CINEMA 4D R12 Essential Training with Rob Garrott introduces artists to the CINEMA 4D workflow, using CINEMA 4D as an important part of a toolset that includes Adobe After Effects, Photoshop, and Illustrator. The course explains the key foundational concepts, such as polygons, textures, and rays, that are crucial to understanding exactly how this 3D application functions. It also includes practical techniques for creating, selecting, and transforming objects, working with splines, polygonal modeling, and adding materials, lighting, and camera views for a fully realized 3D image. Exercise files are included with the course.
I hope you enjoyed the Cinema 4D R12 Essential Training series and even though we just scratched the surface of this amazing program, I'm sure you got a feel for just how deep it is, but also just how easy it is to use. Now, if you're wondering where to go next with your Cinema 4D experience, I would definitely recommend checking out the Designing a Promo series that I created for lynda.com. In this series, you're going to learn how to create a 15-second network style promo. A promo is a fancy way of saying a commercial for a network or TV show. In this series, we'll cover the entire creative process from start to finish, Everything from sketches all the way to the finish piece.
You'll learn how to model a realistic shark. You'll cover final rendering in Cinema 4D and compositing in After Effects. If you're unsure about After Effects and how it fits into the production process, I'd recommend checking out the After Effects CS5 Essential Training series by Chad Perkins. In this series, you'll learn all the in and outs of this incredibly important program. Once you're comfortable with After Effects, check out Chris Meyer series on Cinema 4D and After Effects Integration. Now, I come at some of this in the R12 Essential Training series, but Chris Meyer goes in a lot more detail. Once again I'd like to thank you for checking out the Cinema 4D R12 Essential Training series and I hope you have as much fun with this program as I've had over the years.
