Be able to create eye-catching 3D designs and animations.

Cinema 4D is without a doubt one of the most intuitive 3D applications out there. Nevertheless, trying to tackle this complex software by yourself can still be a daunting task.

This training course has been prepared to take you from knowing nothing, or just a little about Cinema 4D and teach you all the fundamental skills so you can start working on your own. 

Ozgur, who is one of the very few Maxon Certified Instructors in Europe is going to show you how to create a 3D project from scratch, and go through the entire process of a 3D workflow, including modelling, lighting, texturing, animating and rendering. 

Along the way, you will learn countless tips and tricks as well as the industry standard techniques

If you are a graphic designer, looking to add that extra dimension to your work, or perhaps a 2D motion designer looking to take your animation skills to the next level, then this course is for you. It is no secret that you can earn more as a designer if you add 3D to your skillset. This course is designed to teach you just you need to know in order to advertise yourself as a 3D designer

Packed with over 7 hours of intuitive and easy-to-follow tutorials, this training is all you need to kickstart your 3D journey. Together with each tutorial, there will be an exercise file that you can download and follow along. 

If you are ready to step up your design game and move into the world of 3D, let’s get started!

You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
