There are some common render settings that everyone should be aware of in order to get an image out of Cinema 4D. In this video, learn what these settings are and where to find them.
- [Instructor] When the time comes…to get work out of Cinema 4D there's some…common key Render Settings that you'll need to know.…So let's come over to our render settings…and we can click this button here…or press the shortcut, Control or Command + B,…and we're in the standard renderer…looking in the Output tab, and we have our…frame size set to 1280 by 720.…If we lock the ratio we can then change this…to 1920 and the height will be calculated for us,…or if we want to do a low res render…we could just drop this down to 640…and again, the height is calculated for us.…
Our frame rate's really important…and it needs to match what we have over here…in our project settings, so they match which is great.…The frame range is the output really.…So we're currently rendering a single frame,…the current frame, and that's the current frame…that's under the playhead, and you can see…it change as I move through the timeline.…If we want to render all frames just choose this…and the preview range is quite interesting…because if you have the mini timeline set up like so…
Here, learn key foundational concepts, such as spline modeling, lighting, and materials, which are crucial to understanding exactly how this 3D application functions. Instructor Andy Needham covers practical techniques for extruding shapes; working with MoGraph tools such as Cloners and Effectors; and adding lighting and camera views for fully realized 3D motion graphics. Plus, find out how to integrate assets from Adobe Illustrator, composite multipass renders with the After Effects and C4D workflow, and use the Takes System to try different materials and settings and export your projects in the exact sizes and resolutions you need.
