Linear Workflow by Grey Scale Gorilla

Nick Campbell (GreyScaleGorilla) has taken the time to break down and explain the ins and outs of Linear Workflow in Cinema4D. Check out the tutorial on his site HERE.

“You may be thinking, Why should you go though all this hassle? My images looked fine before, why change now”? While linear workflow is a bit confusing at first, it will pay off BIG TIME in the long run. Your images will look more natural and your composites will be even easier. Computer graphics is relatively new and everything you know till now is a hack to make things work with antiquated technology. Linear workflow finally brings realistic light addition and falloff to your renders. The worst thing you can do is go back to your non-linear ways and pretend that linear just doesn’t exist. It’s here to help, not to hurt.”
