Description

In this CINEMA 4D tutorial, we will learn how to create realistic product renders within CINEMA 4D. Pre-visualization is a very important part of the product design process, because it can be used as a photorealistic mockup, allowing the client and the designer to see how an object is supposed to look and function before it is manufactured. This tutorial will focus on achieving a high degree of realism in your rendered product shots, and we will be emphasizing key areas such as creating a studio light setup within CINEMA 4D, complete with light diffusers and reflectors. We will also learn how to simulate a wide variety of materials, such as clear plastic, matte plastic, brushed metal, illuminated LEDs, chrome, as well as many additional tips and workflows that will help you to get clean, professional renders of your final product. Software required: CINEMA 4D 11.5.

[Autogenerated] hello. I'm kind with digital tutors and in this series of lessons will learn how to create realistic product renders within cinema 40. Now, product visualization is really a very important part of the design process because it could be used really like a photo realistic markup of a proposed project is gonna have a client and the designer to see just how an object supposed to look and function before it's even manufactured. Now this course is gonna focus on how we can achieve a high degree of realism. Within are rendered product shots. So we'll be emphasizing key areas such as creating studio lights it up with instead of affording, complete with light diffusers and reflectors. We'll also learn how we can simulate a wide variety of materials, such as clear plastic mat plastic brushed metal illuminated L. E. D's chrome as what was a lot of additional tips and work clothes that will really help you to get some clean, professional renders of your final product. So by the time you complete this course, you'll have a much stronger understanding of the tools, work flows and solutions to a lot of the common problems that you may experience when they're creating product renders within cinema 14. So with that, let's go ahead and we'll get started
