Q: How is the Rendering in CINEMA 4D learning path different than the How to Get Started in CINEMA 4D learning path? A. This learning path is not intended to teach you the basics of moving around in CINEMA 4D. Instead, with the Rendering in CINEMA 4D learning path you'll focus learning everything from the core fundamentals of rendering to the techniques that you'll need to get photorealistic renders in CINEMA 4D.
Q. Are there any tutorials that I should watch before starting this learning path? A. We recommend this learning path for artists who are already very familiar with CINEMA 4D and want to build on their existing knowledge to learn how to get realistic renders in CINEMA 4D. If you've never used CINEMA 4D before, you can get up to speed with the How to Get Started in CINEMA 4D learning path.
Q: Does this learning path use any third-party renderers like V-Ray? A. No. We have other tutorials and training for third-party renderers, including V-Ray, but this learning path uses the built-in render engines within CINEMA 4D.
Q. Where do I go after completing this learning path? A. As artists, there are always new tips and techniques that can be learned. After completing this learning path we recommend taking a look at some of the other CINEMA 4D learning paths here at Pluralsight Creative.
Q. What if I don't use CINEMA 4D? Can I follow along in my favorite 3D software? A. While we recommend using CINEMA 4D to follow along with this learning path, nearly all of the core fundamentals can be ported to another piece of software if you are familiar with that software. If you find it difficult to transfer these techniques to your preferred software, we have a variety of other learning paths for other software. Check out the Learning Paths page to see the learning paths for your favorite software.
Q: What is a learning path? How do I use them? A. Learning paths are a series of courses organized into levels for easier organization. We recommend that you start with the first course in level one and work your way through all of the courses and levels sequentially.
Q: Do I have to follow along with the tutorial? Can I work on my own project? A. The ultimate goal is to be able to transfer the techniques and tools you've learned in this learning path to your own projects. While everyone learns at a difference pace, we recommend a three-step process before trying to apply the techniques to your own projects. The first step is to watch each tutorial and take notes along the way. Secondly, watch the tutorial and follow along trying to replicate each step in the tutorial. Lastly replicate the project from the tutorial on your own trying not to watch the tutorials as much as possible. This helps to ensure that you not only are able to replicate what was taught in the tutorial but that you understand the techniques and tools that were used so you can then transfer them to your own projects.
Q: What if the version of CINEMA 4D in the tutorial is different than what I have? Can I still follow along? A. Yes! While there are certainly new tools and features that get added with each new version of CINEMA 4D, a majority of the core techniques taught are the same and can be transferred easily from version to version. Just keep in mind that due to file version differences it may not be possible to open project files that were created in a newer version of CINEMA 4D if you're using an older version.
