I’m beyond stoked to share this Octane for C4D product. Quickly add complex dirt, grunge and worn looks to your materials. You can also add stickers and patterns. The best part is that it takes very complex mix materials, noises, shaders and layers and puts them all in a very easy to use interface which is fast and fun to play around with. I hope you find it useful! I teamed up with Cedric Henry, from PXLNTWRk to make this available to you.

We haven’t done a modeling challenge for a long time, so let’s do it! I was making a fun little “Cube World” last week, based on inspiration from this tutorial. Here is my result:
I thought it would be fun to have everyone make a cube world, and I will pick a winner. The winner will receive a free product from our store of their choice. We’ll make this a October contest, so you have till the end of the month.
To enter, just:
- Create a little world living on a cube, and
- Send me a render to [email protected]
The world can be anything, ocean, land, fantasy etc. I will put all the entries in a post and we can see what everybody comes up with. Enjoy and try to learn a new technique with your concept!
New freebie! This one is a underwater SeaLab model. The SeaLab program ran in the 1960’s to research underwater habitats and to learn about what humans can endure physiologically. It’s very interesting, if you want to check into it. I read the book “Sealab” by Ben Hellwarth and highly recommend it. Pretty fascinating! Anyway, enough history. This model was made by my friend Rick Ellis (www.rickdellis.com). Texturing/lighting is by yours truly. Feel free to use for anything you want, commercial or personal. Enjoy!
In this video I’ll show you the 4 different Solo buttons in Cinema 4D and how they work. Hope it helps you out!
If your scene is really dense, sometimes your focus picker seems to just jam up and not work which is quite frustrating. This is a super simple tip but the quick hack will help you pull focus without any hassle. Hope it helps!
A new C4D freebie pack from Jim Field has arrived! This one is pretty massive, with 15 3D conservatory models! A conservatory is a glass room addition to a house for growing plants or just for sitting in.
This pack will be very useful if you’re creating any architecture visualizations or creating any neighborhood or house scenes. Massive thanks to Jim. If you make anything cool with them, please hit me up!
In this tutorial I’ll show you a little render region hack in Cinema 4D to save you a ton of time when rendering. Kind of a cool little technique I discovered! Hope it helps you out.
Cinema 4D quick tip on getting more control of your shaders. Learn to use a feature in the reflectance channel called the layer mask to have part of your material be reflective and part of it be matte or non-reflective. Hope this helps you out!
