Meet Your New Greyscalegorilla.

by Nick Campbell

So, What’s with the new site?

Hi! As you may have noticed by now, things are looking pretty different around here. Well, the team has been hard at work for the past 7 months on a brand new site, a new training platform, and other goodies. And we couldn’t wait any longer to get it out. Now, we have a lot of stuff to show you but before we do…

You’re gonna need to update your password. Just this once.

I know. It’s a pain. But our old system had stuff in too many different places.  This new system puts everything in one place. With one login, it’s way easier to watch your paid training, download your plugins, and log in using your Greyscalegorilla Plus membership in new ways. (More about this below!)

Existing customers, go here and update your password. Once you are in your new customer area, you will find links to everything you purchased and a link to the all-new Plus Portal.

What Does This Mean for Plus Customers?

First, Greyscalegorilla Plus just got a HUGE facelift. One of the big reasons for the new site is to make Greyscalegorilla Plus way easier to use and much more flexible for upcoming product releases and training we are bringing to the platform.

If you are currently a Plus member, watch your email for some exciting new additions to your membership including new training and even a couple Greyscalegorilla plugins that just got added to your account. Yes, Those Plugins!

Also, we created Gorilla U, our all-new training platform, and included it ALL in your Plus Membership.

We made a quick overview of what’s new… Watch this quick preview of the all-new Plus and Gorilla U.

Behind The Scenes Of The New Greyscalegorilla Plus:

Hey Plus Members! You can log in now and start watching the new stuff today.

  1. First, click on “Account” in the upper right of this site.
  2. Update your password. You will only have to do this once.
  3. Login to your account with the new password.
  4. Go to the new Plus Portal.
  5. There you will find links to everything you have access to as a Plus Member.
  6. Watch your email for new updates.

This is just version 1.0

With the new site comes, well, new bugs. Even some missing pages. We are hard at work filling in articles, podcasts, and tutorials to our blog as we speak. But let us know if you see anything out of place or not working so well. This new site is an amazing new platform and it will be updated all the time to make it a better place for all of our customers and viewers.

Where do I find my other Purchases?

Not a Plus member but want to get access to your downloads or training? We made it easy. It’s all in one place.

  1. Click on “Account” in the upper right corner of this site.
  2. Update your password. You will only have to do this one time.
  3. Login to your account with the new password.
  4. Your purchase history and downloads will be available in your customer account.

Another Logo? What’s Gorilla U?

Gorilla U is your brand new, all-in-one training platform that includes ALL of the pro training and expert guides you need in one easy to navigate site. It’s super easy to find exactly the right piece of training just when you need it, whether you have 5 minutes or an entire week to learn a new renderer.

And of course, an all-access pass to Gorilla U is included with your Greyscalegorilla Plus membership.

Why Do All This anyway?

We saw the future of Greyscalegorilla and it included adding a TON of new training and tools to Greyscalegorilla Plus. And our old site… well… it wasn’t easy to deliver new training and products to our best customers. It was limiting, really.

We also listened to our customers and wanted to add new features to Plus like monthly pricing, a better viewing experience for training, and easier discoverability.

Look, we know that if we are going to ask you for a recurring monthly or yearly payment, then we have to deliver huge value in return. This new site and new back end platform will allow us to deliver more value than ever and easily keep our Members up to date with new training and products as they get released.

Thanks for being patient with us!

We know the site has been a bit quiet lately. But we are sure that this new experience will be worth the wait.

If you have any questions about your account or getting access to past purchases or training, please hit up our customer support. We are working extra hard during this transition to answer your questions.

Thanks again for joining Greyscalegorilla. It’s been an incredible 11 years of delivering the best 3D training, handcrafted materials, and award-winning plugins for Cinema 4D.

We are just getting started.

    I’m thinking of becoming a Plus member or buying the Light Kit Pro plugin
    I just have one question.
    With the Plus membership you’re offering the Light Kit Pro plugin.
    What happens to the plugin, If after a year subscription I choose not to subscribe?

    • Deirdra WisniewskiSeptember 24, 2020 at 12:46 pm

      You have access to all of the plugins included with Plus only while your subscription is active. Should you choose not to renew in a year, you lose access to Plus plugins.

    All free tutorials are gone? That should not be !

  3. Emmanuel PrasadAugust 14, 2020 at 11:45 pm

    Hi, wanted to know is topcoat v1.504 for R19 or R20? My friend has it and it doesn’t work on his R20, any solution?

    • Nick CampbellAugust 15, 2020 at 9:57 pm

      Hi, Topcoat is supported for all current versions of C4D up to S22 right now. Be sure to check your account for the latest version.

    I got chills, and yes they’re multiplying.

    The new site looks great, so worth the wait! Congratulations Nick and the rest of the GSG Team!

    • Nick CampbellAugust 15, 2020 at 10:01 pm

      Hi. I hope this helps answer your question.

      1. First, be sure to check out our Free Tutorial page to see the free tutorials currently available on our site.
      2. Many Classic tutorials from Greyscalegorilla are now available on Greyscalegorilla Plus. And, there are many more new training series on the way.
      3. Some tutorials that were outdated or did not meet our new training standards were removed.
      4. So many hours of new training series over the last couple of years are available in Gorilla U and have never been on Vimeo or Youtube before. See them all here.

      Let me know if you are looking for something in particular, I can let you know where to find it.

    • 6675faa7-4254-4ff6-b494-10f7bf90692cAugust 15, 2020 at 1:47 pm

      Not all of us can afford the subscription. GSG is no more!

  5. ShawnAugust 8, 2020 at 4:54 pm

    I’m sad because I can’t seem to be able to find the bomb tutorial. That was the first Maxon cinema 4d project I ever did. As I bought it for my birthday and got it done that same day.

    • Nick CampbellAugust 8, 2020 at 6:12 pm

      If you are talking about the bomb and the crate tutorial, you can sign up here for free and watch it. it’s included in the Intro to Cinema 4D.


      • ShawnAugust 24, 2020 at 1:25 pm

        Thank you for the reply. From what I can tell It’s no longer clickable?!?!? It’s ok tho.

  6. Kevin GrandAugust 7, 2020 at 5:15 pm

    Thank you for including a monthly subscription. For those of us still trying to piece together a potential career in mograph, it is extremely helpful in taking the edge off. I recently bought the HDRI kit and love it so far. Looking forward to checking out +.

    • Deirdra WisniewskiAugust 7, 2020 at 10:03 pm

      Our customers asked and we listened! Welcome to Plus!

  7. Tony GrajedaAugust 7, 2020 at 2:35 am

    Awesome new site! Been a fan since 2010 and you guys never cease to amaze me. Keep up the great work!

    • Deirdra WisniewskiAugust 7, 2020 at 7:19 am

      Thanks for being a long-time supporter! We appreciate you!

  8. Fednance MarimbaAugust 6, 2020 at 8:57 pm

    Great surprise early morning for my practice.
    Still navigating, hope to get my spots for continuity.
    All-in-all, good work and wish you the best

    • Jacqueline MuellerAugust 7, 2020 at 3:31 pm

      Right back at ya! Thanks for being a PLUS member!

  9. Kevin ValleryAugust 6, 2020 at 6:38 pm

    Been holding off on plus to see where you guys were going to end up, and if Chad was going to stick around. Also, I guess because I purchased the EMC right before you included it on plus, lol. The looks like a good move. Nice work!

    • Jacqueline MuellerAugust 7, 2020 at 3:33 pm

      There is a lot of value in PLUS! Hope you join us soon. All the best and thanks for leaving a comment!

  10. Shelley GreenAugust 6, 2020 at 3:47 pm

    Light Kit Studio is my guess. I already own it, and love it – also love Area maps.

    New site is awesome 🙂

    PS – who are some of your oldest customers? I go back as far as 2012, maybe a little older – hard to tell.

    • Shelley GreenAugust 7, 2020 at 10:06 am

      Ok, so just for fun, I checked in my order history – being supporting GSG since 2010! You guys are awesome. Thanks for what you do.

      • Jacqueline MuellerAugust 7, 2020 at 3:34 pm

        Well we think you are awesome! Thanks for being on this ride with us for a whole decade!
