Tattered Cloth In Cinema4D – Day 1 Hello, Tony Rivera here. In this tutorial I'll be sharing some of my techniques for creating tattered cloth using Maxon Cinema 4D. We will learn how to create this effect by making a flag simulation using the power of C4D's Spline and Boole tools. This technique was used on one of my recent collaborations/artworks for Republished Tutorial
The Changing Shape of Cinema: The History of Aspect Ratio John Hess From FilmMakerIQ.com traces the evolution of the screen shape from the silent film days through the widescreen explosion of the 50s, to the aspect ratio of modern digital cameras. If you’ve ever wondered why and how the formats we use today came to be, this is something you’ll want to watch. The topic is too broad to summarize for those that would prefer to not watch his video but, there is one piece that definitely stuck out to me. Create Abstract Greeble In this tutorial you will learn how to create a complex (around 600,000 polygons) abstract Greeble scene without getting into too much modeling. Loft NURBS, Sweep NURBS, Formula object, Structure tools, and Visible light will be used to create the scene, and Advanced Render will be applied to generate the final image. You will also learn some cool tricks on how to tweak the final rendered image, by modifying the visible light, and adding glare and depth of field in Photoshop.
3DSpeedy If you think in an inverted Y-axis, for flying, video games, etc. Edit > Preferences > Input Devices > Check “Reverse Orbit” Press the ‘ Q ’ key to enable/disable HyperNURBS (sub-d smoothing). Much faster than clicking the green ‘check mark’ on and off. Also, it doesn’t contribute to the undo/history chain. Finally happy with your camera angle?
