 In this quick Cinema 4D tutorial I’ll show you how to take a spline and make a perfect offset of it, whether you want an inner offset or outer. This is using the tool called the Create Outline Tool. It’s a great feature to be aware of!

In this Cinema 4D tutorial I’ll show you a little known feature to help you manage your scene efficiently. I didn’t know about this till recently and I wish somebody had told me. It’s the Flat Tree or Vertical Tags view settings. I’ll show you how it works!

The Flat Tree option removes all hierarchies (Object manger display only, not internally, which is important to know) and lists all the items in a flat stack. This mode is especially useful when you are selecting many similar objects, such as when you want to assign them to a layer.

The Layers option sorts the items into layer folders, where each folder is named after a layer in the scene and contains the items on it.

The Vertical Tags option splits off the tags from their parent and lists them in a flat tree as well. This way you can easily sort and highlight all the tags you want. This includes material tags, uv tags, phong tags, compositing tags etc.

Free Cinema 4D 3D Model USS Macon Airship

My friend Rick Ellis modeled this Cinema 4D 3D model of the USS Macon and is giving it away for free! The USS Macon (ZRS-5) was a rigid airship built and operated by the United States Navy for scouting and served as a “flying aircraft carrier”, designed to carry biplane parasite aircraft, five single-seat Curtiss F9C Sparrowhawk for scouting or two-seat Fleet N2Y-1 for training.

Huge thanks to Rick for sharing this rad model, so dope! Feel free to download and use for whatever you want.

In this Cinema 4D tutorial I’ll show you a really cool technique for creating a embedded in cloth look but only using deformers. If you’ve used soft body or cloth you know it’s slow and a bit finicky and sometimes you just want faster results with an easier method. This is a great technique using the collision deformer, smoothing deformer and pose morph in C4D to generate this look quickly.This is a collaboration tutorial with my friend Alessandro Boncio.

Free Cinema 4D 3D Model Cloth Curtains

We have a beautiful freebie this week courtesy of Alfredo over at renderking.it. It’s a set of cloth curtains. These are Cinema 4D models and come textured for Octane Render. Also, these are not animated, and not really set up for animation, but they’re perfect for dressing your scene etc. I love these, and am going to put them to good use!!

In this Cinema 4D and Redshift tutorial I’ll show you how to make more realistic random patterns in your volumetric fog set up by using a little known utility material called the Noise Volume Material. I hope you find it useful! The city buildings used are part of our Modern Cityscape Collection here.

 

In this tutorial for Cinema 4D and Redshift I’ll show you how to use the math constant node to link together multiple textures. This will save you a lot of time, and even more as your texture node tree gets bigger and messier! Hope you find it useful.

To get the Redshift Material used, check it out here.

 

Coffee Run Cinema 4D Maxon

I saw this animation and really loved it, so wanted to share! It’s called Coffee Run and is by a UK based studio called Bomper. I don’t know a lot about this project, except for that it was created in Cinema 4D and is a self-initiated internal project which was started for R&D and for fun.Coffee Run Cinema 4D Maxon Coffee Run Cinema 4D Maxon

I love this for a lot of reasons, but especially the fact that they took time away from client work to explore new techniques deeply and really refresh their creativity. It’s incredibly inspiring to see studios doing this!

You might be surprised to hear that there is a NAB New York that Maxon participated in this year. It’s a smaller NAB for the East Coast, which flies a bit under the radar, but nonetheless Maxon stepped up and delivered an amazing show. All of the presentations, from artists like Andrew Kramer, Sekani Solomon, Robyn Haddow, Jermey Cox and many more, are full of inspiration and tips for Cinema 4D. Huge thanks to Maxon, as always. All of the presentations are below, so grab some coffee and a notepad and enjoy!

“Creating Complex Animation with Simple Tools in Cinema 4D” by Sekani Solomon at the NAB Show New York 2019.

Sekani Solomon explains his process creating the Abasi Rosborough Brand Film while also demonstrating how he created some of the more complicated shots using Cinema 4Ds MoGraph and deformer tools. Sekani is a Senior Cinema 4D Generalist/Designer based in New York City. Hailing from the twin island republic of Trinidad and Tobago, Sekani’s diverse skill set in Design, Animation and Compositing allows him to work at any stage of the production pipeline with a high level of proficiency.
