What do you think about CINEMA 4D for design?
those page layouts can be tricky
I highly recommend it for any graphic/web designers ready to hit some 3d.
I learnt 3dmax at university while studying digital design and struggled to come to grips with its complexity and pretty much gave up. 3d programs seem to require a really different way of thinking to the usual design/animation software.
Anyway I then realised that just a small amount of 3d can really do wonders for a designers skillset, so did some video tutorials for c4d and picked it up really quickly. (the lynda.com vid series is great)
I'm just starting learning it :)
I want to learn, I only want to be able to add 3d logos to after effects.
I can't really afford it, so I decided to try blender..
I'm learning from a 9 year old kid on youtube
not sure if its the same, blender looks hard.
is cinema4d easier?
do they have a learning version?
if all you need is 3d logos in after effects, consider getting 3d invigorator.
as for c4d or blender, c4d has a bigger user base, and thus more training materials. check these out:
- would blender do that?Meeklo
- in the right hands that is, not mine..Meeklo
- thats pretty easy to do in C4D,
just make it in illy, export as illy 8, load in and extrude.tank02
- Load and extrude.
that is music to my ears, something tells me is not that simpleMeeklo
- meeklo. ireally a few hours working in C4D and you will know how to make stuff like this.tank02
- tank, blender is free.. that is a huge plus for me, if this can be done in blender too I will keep tryingMeeklo
- no clue..rafraf
i've limited experience with blender but from the looks of it, blender has all the important tools of a big 3d app. I'd imagine simple extrusions to make 3d logos are a piece of cake in blender
i like it... i work in fast paced broadcast and it gets me out of trouble on a daily basis... fast easy to use good rendertime
just dont attemot to use their "manual" since they are german it feels like its a terrible translation to english... it other words it makes no sense
we use c4d for a lot of motion graphics stuff. i highly recommend it. also cineversity offers a lot of great video tutorials. to make that logo above it really is just a bit of illustrator paths brought in as ai 8 files and extruded. the hardest part probably was the lighting. hard being relative.
