    Nick, what do you think of V-ray for Cinema?
    I’m thinking of getting it. I have Maxwell render and it’s really good but not very fast…
    Is it worth the doe?

      It’s bloody fast but is lagging behind the max etc versions. A new version is out is out soon which will include extra bits and bobs. Maxwell delivers amazing results (I think the best) but I still think vray delivers better and faster results than the c4d renderer.

    • Vray Shits on C4D advanced renderer. Go with it, I use it all the time

    Hi there Gorilla.
    I know based on what you have shown in the past (like recreating nice ads etc) that you have all the skills to get a little more creative with C4D i.m.o. I don’t want to disrespect or nothing because you do have a great site here, but personally i am increasingly getting dissapointed by seeying someone as great with c4d doing so much spheres. Keep up the good work here, but it would be great to see a little bit more growth on a 3d creative level here.

      It’s a good comparative reference at this point. We’ve all seen Nick’s balls so often that we can immediately see the difference in lighting, dynamics etc when he demos something.

        “We’ve all seen Nick’s ball so often” = Hilarious statement.

    • This was probably just a quick way of him showing some holiday spirit… the equivalent of people buying a crappy flag and sticking it on their window for a day and then filling landfills. What did you make in spirit?

    I think there’s more to the picture than balls. Easier for the crowd to get a grip of the lighting, which makes it easier to try to recreate. And during that U might learn something about lighting :-) maybe that’s just me. I personally find lighting a scene the hardest if U wanna do it from scratch.

    Thx for a nice site… Nick’s the Man!

    Can’t see any white in there, just grey, desaturated colors on a bunch of balls….

    • Heard it was cubic balls, but I may have been misinformed.

    WoW every one hating on the spheres.

    Think people are missing the point!

    Happy 4th Nick!!!!!

  9. hmmm. Nick, i think you should only use spheres from here on out. Everything you do should be based on spheres. Even teach us how to model a sphere. I think it would be pretty awesome.

    Thanks for the endless FREE tutorials and extremely underpriced plug-ins, lighting kits, texture kits that half the motion graphics world uses on a daily basis. Go Spheres!

  14. Nice render and I like the spheres but maybe balloons would have been a better choice? Espeically in this arrangement and could have shown off some SSS skills too…mmmm something to try I think.

    Thanks again for all the fantastic, informative and funny tutorials over the years dude!
