Introduces MoGraph, a toolset that allows you to model and animate objects without keyframes, and shows how to use MoGraph to quickly get your characters up and running.
Introduces particles (used to simulate effects like snow, sparks, fog, or fire) and dynamics (which allow you to define how objects interact with their environment).
Shows how to lend 3D objects color, transparency, and life with materials, textures, and lights.
Covers the basics of rendering images and animation and compositing those elements with effects in a single movie with CINEMA 4D.
Introduces two CINEMA 4D modeling techniques: HyperNURBS, or subdivision modeling, for creating smooth rounded objects, and sculpting.
Introduces the CINEMA environment and illustrates the importance of the object hierarchy.
Covers the basics of the 3D modeling toolkit in CINEMA 4D: splines and polygons.
Focuses on the basics of animating in CINEMA 4D, including setting keyframes, moving the camera, and adding movement and interest with deformers.
