Introducing the 3D Video Board Pack!

3D Video Board Pack Pixel Lab C4D Models

I’m extremely excited to introduce The Pixel Lab “Video Board Pack!” I’ve collaborated on this project with my buddy Remco. We’ve created a HUGE pack with 24 3D Video Board/Screens. These are extremely versatile: you can use one of the pre-built environments or you can copy & paste the video board into your own scene. Drop your footage or logo onto it and you have a great way to display content in a 3D environment. I really hope this pack will be helpful to you!

(Click any images for larger view)


The models are made with Cinema 4D R12 and include textures. NOTE: They will NOT work in versions previous to R12. You may use these models for personal or commercial use, just not for stock or resale in any way. I have made a .lib4d file so you can load these models into your Cinema 4D Content Browser and easily access the models at any time! Many of these models are worth well over $30 individually so we have again provided a great deal in the hopes of making this affordable for everyone! If you have any questions about the pack, please e-mail me at: [email protected]

This pack includes:

  • Aperture Model: Xpresso rigged to open and close with moving gears and aperture blades
  • Audio Warehouse Stage
  • Broadcast Open with a ring of video boards
  • Broadcast Sports Open: Use the Xpresso User Data to choose one of 6 different sports versions
  • Broadcast Video Board 1
  • Clean Glass Board
  • Engine Board
  • Grungy Video Board + Grungy Industrial Wall Scene
  • Stage Lift Board: Xpresso rigged to animated with realistic hydraulic action
  • Metal Video Board
  • Racing Broadcast Scene (Modifiable to a generic one if you want)
  • Robot Arm Board
  • Robot Board: Xpresso rigged to animate along bar, tilt up/down with accompanying chain movements
  • Sci-Fi Scene
  • Sci-Fi Tech Board
  • Simple Monitor
  • Sports Broadcast Interior (glowing lights are simple Optical Flares in AE, not included)
  • Truss Video Board
  • Video Monitor

These video boards can be easily pasted in any environment and are a great way to display footage or logos in a 3D scene. I hope you enjoy them!

      did u make for element 3d too????

      • Joren

        Unfortunately it’s not available for anything besides C4D as of right now. If we do decide to convert to element, I will let you know!

      Hi Joren, great job! I would buy something. But my iMac is dead. If my new one will arrive here, i’ll get something of your stuff.
      Beautiful christmas and a happy new year!

      +1 for Element 3d conversion

    7. Remington

      Do you think we could get a video preview? I’m mainly interested in the Aperture one, I’m working on a video for a photographer right now and would love to see how that looks animated. Thanks!

    8. remco

      Hi Remington, I’ have a little clip of how this animates for you over here: this was a pretty fast render, so you could improve the quality a lot by setting the settings (i.e. AO and GI) higher.

      Cheers Remco

    9. Remington

      Thanks so much! That looks great, for some reason I didn’t think the gears would turn too, so that’s awesome. I definitely think I’ll be getting this.

      Hi Joren – great work! Are these setup with Object Buffers? Thanks!

    11. Joren

      Hey Fasteddie, no they’re not set up with object buffers. Sorry about that!

      Hi Joren — I have R12, but it would be so great to have for Element because I’m way more comfortable in AE and the changes are faster for me — I would prob buy it if you added Element config in, and I bet you a LOT people would — I can almost guarantee you would greatly increase your sales, because there just aren’t many element models available.

      It’s an open business niche you could develop for all of your modeling packs. Feel free to send me a bonus when you’re a millionaire from this idea.

      hahahaha ok just saw your “Element 3D Ready Packs” — looks like you are already on it 🙂

    15. Chris

      Hi Joren,
      In response to several requests in your comments sections, I own E3D and it will accept native C4D files as well as E3D files. I have imported quite a few C4D files directly into E3D and manipulated them in AE, both CS6 and CS5.5. You may want to test this for yourself, but you could effectively offer everything in your store as ‘Element 3D Ready’. Just my $.02 worth:).


      • Joren

        Hey Chris, well, the models will definitely work in Element, but they would not be texture yet, which is why I don’t claim they are element ready. That and you still would need cinema 4D because the packs come as .lib4ds, which element can’t read, not as individual models. But you could definitely open them all in element and re-texture if you want to!

      Looks amazing! The only thing that’s missing is the American football. Is there anyway you add that in the next update, or before the Super Bowl this week?

    23. Eduardo

      The 3D model are full animated?, I can animate the robot arms in any movement for sample?

    24. Joren

      Eduardo, only one of the models is rigged, the others are not. You would be able to rotate/animate it pretty easily though I would think.

    25. carsten


      Do your models work in the lite version of C4D which comes with AE?


      Best regards


      • Joren

        Unfortunately at this moment they don’t because they use some mograph items, such as cloner, which are not available in Lite. I will let you know if that changes!

      Does this work with cinema 4d r16

      • Joren

        Yes it does, Nick. Let me know if you have any other questions!

    27. Nick Norred

      Also will it work with after effect using cineware

      • Joren

        You’ll need Cinema4D, not just after effects , and then it should work with Cineware. I don’t think it will work if all you have is C4D Lite in After Effects. If you purchase and it doesn’t work, let me know, we do 100% money back guarantees. Cheers!
