About This Class

In this course, you will learn all about Cinema 4D and create something fun in the process! By the end, you'll have a real, visible product to show for all your hard work.

This is an introductory course, and we will cover how to build an animation that loops, all within Cinema 4d.

I'll show you some basic tools within the software you will use time and time again. We will create a simple scene using primitive objects, discuss the mograph cloner for creating copies of objects, add dynamics and real-world physics to our scene, learn how to apply lights and basic textures, and create a seamless looping animation, great for social media.

You'll also learn tons of tips and tricks along the way like: how to easily navigate the interface, how to cache dynamics, and how to add lighting and texturing with the Octane Render Engine.

Please let me know if there are any questions! Thanks for joining me.
