Training: Cinema 4D – Fundamentals

Ref. C4D-01
Not certifying


This training will get you started on Cinema 4D with confidence. The plethora of Cinema 4D features cover all stages of 3D creation: modeling, texturing, animation and image rendering. Modeling tools will give you the opportunity to design models and apply a large number of modifications, the UV generation will allow you to create sumptuous textures adapted to your model. This allows you to create characters, objects or environments.
