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. Create a Plane object (Objects > Primitive > Plane) 800 x 800 m and 80 x 80 segments. Create a Formula object (Objects > Deformation > Formula) and drag it under the Plane object. Move the Formula object near to the edge of the Plane object.

Create Explosive Typographic In this tutorial I will walk through the steps I used to create this illustration to bring alive the word “collide.” While you may not find yourself needing to recreate the word “collide,” I hope you will find useful the techniques I will cover: - extruding text in Cinema 4d - using displacement maps in Cinema 4d - using the explosion deformer in Cinema 4d - exporting to photoshop from Cinema 4d - unique color enhancing techniques in Photoshop - various layer modes applied in Photoshop for great light effects (A basic knowledge of Cinema 4d and Photoshop is required) STEP 1: Creating 3d text I created a new document in C4d and added some text with the built in text tool. I typed the word COLLIDE in the Attributes manager. I applied Extrude Nurbs by making it a parent of my text.
