About This Class

Have you been wanting to learn Cinema 4D but you're not sure where to start? If you have an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription, then you have Cinema 4D Lite and you can get started learning now. This is a great chance for designers, artists and enthusiasts to expand their skillset! 3D titles are an exciting way to add quality to your print, web and design projects. In this class we’ll learn how to take 2D vector art and turn it into a more dynamic, movie-quality title. We’ll be making a simple title in Cinema 4D (or creating a design in Illustrator), converting it to a 3D model, adding detail, texturing, lighting and rendering out a final image. Alternatively, I’ll show you how to use After Effects to export a still using Cinema 4D Lite. From there we’ll color correct and tweak in Photoshop for final use.

If you want to learn Cinema 4D, but get bored of long fundamental lessons quickly, then this is for you! It really encouraged me to continue to learn, because I did a decent looking image in a short time and also had fun.
This was an awesome tutorial that covers a bit of After Effects, Cinema 4D, and Photoshop. Great beginner's tutorial for those who want to learn more about C4D. If you subscribe to Adobe Creative Cloud you have access to C4D Lite included with After Effects. This is a perfect way to begin using it!
