Motion Tracker Cinema 4D VFX Shot

Motion Tracker Cinema 4D VFX Shot. In this tutorial we will break down how we created the motion tracking for a short film for Lazarus Brewing Company. We show you how to effectively use the motion tracking system inside of Cinema 4D to track your live action footage. Like any project we do our main goal is to teach you how to work with the tools and to learn how to create things that will help you in your own projects.

UV Unwrapping Cinema 4D


UV Unwrapping Cinema 4D. In this tutorial we cover how to prepare your 3D geometry inside of Cinema 4D for texturing by showing you how to UV your objects. This tutorial covers mostly the basics of using the UV’ing system inside of the program. We start by explaining the basic theory of how UV mapping works and how you use it to texture objects. Once we explain this we show you how to unwrap a simple object and stitch the edges together to create the most accurate map possible. If this is a subject you would like to see more advanced videos on this subject let us know and we will try to work those into future series 🙂 Like any project we do our main goal is to teach you how to work with the tools and to learn how to create things that will help you in your own projects.

Intro into Substance Designer

In this tutorial we will cover how to bring an Intro into Substance Designer into Octane C4D. We briefly cover the concepts of how to retopologize your 3D models so that they are ready to be UV’d in the most efficient way possible. Once you have UV’d your model we will take the piece into Substance Designer and show you how you can quickly setup basic textures for your model. Using Substance Designer allows you to create many types of complex textures all of which can be used for your next production or video game project. Substance designer is a procedural texture creation system which allows for mixing and changing of many nodes to get the exact look you want. If you would like to see this project flushed out more and brought up to finished polished state let us know and we will try to work this into a future video. Like any project we do our main goal is to teach you how to work with the tools and to learn how to create things that will help you in your own projects.

Octane 3 Volumetric Lighting

In this tutorial we will show you how to get Octane 3 Volumetric Lighting working in your 3D scenes. If you have ever wanted to create super dynamic “god rays” inside of your 3D scene this tutorial will show you how you can do that right inside of Octane 3. Currently Octane 3 is in pre-alpha but we also cover how to get a similar effect in Octane 2.25. Octane 3 will give you the ability to work with these dynamic fog effects right inside the octane settings. Octane 3 should be fully released in 2016 and this feature is just one of many new amazing features that is coming to the newest update. Like any project we do our main goal is to teach you how to work with the tools and to learn how to create things that will help you in your own projects.

Studio Lighting Cinema 4D Octane

Creating Dynamic Lighting in Cinema 4D and Octane

In this tutorial we will cover Studio Lighting Cinema 4D Octane. Being able to setup interesting lighting in your scene can really push any project from good to amazing with a few simple design guidelines. In this video we will cover some of the basic concepts of lighting and show you how being smart about the placement and kinds of light you use can set your renders apart. This video covers everything from more basic product lighting setups all the way to a 3 point lighting setup that is used in real life productions. Also in this video we cover the topic of how to make glass look good when placed in a studio environment which can be tricky if not setup correctly. Being able to create emotions through lighting is something that can sometimes get pushed to the side in 3D settings, when in reality it is just as important as it is in real life to create a striking image. Like any project we do our main goal is to teach you how to work with the tools and to learn how to create things that will help you in your own projects.

Octane Skin Shader

How to create an amazing Octane Skin Shader using a preset scene in Cinema 4D

In this scene we will be working with an Octane skin shader setup. For the base point of this tutorial we start out with an example scene from the Cinema 4D presets library and then transport the native Cinema 4D shaders over into Octane Shaders. This produces a quick test environment for us to learn how to create a realistic skin material that is just as convincing as the real thing. In this video we cover how to mix between the normal skin shader that you have and a subsurface scattering material in order to get the transparent look of skin on your model. We also cover how to get Cinema 4D’s native hair objects to render in Octane. This process can be a quite confusing one since the way it has to be setup is very specific in order to get it working. By the end of this tutorial you will be well on your way to creating realistic character shaders for your next project.  Like any project we do our main goal is to teach you how to work with the tools and to learn how to create things that will help you in your own projects.

Octane Shader Scene

In this tutorial we cover how to work with a Octane Shader Scene. We have created a very easy method for working with this shader scene by creating custom controls through the use of Xpresso that bring most tools you would want to use into one place. Built into this scene is the ability to work with everything from Camera settings, lighting, light placement and post processing settings all from one panel within the attribute manager. Throughout this tutorial we also cover many types and styles of texture creation within the Octane node options. We cover many specifics on how to achieve the most realistic results in you shaders such as metals, plastics and IOR settings. Like any project we do our main goal is to teach you how to work with the tools and to learn how to create things that will help you in your own projects.

Subsurface Scattering Cinema 4D Octane

In this tutorial we cover how to create subsurface materials for Subsurface Scattering Cinema 4D Octane. This tutorial gives an overview of how to get the Subsurface Scattering abilities of Octane renderer to work for you in little setup time. First we create a spooky candle from scratch and then we show you how to achieve the desired shader to make this model look super ominous. We briefly cover the steps of how the subsurface setup works for Octane and what the individual settings do so you can confidently create on your own anytime you want. If you would like a more detailed and complex explanation of how the subsurface process works check out this link to Otoy’s site that explains how this works in Octane.

Photorealistic Products Cinema 4D Octane

In this tutorial we will cover photorealistic products Cinema 4D Octane. We cover everything from the ground up including how to model the pair of headphones using non-destructive methods inside of Cinema 4D. Although we do not cover every last detail of the modeling process we cover some of most important elements of how we modeled this pair of headphones inside of Cinema 4D. Once we briefly cover the creation process of the headphones we move on to the topic of lighting your scene inside of Cinema 4D. One of the biggest factors to making sure your products look realistic is to make sure that the model is correct scale. This greatly effects the lighting and shaders that you have in your scene, so make sure to have your objects to correct scale. The last subject we cover is the concept of shader creation and how to work with object saturation to create the most realistic renders possible. Like any project we do our main goal is to teach you how to work with the tools and to learn how to create things that will help you in your own projects.
