  6. thanks,
    i’m really looking for a tutorial about rendering animation in HDRI quality, without the flickerings.

      @Alex:

      Did the flickering occur when you rendered with global illumination? Try to avoid GI for animations and use e.g. the mograph skydome for reflections and lighting.

      Often GI isn’t necessary at all and can be compensated using a good color Correction with AE or a different renderengine like VRay.

      Your renders will be way faster too!

    This episode was really awesome compared to the last one. I like it when you get deep and explain design processes, motivation, improvement. I think thats the main thing people are interested cause it concerns everybody, maybe even creative directors…

    I love this line: “You may do a1000 clicks, a pro would do about 15 – thats the difference”
    ->That motivates me to go on with experimenting, cause it can get sometimes exhausting and dissapointing.

    You did a good move by letting addidtional people do tutorials on your site. It gives greyscale more variety and takes it to the next level.

    As always, thumbs up for your ideas and energy to push this site forward:-)

  10. Hey Nick, I was listening that you may start a forum, if you would end up doing this I would love to help you out as a moderator if you were looking for someone.

    I like the idea of using the comments as a forum. You could post some general Q&A posts like “Q&A – After effects”, or “Q&A – Cinema 4d lighting” etc.

    The nice thing about this method is, as you mentioned, that other talented people could help out as well.

    PS: I’d like to see some more tutorials on color grading in Photoshop… not just the technical aspect (I know how to use curves), but you thinking when tweaking.

  12. I like what you said about ‘building machines’ and running things though them. I never really connected these two things. But I suppose I spent a lot of my time when I was younger trying to rearrange the parts in the mousetrap board game;

    when I was in my teens I became obsessed with chris sawyer roller coaster tycoon game….Luckly I have managed to translate tho addictions into a job.

  13. I’m new to C4D (about six months) but have been doing freelance MoGraph for about ten years. GSG has helped out tremendously as I transition from Maya to C4D. I look forward to meeting Nick sometime at SIGGRAPH. I’ll buy you a beer.

    Sorry if this has already been suggested, but what if you took questions a day or so before your live casts? You could go through them, see trends, set an agenda, save some for later shows, etc. You could then show your viewers the list at the beginning of the show as a tentative itinerary. That would help curb the shouting match that is currently going on during your show.

    Thanks again for your help! Love the tutorials!

  18. I think having the new guys on here is a great idea, the one problem i have is the quality, perhaps this s when i view it they have only just come out but sometimes its just unseeable. I would also reccomend robert ledger for expresso that guy is insane.

    hey nick I really need your help when rendering an animation in cinema 4d. when I am in the picture viewer my whole scene is grey and does not render the animation it sticks on one frame and says preparing. hope you understand what I mean. thanks

  20. Would love to see some character animation tutorials on here! Or at least some recommendations on where to find some. There don’t seem to be any available for C4D (except for the super-boring, barely-understandable, five-hour-long monstrosity that comes with R10).
