What you'll learn

In this CINEMA 4D tutorial, we will explore some workflows for creating highly realistic interior renders using CINEMA 4D. Throughout the tutorial in this CINEMA 4D training, we will go through the entire process of rendering an interior scene with realistic light and material behaviors using some of the powerful rendering features found in CINEMA 4D. We will begin by creating materials for the various objects in our scene, in preparation for the lighting process. Once we get into the lighting, we will learn how to render our images into a linear color space and we will incorporate a variety of realistic light behaviors into the scene. Finally, we will discover the benefits of multi-pass rendering by making significant, precise alterations to our final render using Photoshop. Software required: CINEMA 4D 11.5 or higher.
