In Topic: Best C4D refresher?

17 October 2014 - 07:40 PM

Thanks for all the responses everyone. 

 

I went with Tim's learn C4D in one day and it was great. Exactly what I needed for a good refresher. There are still a lot of things to pick up but hopefully noodling around in various tutorials will help with that. 

 

Gonna do the one on materials and dynamics next!

Yeah, there is this over on GSG: http://greyscalegori...ro-to-cinema-4d

 

I checked it out when it first came out but fell out of it. I'll have to revisit it.

Also, if it helps my end goal would be to start using C4D again for look dev and incorporating 3D for 2Ds sake in my projects. Nothing too fancy. 

 

Thanks :) 


In Topic: References / Imagery collection

I think when it comes to ease of use and the social aspect Pintrest is the way to go. 

 

I personally don't care for Pintrest though and use an app called Ember.

 

It is pretty wonderful. I found in the past, when I did try to use Pintest I was very sloppy with it and didn't like the process of collecting reference. Ember is much more involved but for me having a desktop app has made a world of difference. I tag and rate everything and keep it all buttoned up and specific. It is more time consuming but I have everything catalogued and saved just the way I like. It also has an RSS feature so you can check and save ref from your feed directly in the app it self. 

 

I highly recommend it, the only downside is that you have to be on a dedicated computer to save images. With freelancing that can be tough when you come across something you dont want to lose but dont have access to the app. In those cases, I have a draft in my gmail called "To Ember" and I save everything there to later catalogue. 


In Topic: Video about composition

I'm kind of late to the part here, just getting back from vacation! 

 

I havent checked out the composition one yet but the storyboarding tut was excellent. You're doing a really great job with these.
