Introduction to 3D Modeling with Cinema 4D

via Skillshare


The goal of this class is to introduce students to the fundamentals of 3D modeling, texturing, lighting, rendering and product design. We will begin by building various pieces of furniture using the different modeling techniques available in Cinema 4D, however, all professional level 3D applications offer some variation of these tools as well. In the end each student will arrange all of their individual models to compose one scene, to texture, light, and render.

This class is intended for anyone who has ever wanted to add 3D design to their repertoir, has an interest in product design or architectural rendering.

There is a free student version of Cinema 4D available online.
