Saw a cool tutorial over at chicagoc4d.com. Chris Schmidt goes in depth with the new Cinema4D release. From chicagoc4d.com “Chris got his copy of Cinema 4D R13 the morning of our meeting, and as usual didn’t waste any time diving deep into the new features. In this video he starts with the Physical Camera, Physical Render, Motion Blur and other great new rendering features. He then moves on to the incredible new character animation tools. The highlight of this video has to be the zombie.” Check it out HERE
Our recent young artist, Marc Urtasun, has donated three free-to-use Cinema 4D assets. You can download the same from HERE. Thanks a lot for these, Marc! We’ll look forward to your future works as well.
Frank Willeke who is the mastermind behind all the content at www.c4d-jack.de has created Surface Spread, a great environment generation plug in, and it is now supported by Renderfeed. Our friends over at 3devotion.com turned us onto this great plug in. You can see some examples of how 3devotion used it in there teaser video seen HERE. Some of the features of Surface Spread includes are creating landscape scenes, distributing objects according to geological rules, generating parametric landscapes / terrains, generating parametric rocks and stones. With purchase of the plug in you get a shader for infinite color variation and a nice plant library.
Nick over at greyscalegorilla.com put out a nice tutorial about using Sub Surface Scattering. Nick says on his site “In this in-depth tutorial, I show you how to setup Sub Surface Scattering (SSS) In Cinema 4D and go into detail about how to tweak the settings for speed and accuracy. I also show you how SSS now renders with Global Illumination properly and how much faster it is when using the new Physical Renderer in R13.” Check it out and get your waxy renders on!

Check out the body of work from our latest client, Capacity. They have re-branded networks from NBC to Cartoon Network and have kept it consistently clean and slick. The commercial work the team does over there in Culver City is amazing, but don’t miss the short film Upgrade + Mobilize. In Capacity’s words, “U+M employs a range of techniques, styles and disciplines that made the process of creating the piece both challenging and rewarding.” Good stuff, Capacity really shows off what Cinema4D can do!

Great new animation from Motion Graphics Gurus Buck. Take a look at The Spot and how they turn a dismal monotone world into an explosion of color and all things good.
The words of Buck: For the launch of Burt’s Bees new line of shampoos and lotions called Gud, we worked with the Agency Baldwin& to create one of the first scratch-n-sniff commercials ever. So next level.
