  • Volumetric Lights – TCC18

    Some amazing things can happen when you combine volumetric lights with over-bright values. This image was rendered with the standard renderer in C4D and lit with 3 over-bright volumetric spotlights that had slightly different red tints.

  • Kinetic Typography – TCC17

    I’ve always wanted to do kinetic typography but never had the guts to do it. Creating a kinetic type animation is no small feat. Each letter must be constructed from scratch using shape layers and transitions.

  • The Creative Challenge (Day 16)

    This render was creating in Cinema 4d using Vray Bridge and a greenish glass material. The animation was inspired by Beeple’s masterpiece Transparent Machines, and while simply a mere reflection of Beeple’s glory, I only had a single day to work on this animation.

    Ever heard of sacred geometry? There’s some pretty interesting research out there about the subject. In any case, today I whipped together a little render inspired by the concept of sacred geometry. I might do a few more of these.

  • The Creative Challenge (Day 11)

    I’ve been using Cinema 4d since R11, but never made the jump to V-Ray for rendering. “Too slow”, I thought. “Not worth it.” I was wrong. V-Ray is an absolutely incredible render engine across the board. In order to use V-Ray for Cinema 4d, you must also install the V-Ray Bridge plugin. While a tad confusing at first, I eventually figured it out…
