’s tutorial, rigging artist Aleksey Voznesenski takes us through the basics of Cinema 4D’s Xpresso scripting system. If utilised correctly, Xpresso can be an incredibly powerful system allowing you an amazing level of control over your rigs, animations – even the UI itself. If you want to speed up your workflow in C4d and you’re not using Xpresso, this tutorial is for you!

If you have any questions, post em here, because i don’t get notifications on that youtube video, since its on cgtuts+ account.
