DAY ONE


Cinema 4D Recap and Best Practice

• Consolidate knowledge of the Cinema 4D workspace and layout

• Reconfiguring the interface - customising the Cinema 4D toolbar

• Better use of the object hierarchy

• Controlling object visibility

• Using a hidden null for objects "history"

• Layer management


Further into Materials and UVW Mapping

• Using the Reflectance channel to create complex surfaces

• Correct use of Fresnel

• Using the Luminance channel to create light effects

• Transparency and refraction

• Material glow

• Using Bump and Displacement to dynamically create more detail

• Combination channels - Fusion and layers for complex texture channel control
