Cineversity Tutorial: Learning Cinema 4D Through Experimentation
This is a must-watch presentation on learning Cinema 4D through experimentation and exploration. Watch as Zachary Corzine guides you through his C4D projects.
This hands-on approach to learning Cinema 4D is the best way to discover features and tools. You really have to see Zachary breakdown his use of the Cloner, Effectors, and Dynamics all together to create these stunning renders.
Here’s a glimpse at the projects he is going to breakdown.
Zachary will demonstrate how the Follow Position and Rotation options in Cinema 4D’s Rigid-Body Dynamics can be used to create dynamic simulations that are art-directable with shaders and effectors.
You’ll also see him use the Blend mode within the Cloner object to make it easy to transition objects between various states, like cube to sphere, static to dynamic, or from metallic to glass.
This is a true master class in C4D’s MoGraph toolset will inspire you to create your own outstanding animations through exploration.
Here’s a timestamped breakdown of the presentation.
