If you are a Premium Member of the lynda.com library, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this course. The files are located in folders numbered by chapter and video with a brief descriptor of the main subject. These names may not match the video titles exactly, but they will use the same keywords. Inside of each folder will be a CINEMA 4D project file. You may also see an example subfolder, this contains uncompressed versions of the example images and animations that you see in a particular video. The CINEMA 4D project files represent the starting point for each video.
Open them up if you'd like to follow along in real time. Your render times will likely vary from what you see on screen. One: because we are probably using differently configured computers, and two: because especially long renders have been time compressed in the finished training movies. If you don't have access to the exercise files, you can follow along with your own assets. Let's get started.
- Modifying depth of field
- Animating rack focus
- Using blurry transparency to create frosted glass
- Understanding global illumination
- Setting up HDRI lighting
- Optimizing render sampling settings
- Preventing over-/underexposure with color mapping
- Using negative lights to selectively darken parts of scenes
