Modeling a Head in C4D

Modeling a Head in C4D

In this tutorial, Jannis Labelle demonstrates modeling a head using the Edge-Extrude plugin. This is a tutorial for intermediate or advanced Modelers with Cinema 4D who already have an understanding of the modeling capabilities of the software. Although enthusiastic beginners can follow also with a little bit of perseverance. Jannis has tried to include as many screen shots as possible and tries to make the instructions clear and let the pictures talk for themselves. Of course this techniques can be easely followed with any program that can extrude edges, like Maya for instance.

Rigging a sun for facial animation in Cinema 4DRigging a sun for facial animation in Cinema 4D

In this tutorial, Sven Hauth will discuss the task of facial animation, and the methods that Cinema offers us to deal with it. Facial animation in this case means that he will primarily talk about animating the mouth - once you can do this, you can apply the same concepts to any other part of the face or whatever you would like to animate. After finishing it, you should be able to make your own characters talk and express emotion.

Ping Pong

Ping Pong

In the beginning was the idea to get to know Cinema's bone and IK capabilities by making a simple character walk. There is a sculpture of two ping pong playing nuts-and-bolts guys in my bookshelf that I wanted to come alive. Eventually the idea of making one of them walk developed into a 45 sec. ping pong game.

Using the SplinMotion Plug-in to build an Animation Rig in Cinema 4D XL6

Using the SplinMotion Plug-in to build an Animation Rig in Cinema 4D XL6

This article will demonstrate how to set up the SplinMotion Plug-in to build an animation rig allowing you to animate a fire hose by moving only one null. The article will not focus on the modeling or texturing aspects of the project as they're really not important, but rather the rig used to animate the spline from which the firehose is formed. This principle can be used to animate any spline based model.
