  2. Capturing a Slow Motion Dynamic Tennis Ball in Cinema 4D 2 Comments


    In another AskGSG, dahasi brings over some real life slow motion reference from Frank Noschese’s Youtube channel. We’ll play around with settings in Softbody dynamics to match the motion best we can, then slow down the overall scene by reducing the Dynamic Time Scale. Finally, we bring in a pre-made tennis ball from the C4D content browser and use the Mesh Deformer to translate the motion to the final model.

  4. Sub Surface Scattering, Blurry Reflections, X-Particles, Physical Render and Blurry Transparency. Let’s Get Ready To Render! 6 Comments


    SSSSKin

    In this AskGSG, Docshibi asks us how to make this medical render by John Liebler. We try some different techniques ending up with a render heavy but workable texture using SSS, Blurry reflections, and transparency. We use X-Particles to create the skin effect and the connecting links.

  5. Turn Text Into A Tropical Island Scene 27 Comments


    TropicalIslandText

    In this AskGSG, we get asked by MadnessPro how to make a Tropical Island scene out of text similar to this beautiful spot by Animo – 3D & VFX Studio. First, Chris builds the island and water using the Displace Deformer and textures it with gradients. Next, Chris adds trees to the scene using a simple model and Hair. Finally, Nick tweaks the textures and lighting for the final render.
