Cinema 4d Modeling Tutorial House 2022 Part 1

Maxon CINEMA 4D, now on its 18th release version, is indeed an excellent tool for doing 3D art and work of all types.

To get really competent at it will take at least 10 years of constant study, likely more. It is a very “deep” software, as they say, and it has many, many facets and “departments” of study. To master it will take a lifetime; that’s how many parameters and possibilities the software offers you.

Fortunately there is a wealth of learning resources available to you, both for free and for a fee. A simple GOOGLE search will hook you up with many different teachers who will improve your abilities within CINEMA 4D, in both written word and in videos.

GreyscaleGorilla and Lynda: Online Courses, Class, Training, Tutorials are but two resources available to the learner, but there are many more, and
many of them are free.

CINEMA 4D is famous for having one of the most accessible and intuitive GUI’s (graphical user interfaces) amongst all the “big suite” 3D softwares (like MAYA, 3DStudio, etc.) If you buckle down, put your thinking cap on, and begin a serious personal study of CINEMA 4D, you will find your abilities will improve, every single day.

Socrates once said something to the effect of “No-one really teaches you anything; rather, all they can do is awaken the latent knowledge within you.” And the truth is, only “you can teach you” CINEMA 4D, and this is done by opening the software every single day, vowing to learn one new feature for yourself. Tell yourself you will learn at least one new C4D tool, function, command, deformer, parameter or clever trick, every single day. Jot down the day’s discovery in a spiral notebook.

Learning C4D will also force you to start examining the world around you with much more care and interest than you ever have exercised before… You’ll start noticing, for example, how different surfaces reflect light under different lighting conditions…. you’ll start to be aware of the subtle colors that lights and shadows take on in the real world… You’ll start to understand the IOR (index of refraction) of many real-world substances, like glass, water, diamond, ice, etc. You’ll start to notice just how messy and dirty and far from “perfect” the real world is. You’ll become fascinated by real-world materials like wood grain, marble patterns, human skin colors/textures, metallic automobile paint, dirt/gravel/concrete, etc.

You will start to take an interest in ALL the subjects that “real artists” have studied for millennia: anatomy, composition, foreshortening, color theory, Notan, perspective, as well as all the subjects that filmmakers and animators study, such as motion, collisions, squash-and-stretch, lighting, mise-en-scène, film angles, film editing, lens distortions, etc.

You may take an interest in some of the specialized skills that 3D offers, like explosions, fires, smoke, weather phenomena, fluid mechanics, hair, crowd behavior, cloth and clothing, etc.

C4D will almost surely lead you into studying other important softwares like Adobe PHOTOSHOP, ILLUSTRATOR and AFTER EFFECTS, RealFlow, X-PARTICLES, HOUDINI, VUE D’ESPRIT, Pixologic ZBRUSH, VRAY and quite few others.

Again, as I say, the secret is to open C4D every single day… and learn at least one new function, tool or command, every single day. Your own diligence, intelligence and hunger will determine how fast you learn.

Good luck!
