3 Advanced Xpresso Techniques in Cinema 4D

January 3, 2017 - By 

In this Cinema 4D Tutorial, Chris will show you three different advanced tricks in Xpresso to help you make more advanced rigs and tools. He talks about the condition node, the memory node, and a special setting every node has called “On”. We start the Xpresso rig from scratch as together we will build controls to be able to instantly swap out any number of different objects. In this example we will be creating a chair rig that allows for easy additions later.

I found these chairs in this collection from Turbosquid.

Object Tearing Itself Free From Cloth

April 14, 2015 - By 

In this AskGSG user Ruedifly brought this inspired animation to my attention from Polynoid. Chris focuses on the idea of an object getting wrapped up and tangled in a stretchy piece of cloth and tearing it’s way free using cloth dynamics in C4D.

Use After Effects To Composite Two Separate Cinema 4D Renders

In this video, Xrossfader asks us how to make a look similar to this Nike ad from Matthew Day. We used a whale, but you can use any shape for the same effect.

Creating an Illustrative 2D Style Ribbon in Cinema 4D

June 11, 2014 - By 

In this tutorial I’m going to keep with the nice, 2D illustrative look theme and apply it to create those popular and trendy 2D style ribbon banners with 3D depth by using Cinema 4D. I’ll start by showing you how to use C4D’s Spline Wrap to create our ribbon along with some handy tips to sell that 2D illustrative look. Then, to get the flat 2D color, we’ll use materials created by the Cel Shader & Spline Shader. Finally, I’ll show you some creative ways to animate the ribbon to give it some nice organic movement. You’ll even learn some Latin! This tutorial has it all, huh?

Again when working with Cinema 4D to create 2D vector looking art, be sure when you render to turn up the Anti-Aliasing settings as well as using a sharper Filter than Animation; such as Cubic (Still Image) or Sync so you have nice crisp edges in your animation to sell the 2D style.

Here’s the tutorials I mention in this video that shows you how to create the 2D illustrative materials using the Cel Shader as well as the text material using a Spline Shader that is applied on the ribbon element:

Model A Microphone With A Wire Mesh Texture in Cinema 4D

May 30, 2014 - By 


In this tutorial Chris will start by modeling realistic wire meshes using sweep nurbs and cloners. Then he will show you how to render the mesh in such a way as to bring it back in as a bump map for use in other projects. Next, Chris will show you how to mold our wire mesh to a useful shape. Finally we will use that mesh in a full model of a 3D microphone.

In part 2 of this tutorial, Nick will show you how to light, texture and render this scene for final output.
