I’m excited to introduce The Pixel Lab “Earth and Globes Pack!” I’ve collaborated on this project with Simon Spencer-Harvey and Remco van der Meer. We’ve created over 55 earth, globe and solar models. Also included are 6 Xpresso rigs to help you create very intricate and custom animations. We have everything from realistic and high poly to stylized and low poly and everything in between. Artistic, stylized, lego, minecraft, tron, cloud scenes, milkyway, solar systems: we have a bit of everything for everybody! I hope you enjoy it!
I’m extremely excited to introduce The Pixel Lab “Material Pack” has been converted to Videocopilot Element3D for After Effects! Over 500 C4D materials/textures to help you speed up your workflow and focus on being creative!
We recently launched a free Sci Fi 3D room by Remco and now we have a second version! It’s another full interior sci-fi room for C4D and is created by Anibal Diaz. Make sure to send him a thank you. Like always, the models are free for personal or commercial use, but cannot be used in stock or resale. Enjoy!
(If you have any free models or assets you would like to share with the community please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to help spread the word!)
Hey guys, as you know I really dig quick tips. Short little nuggets to get you thinking about things a new way, or quick tips on new tools or functions. I am a huge fan of a guy on Vimeo called Yader. He has 50+ Cinema4D quick tips which are absolutely priceless. So, if you don’t have a lot of time for 30+ minute tuts, get a quick fix during render breaks from this guy. Time well spent!
A bit of a different Cinema4D tutorial: a little tip on animating vertex maps with Pose Morph and the Morph Deformer and then how to create a tearing cloth effect the easier way. Video inspired by Adam Schmisek who you can check out here: vimeo.com/schmisek and make sure to follow him on Twitter: @adamschmisek. Also check out the Weight Map Propagation technique by Krotmonster here: vimeo.com/73997991
One of my inspirations for learning about Vertex Maps is Yader, who has over 50 incredible quick C4D tips. He has a few on Vertex Maps which I learned the technique in this video from. Make sure to watch all of his tips for some really creative C4D techniques: https://vimeo.com/yader

New free model just dropped! A free C4D Drone Rotor model by Remco. Enjoy!

This is a really simple, yet incredibly useful tutorial. If you don’t know about C4D Cappucino and AE Motion Sketch these tools will really improve your workflow. They both help you automate your keyframing and animation which will save you a ton of time. I’ll also go over the Cinema4D Key Reducer function and After Effects Smoother function to dive deeper into tweaking your animation and keyframes. Enjoy!
The robot model used in this tutorial is free, you can get it here: thepixellab.net/free-hydraulic-robot-arm-c4d-model
Here it is, the last batch of NAB training! This one is all about Lighting and Rendering in Cinema4D. Massive thanks to Cineversity and Maxon. Enjoy!

In this tutorial I will show you another way to use Vertex Maps. This time I’ll show you how to use them inside of materials which will give you a lot of control over your texturing. Make sure to watch Ben Watts’ tutorial after this one. He goes over this technique in much greater detail and even has a free project download. You can check that out here: vimeo.com/93337566
Round 5 of the NAB 2015 presentations is live. This is a huge batch, focusing on full project breakdowns. Included are projection mapping, creating graffiti text, sketch and toon for flat design, C4D to After Effects Exchange, mograph for show opens, stadium graphics and low poly landscapes. So much information to absorb! Huge thanks to Cineversity. I went to college for 4 years for motion design and I promise I didn’t learn as much in 4 years as I did just watching these NAB videos. Epic content. Enjoy!
