This year’s Siggraph was full of great presentations from incredible film makers, designers, programmers, and artists that use Cinema 4D to help make their work. The talent and passion on stage this year was the best yet. Maxon and Cineversity have posted these recorded presentations for you to watch and see how these great artists (me totally excluded) do what they do. Be sure to follow the Cineversity Vimeo Channel for much more Cinema 4D related videos and tutorials.
In this presentation, Miguel Lee, Ryan Summers and Eric Mason demonstrate how Imaginary Forces created the opening title and main-on-end sequence for Pacific Rim. It even includes an unexpected shout out to GSG’s HDRI Studio Pack and how they used it when making the titles.

In this presentation, Jack demonstrates how to integrate 3D elements into OS X applications using Apple’s Scene Kit API. It’s a very new way to think about how to use Cinema 4D for live interactive applications.
In this presentation, Chris Korn demonstrates how he created a Cicada alien using the Sculpting tools in CINEMA 4D R15, including sculpting on polys, Project Mesh, Mirroring, Interactive Flood and Amplify. Holy crap, can this guy model.
