What is this course about?

The course is focused on the essentials to get you started with 3D. I will not explain every little button in Cinema 4D, but I will just show you what you need to begin with to get results. Once you get the bug, you can develop your specific style and preferences.

We will build six kinetic characters from scratch to later model and animate them. After that, we will create perfect and seamless character loops and render them with Octane. They will weave together the right dose of realism and cute design. This mini-project can become your perfect entry into the world of 3D I will also share with you my approach to work in 3D and my experience of learning by trying out and doing.

Let’s unleash your creativity and use Cinema 4D to make something eye-catching and cool together!

About the author

Hi, I`m Lucas Zanotto!

I’ve been working as a designer and animation director for over 15 years. I have directed and animated spots for Google, Amazon, Wimbledon, Barclays, Pilot Pens and many more. I also do lots of free self-initiated projects, such as the children brand YATATOY, which I founded in 2010.

In the last years I focused on 3D software and became obsessed with creating seamless loops and abstract characters. And I would like to show you this process step-by-step!
