What will you learn in these courses?

In this Domestika Basics you will learn in 6 courses to use Cinema 4D even if you have never opened the program. Through a series of theoretical and practical lessons you will discover all the tools and functions you need to create still lifes and 3D animations, in addition to rendering with OctaneRender.

You will start understanding what Cinema 4D is, you will know the interface, how to configure a document and move around the workspace. In addition, you will see some basic concepts to create and modify figures.

Then you will begin to let go of your hand by learning to use the different deformers of shapes and to model with basic lines.

You will go further into modeling from scratch with classic techniques, among other tools that will help you give the shape you want to your ideas. You will see from cyclic cuts and bevel polygons to how to work with surface subdivisions and modeling generating volume.

Francisco will give you an introduction to the OctaneRender rendering engine and will teach you how to set it up to start working. You will create different types of lights and materials that this engine and Cinema 4D offer you equally.

You will learn to create basic animations by means of the basic concepts of movement, scale and rotation and, also, the tools to simulate a series of effects, among them, a realistic collision, gravity for rigid dynamic objects, soft or fabrics, among others.

To finish this Domestika Basics of Cinema 4D, you will configure and optimize a static and video scene to generate the final render of each one and retouch them in Adobe Photoshop and / or Premiere Pro, depending on the case.
