This video based Maxon Cinema 4D R14 training course from Infinite Skills teaches you the basic tools you will need to create 3D models in this software. Chris is an educator and also uses Cinema 4D for his business, creating graphics solutions for TV, film and businesses.

You will start out with a tour of the interface and lessons on understanding what 3D objects are. Once you have learned the basics, this course jumps right into teaching you how to create 3D objects using Splines, extrusion, sweeping and lathing. You will learn what Nurbs are, how to create basic 3D components using The Knife, Bevel, Bridge and other Cinema 4D tools. You will be taught how to utilize lighting, add textures to your models, and animate them. This video based tutorial also covers rendering your models and a chapter on using Mograph, then concludes with a project to build a model of a robot.
