What Would You Ask Greyscalegorilla?

March 5, 2015 - By 

We get a lot of feedback and suggestions for tutorials here at Greyscalegorilla. Most of them in the form of…

“We Want More Tutorials!”
“How Do You Do This In Cinema 4D?”

We’ve always wanted to post more tutorials, answer more questions, and play with Motion Design and 3D. So we started an experiment.

We decided to do a live show once a week specifically to answer your C4D questions. We called it AskGSG and it has been a huge success over the last couple years.

If you haven’t been to one of our live shows, you may have been missing out on some of the most fun tutorials Chris and I have ever made.

Of course, It’s impossible to answer ALL the questions we get from you budding C4D artists out there. But, now that we have a weekly show dedicated JUST for that, it’s a lot easier for you to get your questions answered. Just bring your questions to one of the live shows, ask it in the chat room, and Chris or I will try to answer it. It’s that easy.

Can’t make it to the live shows? Or do you want all the Scene Files from these tutorials? Check out our AskGSG Page To Learn More.

Below are just some of the questions we have tried to answer from artists like you…

Siggraph 2014 C4D Live Presentations

August 12, 2014 - By 

Join us at SIGGRAPH 2014 for hours of live Cinema 4D tutorials and presentations from Vancouver. Visit C4D Live.

As always, Maxon has brought together a great list of presenters to the booth to show off what artists can do with Cinema 4D. I saw quite a few of them yesterday while I was setting up, and there is some really great work being shown.

I will be live at 12:30 PST on Tuesday and at 3:30 PST on Wednesday talking about the new Reflectance Channel and other new tools in Cinema 4D R16.

Go to C4DLive to see a full schedule and check out the other presenters.

Here is something I haven’t done before, but I want to give it a try. I will be giving away my scene files from my Live presentation. Sign up to the GSG Newsletter and I will send you my R16 scene files after it comes out in September plus other R16 goodies only for the newsletter subscribers.

See you LIVE!

Questions About Cinema 4D 12 – GSG Live Cast

November 8, 2010 - By 

I wanted to repost this Live Cast from a while back about CInema 4D Version 12. It covers a lot of the new features of Cinema 4D Version 12 and goes over how to use some of them. I know it’s a few months old now, but I thought it would be useful to those of you that missed it. If you haven’t watched GSG Live, you can see all the old episodes over at the UStream Channel. Even better, you can watch them live most Wednesdays at 2pm central, here.
