About This Class

Spline Modeling Fundamentals in CINEMA 4D - Everything you need to know about spline modeling in CINEMA 4D

This class teaches you the spline modeling techniques using the spline tools and functions available in CINEMA 4D. This class first introduces you to the splines primitives and then shows you the functioning of spline creation tools such as the Sketch, Spline Smooth, Spline Arch, and Pen tools. Then, class jumps right into teaching you how to create 3D objects using splines, extrusion, sweeping, and lathing, and how to work with the other spline functions/tools/commands available in Mesh menu.

This class includes 5 stand alone hands-on exercises to hone your skills. Also, there are 4 practical challenges included that will help you to assess your knowledge gained in the class.

When you have completed this class, you will understand the tools and techniques available to you for creating 3D models using splines. The working files are available so that you can follow along with me throughout the lessons.

I'll be regularly adding more content to this class so keep coming back.

Note: If you want to follow along, you should have CINEMA 4D Studio R19 installed on your system. However, this class is also compatible with R18 version of CINEMA 4D.

The key features of this class are as follows:

  • Splines and splines creation tools are explained.
  • Splines Command and functions explained.
  • Generator objects explained.
  • Includes 5 stand alone hands-on exercises.
  • Includes 4 practical challenges.
  • Tech support direct from the author.
  • CINEMA 4D files, images, and other resources are available.
  • Access to each tutorial’s initial and final states along with the resources used in the tutorial.

What knowledge and tools are required?

  • Before you start this class, you should have CINEMA 4D Studio R19 installed on your system. However, this class is also compatible with R18.
  • You should have basic knowledge of CINEMA 4D.
  • You should have desire to learn.
  • Willingness to be awesome.

Who should take this class?

  • Students who want to learn how to use Cinema 4D
  • Students who want to create 3D models in Cinema 4D
  • Digital artists
  • Motion graphics artists
  • Indie game developers

What will students be able to do after taking your class?
