About This Class

This is a great place to start if you're new to Cinema 4d!  By the end of this course I'll teach you how to create a look that is an essential tool for all designers.  We'll also cover some of the basic menus and features you'll come back to over and over again.

We'll discuss the object and scene menus.  You will learn how to create a floor, background, and primitive object. You'll also learn how to create a new gradient material and apply that to your scene.  We'll discuss how ambient occlusion can be applied to create shadows in the spaces between objects. And lastly, you will learn about the compositing tag to achieve the infinite floor look.

It may sound like a lot, but you can learn this incredibly useful technique in just 10 minutes!
