Using the Takes System to Create Variation in CINEMA 4D

by Justin Marshall

In this course, we will learn to use the new Takes system in CINEMA 4D to create variation in our scenes with a very flexible workflow. Software required: CINEMA 4D R17.

Instead of saving out different file variations or duplicating materials, you can set up different takes for each variation and view each one very quickly from a single scene file. In this course, you'll learn to use the new Takes system in CINEMA 4D to add this kind of flexibility to your workflow. Software required: CINEMA 4D R17.
