Explore the core techniques you need to know to create 3D models and animation with the latest version of Cinema 4D.
- Hi, my name is Andy Needham, and welcome to this course on learning Cinema 4D, Release 19. In this course I'll be showing you how to create an animated logo from scratch. I'll start by taking you through the key concepts of working with Cinema 4D so you have a firm foundation of how the software works. From there, we'll get to know the interface, and I'll show you some useful preferences and ways of setting up your project. Then you and I are going to work together as we plan our project and get the logo imported from Illustrator ready for the next stage in the process.
I'll take you through the modeling of the logo and animating the camera, through to adding lights and materials, and tips for keeping our project organized. Finally, we'll render the result and look at ways for taking it further with compositing. So if you're ready, let's begin.
