How To Build An Animated Dynamic Character In Cinema 4D With Motion Capture

August 31, 2016 - By 

In this Cinema 4D Tutorial, you will learn how add dynamics to Motion Capture data to create an animated character. We will use Dynamics, Mograph Cloners, and the Random Effector to set up the main animation.

This video is part of an ongoing series of videos all about how to use motion capture data in Cinema 4D. Watch the full training series here.

At the end of this tutorial, I use our two most popular plugins, Topcoat and HDRI Studio pack to quickly and easily set up beautiful reflections and HDRI Lighting in this scene. Check out these plugins and more from the GSG store to help speed up your render workflow.

Three Ways to Use the Arnold Curvature Map

July 5, 2016 - By 

First off, what the heck is C4DtoA?

You’ve probably seen that abbreviation around the interwebs and wondered. Well, C4DtoA is the official name for the Arnold Renderer plugin for C4D. C4DtoA has had a blazing fast development speed thanks to its amazing development team and leadership. When they added a curvature map some time ago, I made sure I put a note in Google Keep to do a tutorial on it. It is a fantastic map that I am constantly finding new uses for. I hope you have fun getting your curvature on!

Curvature Map? What is that?

Sounds saucy, right? Well, a curvature map analyzes the normals of the geometry returning different values for areas that are convex or concave. I’m no scientist, but they are cool, trust me.


What You Will Learn:

  • A fairly decent explanation of the Arnold Curvature Map
  • How to use the Curvature Map to create a cool ceramic shader
  • How to use the Curvature Map to add wear/tear to your objects
  • How to use the Curvature Map to add a rounded edges look

Tools You’ll Need:

  • C4D R17 – Mac or PC (Arnold runs on BOTH)
  • Solid Angle’s Arnold Render (watermarked demo here)
  • Coffee and a comfy chair.
  • Free 3D Statue Scan (used in promo imagery) Courtesy of Turbosquid

On with the Tutorial!
