Cinema 4D Classrecordings Berlin

2020 Q1 – Basic


Basic setup – and first project

In our first session we first took a look at how to install and set up Cinema 4D. And then we already started with our first project right away!


Why me? – Part 2

We finished up our first project and learned how to set up our scene for rendering and optimize our renders in Photoshop.



In this session we explored further what we can do with a Cloner.
We also got an overview of how dynamics and the timeline in C4D works.
Lastly we learned some more compositing techniques in Photoshop.


Modeling with Splines and Volumes

This class we used to explore some modeling techniques where we don’t have to rely on primitives.

Additionally we also learned how to use the Volume Builder/Mesher to create smooth merged shapes.


Manual Modeling

In this session we explored different manual modeling techniques.

Including the Extrude, Inner Extrude, Knife, Loop Selection, Polygon Pen.


Mockups and Textures

We leanred different techniques of using mockups in Cinema 4D and learned about many texturing options at the same time.


Metal and glass
