Course Outline

Intermediate Maxon Cinema 4D

Duration: 2 Days


This course builds upon your understanding of Cinema 4D to teach you further techniques and tools to create more fluid 3D graphics, models and animations. Workflows and techniques covered will include those needed for professional product design, architectural visualisation, character animation, game development, special effects and beautiful motion graphics.


Delegates should have completed the Transmedia introductory course or at least have a good grasp of Cinema 4D.
