About This Class

In this class you'll learn how to bake and render a simple dynamics simulation to to produce a finalized mini animation!

We'll go over the regular Modeling, lighting, and texturing of course. AS well as major camera settings and render settings to give your colorized animation some realism and film-looking quality. 

We'll finish off in Adobe Premiere, where we will composite or exported TIFs and further color our footage!

Hello, I'm Patrick. Many know me as Patrick4d. I've been creating photorealistic abstract renders in Cinema4d and Photoshop for awhile now and was overwhelmed at the support and buzz surrounding my social media. My work has been featured by Adobe, Photoshop, The Motion Designers Community,  and more.

So as a thank you, I've decided to share some of my knowledge. I will be releasing a new class every other month so hit the follow button and jump aboard!
