1. The Easiest Bit Of Xpresso You Need to Know in Cinema 4D Leave a Comment

    In this tutorial I’m going to go over one little bit of Xpresso that does some big things! That bit of Xpresso I’m talking about is Set Driver/Set Driven. Throughout this tutorial I’ll cover a handful of examples of how to use it to speed up your daily workflow and equip you with enough knowledge to take the concept and apply it to your own workflow! This is some of the easiest and most helpful Xpresso to learn so if you’re completely new to Xpresso and intimidated by it, this tutorial is for you! If you have any Set Driver/Set Driven examples that you’d like to share, please post it in the comments!

    Thanks for watching!

  3. How to shoot your own custom 360 HDRIs for less than $360 24 Comments


    In this video, I will show you how to make your own custom 360 HDRIs to use with HDRI Studio Pack. You will need a Theta 360 camera and a new app we developed called Simple HDR.

    See the full SimpleHDR Page here to learn more

    What You Will Need

    1. A Theta 360 Camera: This camera is a lightweight simple camera that shoots and stitches 360 photos with one click.
    2. Simple HDR: I collaborated to make this app with my friends over at the excellent Built Light team. We made this iPhone app to make shooting the correct bracketed images for HDR photography very simple. Choose from Pro or Auto mode and in less than 30 seconds you have a series of photos to combine together to make a full 360 HDRI.
    3. Photoshop: Use Photoshop to combine all your bracketed photos together and save as an HDR to use in your 3D program or to archive.

    Quick Note From Nick: If you shoot your own 360 HDRIs, either with a Theta or more traditional ways let me know in the comments. We need you for an upcoming project!
