When working in CINEMA 4D there are some core concepts that are essential to understanding how the software functions. In this video, learn what forms the very foundation of this software.
- [Instructor] When you open Cinema 4D for the first time…the interface may be a bit daunting.…All these buttons here,…but let me be clear about something,…you do not need to know what every button does…to get started and make something cool.…There's some aspects of this program that I haven't touched…because they're just not part of my process.…They're not part of the way I work.…But I know enough to be dangerous…and by the end of this course,…you will too.…If you ever get stuck,…C4D has this great Help system.…You can just come up to Show Help…and find pretty much anything out.…
So, for example, it's deeply integrated into the interface.…So you can right click on something…and just be jumped right…to the point in the Help documentation…and that should answer your questions hopefully.…It's usually my first port of call…when I don't understand something…or need some clarification.…When you start using C4D it really encourages you to…play and tease out different parts of the interface.…You know, you can some up here and make a cube.…
