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.

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.
