My main man, Jim Field, has created another epic model for us! Jim is the artist behind the sweet pocket watch model we gave away awhile ago. Today he’s giving away a Spach Alspaugh cottage house C4D 3D model. It’s a really awesome english cottage and is incredibly detailed and beautiful. Please make sure to thank Jim in the comments for his efforts and generosity!
This is a follow up to my last tutorial on creating an animating card house. I had a bunch of e-mails asking how to create the random textures on the cards. This quick tip will show you how to use the C4D mograph MultiShader to generate all the textures randomly and quickly. Hope it helps!
In this Cinema4D tutorial Simon Spencer-Harvey goes over how to create a simple bar chart using Xpresso. This is essentially an Xpresso 101 tutorial, so if you want to learn more about this powerful tool this is a great way to get started!

I’m excited to share our new Graphs and Charts Pack! Simon Spencer-Harvey and I have created 45+ Cinema4D infographic bar, chart and graph rigs! Every single model has an xpresso rig so you can easily change the bar, point, or line heights with sliders. The sliders are also connected to the numerical values, so they go up and down whenever you raise a bar or move a point! We didn’t stop there though. We are also including a fully pre-animated version of each and every model so you can just add them to your scene and already have the animation set up! That means you can either use the included xpresso rig, or you can use the pre-animated xpresso rig, it’s up to you since we have included both versions.
Quick little tutorial going over the Cinema4D MoInstance effect and one way you could use it to make some vintage echo trails. If you have any other ways you could make an echo trail, let me know in the comments!
I found a free xpresso rigged gift/present box model for Cinema4D by Ion Oprea. It’s a really nice rig, so download and get ready for next Christmas early! Ion can be found on Behance or at ionoprea.com. Thanks!
In this tutorial I’ll show you how to build a card house that flips on. The concept is offsetting your animation by using a combination of cloner and a shader effector or plain effector. The result is a very quick set up which is easy to dial in and yet looks very complex. Hope you learn something.
Yang Jeong-Seok from Seoul has created a really nice text animation preset for Cinema4D called Shuffle Text and is giving it away! If you’re an Adobe After Effects user you are maybe familiar with the text animation presets in AE. This is similar to some of those with options to animate text in with a shuffle or decoding look. There are a bunch of options so check out the tutorial video for an overview.
A few little tips on setting up depth of field with the cinema4d physical renderer and animating it very easily. It’s a little technique I prefer so I can easily visualize what’s in focus and animate it quickly. Hope it helps you out!
