Modeling Interiors in CINEMA 4D

by Justin Marshall

In this CINEMA 4D tutorial, we will explore the use of CINEMA 4D to build interior sets. Software required: CINEMA 4D 11.5.

What you'll learn

In this CINEMA 4D tutorial, we will explore the use of CINEMA 4D to build interior sets. From traditional polygon modeling tools to powerful spline based techniques, CINEMA 4D offers a number of options for building models. Building an interior set will provide us with an opportunity to put many of those tools into practice building organic and inorganic shapes in a variety of ways. We'll explore methods for building hard surfaces like the room architecture, cabinetry, and furniture. We'll use splines creatively to help us build things like shelves, lamps, and artwork and explore the use of Cloner Objects to quickly generate multiple copies of geometry. We'll shape some of our organic objects using tools like the Magnet and Brush, and we'll talk about keeping our scene clean by creating a useful hierarchy. We'll touch on a wide range of modeling tools that will not only allow you to create this particular interior set, but to build your own sets and models more quickly and efficiently. Software required: CINEMA 4D 11.5.
