Cinema 4D’s Lead Developer talks about the now Academy Award-winning MoGraph toolset in C4D, which earned a Scientific and Technical Award.
Though the films themselves often take the spotlight during the Oscars, this celebration of achievement in production extends far beyond the last year’s movie releases. In addition to the Oscars, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (A.M.P.A.S.) celebrates outstanding achievements with Scientific and Technical Awards.
We previously talked about Cinema 4D’s MoGraph tools earning a Scientific and Technical Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and since we have had the opportunity to talk with Maxon’s Cinema 4D Lead Developer Per-Anders Edwards about their achievement.
Here’s our conversation.
Per-Anders Edwards Interview
Nine years ago I met the biggest Cinema 4D fan ever. This guy talked faster than I did, and he was so passionate about learning and teaching. After watching his live tutorial about Cinema 4D’s new dynamics system, I knew he should be a huge part of the future of Greyscalegorilla.
Chris Schmidt (and his two brothers, Danny and Joe) have brought enthusiasm and passion to absolutely everything they have worked on.
It is now with a heavy heart, I write this post…
Chris will be stepping down from his full-time position at Greyscalegorilla to pursue his new adventure in 3D. He and his brothers will continue working very closely with Greyscalegorilla on your favorite Cinema 4D plugins and tools.
Chris’s energy and passion for teaching are second to none and he will certainly be missed. We cannot wait to see what Chris and his two talented brothers do next.
We wish them all the best,
Nick + the Greyscalegorilla Team
Give an RGB image a 4-color CMYK printed look with this Arnold shader. Plus download the free scene file to follow along with and experiment.
In this tutorial, you’ll see how Chad created an Arnold shader that created a 4-color CMYK printed look in Cinema 4D.
The CMYK 4-color process is a look you’re likely familiar with if you’ve ever seen a newspaper or studied a magazine up close. Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black are combined layer by layer as tiny dots, which then combine to create the final look. You may have heard other terms like Four Color Printing, 4CP, Full Color Printing, or Process Printing. Read More
