Intro to Subdivision Surface Modeling in Cinema 4D

February 2, 2017 - By 

In this tutorial from EJ from Eyedesyn you’ll get a quick intro to the basics of Subdivision Surface (or HyperNURBS) modeling, why it’s used for making organic shapes, and how to model and texture a couple fun models in Cinema 4D!

Topics covered include:

• Learn what B-Splines are
• How B-Spline smoothing applies to Subdivision Surfaces & polygons
• The difference between Viewport and Render SDS settings
• Using loop cuts and subdivisions to affect SDS geometry
• Covering the useful modeling hotkeys like ‘M’, ‘U’, and ‘Q’
• Going over two example workflows
• Texturing models using different projection methods

If you have any questions about Subdivision Surface Modeling in Cinema 4D, be sure to post it in the comments section!  If you model anything using Subdivision Surface modeling, be sure to share it with me on Twitter or in the Comments!  Thanks for watching!

36 Best Cinema 4D Tutorials From Greyscalegorilla

December 19, 2016 - By 


Our goal here at Greyscalegorilla is to provide Motion Designers with the best C4D and animation tutorials and workflow plugins on the planet. But sometimes we put out SO MUCH STUFF, it can be hard to watch it all.

That’s why we narrowed it down to our 36 picks for our favorite tutorials of 2016.

Much More Than The Usual Tutorials

Among our usual long form project based tutorials, we also did a video about the differences between Arnold, Octane, and Physical. We also went over What’s new in Cinema 4D R18. We made our first Arnold and Octane tutorials, and we even helped make a documentary about the origin of Motion Graphics.

This and much more can be found below along with over 400 more tutorials on our Tutorials Page. Browse below and catch up on some of our favorites from the last year.

Happy Rendering!

Building and Animating a Hexagon Landscape In Cinema 4D

October 18, 2016 - By 

Learn some advanced mograph techniques in this Cinema 4D Tutorial.

What we are going to make


Tutorial


About This Video:
In this video, Chris shows you how to use mograph tools to create a fully animatable landscape in Cinema 4D. We’ll cover advanced uses of Effectors including the mysterious Weight Transform parameter. A particularly interesting use for blend mode inside a cloner. Interestingly this tutorial was recorded over two years ago but somehow got lost in the shuffle!
