What You’ll Learn

In this comprehensive course, Jonathan Lam will take you through the step-by-step process of using Cinema 4D to create an oddly satisfying animation inspired by the works of Andreas Wannerstedt.

Topics covered in the course include:

  • how to manipulate shapes
  • how to create textures
  • animation and rendering in Cinema 4D

Here are some free lessons from this course, as a preview of what you can expect:

Using Splines

In this video, you'll discover the various spline tools you can use to create the spinning wheel. You will also learn how to use the spline mask and cloners to create the outline of the wheel.

 

Extrude the 3D Wheel

Discover how to extrude a 3D wheel out of the splines created in the previous lesson. You will also learn how to bevel the edges to create a softer, more realistic look for your shapes.
