  1. How to Create Pixel Art Renders in Cinema 4D 1 Comment


    In this tutorial, we’re going to have some fun creating pixel art inside of Cinema 4D, Cinema 4D Lite, and After Effects!  First I’ll cover the super easy workflow to turn your 3D compositions into pixelated 8 bit style renders directly in of Cinema 4D without any need to bring into Photoshop or After Effects.  Then, I’ll show you how you can use Sketch & Toon to create Nintendo style 8 bit looks devoid of 3D shading.  Scroll down to the bottom to watch another version of my tutorial where I’ll show you the workflow Adobe Creative Cloud users can follow utilizing Cinema 4D Lite and After Effects.  Happy pixelating!

    If you want to learn more about Sketch and Toon, be sure to check out my Creating Motion Graphics with Sketch and Toon course on lynda.com that is a comprehensive walkthrough of all the features in Sketch and Toon or the Cel Shader check out my quick breakdown of Sketch & Toon outlines in this tutorial and the Cel Shader in this tutorial.
    I also have collections of useful Sketch and Toon ready 3D models in my Sketch and Toon Model Packs that you can turn into 8 bit art that you can find out more about here: Sketch and Toon Model Pack that you can find out more about here.

    If you have any questions, be sure to post it in the comments section and if you create anything cool using this 8 bit workflow, I’d love to see it so be sure to share it with me on Twitter!  Thanks for watching!

  4. Creating Swirly Patterns with X-Particles 21 Comments


    I needed to replicate the look of a Houdini particle system”Swirly Trails” for a client. I jumped right into X-Particles and started coming up with these interesting patterns inside of Cinema 4D.

    In this Tutorial you will:

    1. Create multiple designs and patterns fully driven from X-Particles

    2. Texture the object using Octane Render and Cinema 4D

     

    Below are select frames we will be able to create from the tutorial:
