I wanted to let you know of another great deal during this NAB week. My favorite C4D plugin, DEM Earth, is 33% off right now! Paul doesn’t do sales often, so take advantage if you can. (Discount is automatically applied to your cart). DEM Earth takes online data and gives you geographically accurate models in C4D. It’s pretty epic! You can watch my tutorial on DEM Earth here.
We have an awesome free model from Rick Ellis today! Rick has made a “building generator” file for Cinema 4D. It comes with three preset buildings but you can make your own with the different building blocks and front faces.
Make sure to thank Rick in the comments, and head over to www.rickdellis.com to give him some love. He has been super generous in sharing a lot of incredible work with us over the years!
In this quick tip I’ll show you how to have your spline dynamics snap or break in the middle of their animation. The example shows a power line snapping. It’s limited to the constraint tags though. If you know of a way to have any of the other points break, let me know, I would love to hear!
Remco built a beautiful interior room which is a photo or video studio. It also includes the backdrop stand which is a great element to use in your animations. Feel free to use for personal or commercial use. Hope you enjoy it!
Like always, if you have any great resources to share, just shoot me an e-mail. I would love to help spread the word!
In this tutorial I’ll show you how to use the free NeuronBuild Script by Nick Wooldridge to access all of the medically accurate neuron models from Neuromorpho.org.
If you’re in to medical animation this will be really useful. If you’re not, you can still get some really interesting models to work with in your designs.
Nothing fancy, just 2 quick tips. Both relating to Cinema 4D hierarchies and how they work. Hope this helps you out!
Hope you are having a great day. If you are in need of a high end store interior for Cinema 4D, Remco’s got your back. The free C4D 3D model can be used for commercial or personal use. Enjoy!

We put up a great free model by Remco and got some feedback about the way he made the lens material. The lens has beautiful coloration and the way Remco achieved that was by using the Thin Film Shader which is new in R18. The effect can be used for lenses, bubbles, water, and anything transparent that has a little oily, colored gloss to it. Hope this tutorial helps, it is super easy to set up.
