It's absolutely crucial that you understand those relationships before moving on with CINEMA 4D. There are three primary relationships in CINEMA 4D between objects and it's parent, peer, and child. And there really is no better example than our own solar system. Now, in this animation you can see we've got a sun, each of the planets lined up in rings outward from the center.

The sun is the parent of the entire solar system, and each of the planets are children of that sun object. And then each of the planets in turn are peers of one another. Some of the planets have moons. The moons are children of the planets, and the moons are peers of one another underneath each of those planets. That really is a great illustration of how the parenting relationships behave inside of CINEMA 4D. The sun moves around the galaxy, towing along all the pl...
