In this quick tip I’ll show you one of my favorite techniques for creating dramatic, moody lighting by making a sun timelapse. This tip uses the Octane for C4D Daylight Tag, but you can also do this in the Physical Renderer or in Redshift etc. We also go over why your HDRI doesn’t show up when using the daylight tag, and how to fix that.
We have a great pack today if you’re doing any architectural work or interior decoration stuff. It’s 10 free models of shelving/drawer/cupboard units. These are created by my friend Jim Field. I hope you enjoy them. Feel free to use for personal or commercial work.
Hey everyone! We have a brand new freebie by Rick Ellis today (www.rickdellis.com). It’s 3 different building/skyscraper C4D models. Feel free to use for commercial or personal work!
Also, to keep you in the loop, Rick and I are working on a MASSIVE building pack that is very customize-able. You can add any building “tiles” or profiles that can be arranged in any order to create hundreds of different building styles. It will come with over 50 preset buildings, and lots of add on options like helipads, rooftop features etc. We’re working hard, and hopefully it will launch in January, so keep your eyes open for that!
I’m thrilled to introduce Octane Lighting Essentials for Cinema 4D! I have again teamed up with my friend Alessandro from Renderking. Jump start your lighting with 11 completely customizable lighting studios. Each one has a full xpresso rig so you can easily modify the lights and colors.
The exciting thing about this pack is that we are committing to monthly updates for at least one year. We will be adding new studio light setups monthly with free updates to customers! (We just added Scene 11 to the download in January). We would like to integrate any user feedback and requests for new scenes so you can be involved in where this product evolves. Here are the 11 scenes currently included:
We have a new free model to usher in the holiday season! This was created by my good friend Adam Schmisek. You can check out his work and contact him here: www.adamschmisek.com
Feel free to use for personal or commercial work. Massive thanks to Adam for sharing!
I found a really great plugin and wanted to recommend it to you. It’s called MeshBoolean and it changes the way you work with boolean objects in C4D. It creates really quick booles with clean faces and has a lot of options including symmetry and beveling the cut edges. Make sure to check out the demo video. Highly recommended!
The results are in! Below are all of the entries into our latest modeling contest. The theme was “Cube World.” I’m pumped to see the incredible work by many artists who entered. I hope it was a great experiment and you all learned a lot. If you want to do a new contest, just let me know. I will host them if people are interested! I chose my two favorite entries to win the contest and win a free pack. Congrats to Jacob Behunin and Baris Oktem! Great work everybody!

Quick overview of volumetric lights in C4D and how to set up underwater God Rays. Hope it helps you out!
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!
