About This Class


Hey it’s Dave from CG Shortcuts, Welcome to the Course! 

I’m a freelance 3D and Motion Graphics Artist based in London where I’ve been working and teaching in the industry for over 10 years. 

In this course I’ll show you how to create a Daily Render in Cinema 4D and Octane render.

We’ll be creating a Science Fiction scene and best of all you don't need to be a professional modeler or 3D artist, I’ll show you some tips and tricks you can use to save time and create an artwork like this within just 1 day.

Daily renders are super popular on Instagram and other social media at the moment so it’s going to be great for your online portfolio!

By the end of this course you’ll level up your Cinema 4D skills and be able to create your very own Daily Renders.  

All you need is Maxon Cinema 4D and Octane Renderer (After effects and Daz studio optional) - don't worry if you don't have them because you can download a free demo to start learning straight away

We’ll also cover everything step by step so you can easily follow along, including.. 

  • An introduction to Daily Renders
  • Character creation in the free Daz Studio app
  • Daz integration with Cinema 4D and Octane
  • Free resources you can use in your daily renders
  • The fundamentals of composition
  • Modeling props in Cinema 4D and Daz
  • Sculpting in Cinema 4D
  • Octane Volumetric lighting
  • Octane Texturing and material creation
  • Post production in After Effects
  • Bonus lesson on creating snow or dust particles

There’s also a Bonus lesson on creating snow or dust particles to take our render one step further.

Plus you’ll also get access to project files and time saving presets you can use in your artwork. (I dont supply the featured models but link to where you can get them online)

That’s it for now, let’s get started!
