  1. There are way too many tutorials in this reel. I’ve seen a guy teach all those online. What were you thinking?

  2. Really nice work man. I’m excited because I may have just convinced one of my bosses to budget for a copy of Cinema4D. I really just want to get a chance to jump into this program! He asked me to show some example of how it will help out and I may just use this as one of them.

    Keep the top notch work coming!

    Beautiful Mograph Reel :D Very exciting work. When you have a chance Nick.. could you please explain very briefly how you created the NEUTRONS word formation scene.

    Thanks for all your help.

    Looks great, I’ve always been impressed with your renders – the colors look so good. I may need to get your Lighting kit soon.

    I’ve been trying to figure out how you can dynamically transition particles(I use that term loosely) between two(or more) words/objects/splines. Can you do a tutorial on how you did that cherry > 7up transition? Thanks!

  22. Awesome! Love the song to!

    I really want a tutorial on some of your older clips which I saw in this reel, which ALSO were in your Creamy Orange reel! I’m talking about the yellow arrow earth globe thing with the bridge model and all that stuff. And also the final “neutrons” clip, with the orange particle logo thing with DNA stuff punching the camera, lol.

    Feels like you’ve taught us how to make all the other clips in there, except for those two, haha! :P

    So yeah, tutorial request ^^^^

    • Hi, Marcy!
      I may do tuts on those. But for now, Ill give you a push. The Yellow spot is mostly Sweep nurbs and a complicated camera move using nulls. The NEUTRONS part is similar to the 7up spot. It’s made using the Spline effector.

      Hope that helps.
      ROCK!
      Nick

      Please, please, please do the yellow earth tut. It would be awesome.

      For the cherry 7up, i was thinking you used the inheritance effector. I guess not.\

      Can’t wait for more tuts. Nice music. And congrats on the Maxon gig. I think you’re a perfect spokesman. I wouldn’t be doing this if it weren’t for the GSG.

    Totally off topic.. I started a website with vimeo links like this blog.. All my videos are black before you hit start.. How do you get a still shot to display before hitting the actual play button?

    On your “HDRI Light Kit Pro” page, there is a place for the “Discount Code”… and I just wonder how to get it…! ;)

From now thanks a lot, i am waiting for ur reply. :)

  27. Dude, I have ALWAYS wondered how you can make lots of mograph object form or create text or shapes like in your reel!
    Have you got a tutorial on this or is it very very simple?

    • I will have that Cherry 7up tutorial up very soon. I will be presenting some of it at NAB this week. Look for the live stream.

  29. Even the simplest of your animations in Cinema 4D look so great! … I am definitely going to buy the HDRI Light kit as soon as I land a summer job!

  32. Great Reel and the song went really well with your animations. I have been creating a project that had a similar effect to your 7 UP stuff using MoGraphs Inheritance effector, I will be looking forward to your tutorial. I really liked your “neutron” build with the particles also. Great Stuff

  33. Hi,
    First What I want to say – Great Work!!
    Second is a question: Could you say something more about this yellow earth with arrows. How you made it and what tools you used.

    I’ve been trying to watch the live stream of NAB at Cineversity Live. All I get is the same video of the same guy they keep playing over and over. How do we view this? By the way, Nick, I saw your site mentioned in 3D Artist Magazine in a big expose they were doing on Cinema 4D and Maxon!

    Reply
  35. Excellent work! Big fan of your blog!

    I’m a bit off topic here (sorry!) but I was wondering if you’ve ever thought of doing some sort of fluids tutorial with C4D.

    Those tutorials are about as rare as the jade monkey… so I’ve heard.

  36. Nice Reel Nick. I have a question, how you play with the cam so good in cherry text animation? I love the cam in this one!!

    woaaaah dude that simulation stuff is rad! i especially like how u let the colored balls fall down so dynamically (is this animated by hand)…the shading is also nice…looks like some seriouse hdr shiiid. keep up the good work buddy.

    Hi Nick – I wanted to thank you for your presentation at the show – it was really great. I’m excited to start playing around with MoDynamics and super stoked about your HDR light kit!

    You were awesome at NAB. Of course all of Maxon’s presenters ROCKED! I just wanted to say thanks for everything. I don’t know how you do it all but keep it.

    Reply
  41. the cherry 7up part is reall easy, its a cloner object with a model of cherrys inside then just a spline effector with the spline been text, then to get it to change between the 2 you just key frame the strength of the effectors

    Reply
  42. Hey, excellent work! I was wondering if there is a trick to creating the glowing spheres, as seen in opening shot. Is it a material, a glow, or an object with a light inside. I can’t seem to get that effect just right. Thanks in advance.

    Reply
  43. Hi da Gorilla,

    Checking your site pretty often… great Tutorials and nice work!

    Recently I started experimenting with Cinema4D and MoGraph/Dynamics. I’m pretty new at this… but your tutorials were of great help: http://www.spreadmotion.com/?p=1104

    These are promo vids for a dutch festival called Incubate. What better use for clones than that? haha ;)

    Thanks

  44. I heard that there was an NAB discount code for city kit? is there? By the way great presentation. I learned about your blog last year at NAB and between the pro lighting kit and your blog I have improved my work-flow so much. thank you
