    Joshua Video look good but it not a frog kind of like a one dog hellhound.

    • Well the task was “frog view” so open Cinema4D if you have it and change your actual view to Cameras -> Frog and you’ll see. :)

      If you don’t have C4D than let me explain: the perspective used in Joshau’s video ist actually the Frog View perspective.

  2. Wow, so many great entries! I feel kind of stupid for not coming up with something fun now :-P .
    Great submissions!
    No matter what the theme is next time, I just will participate. (I say this every month, so let’s just wait and see)

  3. I like the winner and the hypnofrog video very much.

    But I hate those 5SP Videos that just display the name of the topic.. There’s nothing creative about it.

    • I agree they’re not the most interesting ones to watch, but a lot of the users who submit those types of animations are usually just starting out using C4D or After Effects or whatever – it may even be their first real attempt to create anything at all in an application alien to them. If that’s the case, the fact they’re learning a new technique (no matter how ‘easy’ and simple a technique it may be for a more experienced use) or just getting their heads round the panels and menus for the software is to be applauded.

    Some great vids out there! I like the hypnofrog most, but I gotta say. There is no frog view in any of the videos!! the winner is bird view! I didn´t participate tho..

    • Most of them are made using the “Frog View” camera that is built into Cinema 4D. That is where the theme came from.

    Love these projects! I think I’ll take a stab at the next one.

    Random question: Nick, can you make your learning links on the side nav. to open up a new browser window? I hate being taken away from the site when I’m trying to…

  10. Thanks for the kind words everyone, glad you liked my entry! I got a sneaking suspicion I might have got a mention on here when I got my daily Vimeo email with “Your videos have been viewed 3576 times…” – When the numbers spike like that you know something’s up :)

    But it is rendered in a frog view, the subject of this 5s

        I didn’t get that until yet.
        If you know the perspectives, this camera view is kinda crazy.
        This View has nothing to do with the actualy one.
        But I’m disappointed that cinema 4d has no real view from a frogs (or worms) eye.
        They should fix this.
