10 Dos and Donts for Cinema 4D (Startup Users)

This video is a bit experimental, slightly different to my normal tutorials. I take a look at 10 things that I think are important (and useful) when you are starting out using Cinema 4D. Perhaps if you are a beginner to Cinema 4D, this could be an interesting watch.

Absolutely everything in this video is open for questioning and I invite opinions on it.

For those of you panicking about another tutorial, there will be a new one coming along very soon!

    Hi Rory,
    Thanks a lot for your great tutorial videos, very helpful!!! In the past years i’ve been working mostly with 2D graphics, but now getting back into 3D modeling (i studied industrial design). I have experience with Solidworks and 3D studio max, but since I purchased an iMac I’m trying out other software. So far I’m very happy with the rendering options and materials. I’m still struggling a bit with the modeling of more complex objects – I guess it takes practice and experience (also need my fingers to forget the 3ds shortcuts..). Do you have any specific advice for practicing more complex product modeling? E.g. i was trying to build the retro 80s lamp on my desk, which i figured is a good basic item to build. But I’m having a hard time figuring out how to do for instance the lamp shade part, which is a metal element that is formed by a rounded rectangle and ends in a half globe. It looked so easy, but somehow i got stuck on this…
    Thanks!
    Rosanne

      Hi, its one of those things. I think there may be a ton of easy ways to achieve a lot of these using the spline tools. However the new poly pen as of R16 is really good for literally drawing polygons and making shapes. As usual though, it all comes down to practice. I will often create something, then look at it again in 6 months and realise I now know a much better / efficient way to achieve it. 🙂 I know this was mostly waffle but perhaps it may help a bit.. 🙂

    Thanks! Will keep trying 🙂 So far I really like the software (working with the demo version), but i’m highly considering purchasing it as my main tool for 3d work.

    Hi Rory,

    well thank you, thank you so much for making me so late! It’s now passed lunchtime and I should have almost finished an artwork I was working on but watched you instead. But seriously, I’m an old art hack and I’ve been using Photoshop since the eighties… yep that does make me old, I bought C4D just a few weeks back and watching your do’s and don’t has really inspired me. Mind my timing was a bit off as they’ve just released a new version!

    I’d like to watch more but must cut and run else the client is going to be screaming.

    Cheers!

    suggestions, please share. Thanks!

    The Asics Gel 2170 Men’s operating shoe is
    lengthy cherished for its fit, ride and stability. I had plantar fasciitis and read some suggestions on these sneakers to assist
    relieve it. I now not undergo from it. Used to run in them, now simply use them as a basic-function sneaker.
    I have a pair of GT-1160s that I exploit on a dirt highway in northern Vermont.
    Snow and ice now. They provide an amazing grip on these
    unhealthy surfaces. I’m unsure what number of miles I’ve ran in these, however I
    just started logging all my actions in Strava and I’m most
    likely near 300 miles or extra. I bought these because I heard
    ASICS changed the following gen of those shoes and ruined them.
    This is my third pair and so they fit perfectly.
    Great operating sneakers. For me they match completely and are very comfy for my
    operating. Too bad this mannequin was discontinued. I like these footwear.
    Most Comfortable. i like working with them on a regular
    basis. GT-2000,call me with discount. I used to be searching for a
    pair of all black Asics. These are good and match as expected.

    I only run in Asics; at all times nice and this pair
    was no exception. This pair of ASICS shoe may be very comfortable
    and delicate for running. I will purchase them once more in several colors.
