In this CINEMA 4D tutorial we will learn how to animate a quadruped. Throughout these lessons we will learn how to breakdown the complex movements of a quadruped into manageable steps to create a fun and natural-looking animation. We'll start by taking a look at reference before we begin blocking in the animation. After that we'll learn how to smoothly transition from our blocking stage to our polish pass all the while learning essential workflows like follow-through techniques and managing animation in CINEMA 4D's timeline. By the end of this course, you will have the skills to bring your own quadruped to life in a convincing way.

In today’s digital world, to think about a logo only in terms of it’s usage in print is a huge mistake. A logo appears in so many different places, most of which are digital in nature.
We’ll get started by learning how to take our vector logo and convert it into extruded 3D objects in Photoshop. To improve it’s visual aesthetic in 3D space, we’ll also learn about things like materials and textures followed by lighting. Next, we will drop our 3D logo onto Photoshop’s timeline and create a simple animation for it.
To wrap things up, we’ll learn how to export our final rendered video out of Photoshop. After completing this tutorial, you’ll be familiar with the tools and techniques used to create a stunning logo animation all right inside of Photoshop.

cmiVFX has released another great addition to the ever-expanding Softimage Animation series. Not even the smallest detail will be left out as we guide you through some of the most challenging animation work: a human character leaping, swinging and landing through the jungle landscape. We will also explore animal motion, specifically the jungle cat, as he leaps from branch to branch in search of prey. The assignments will be using rigs that will be provided to you, and the scene files as well. They will be using the most fundamental tools, including Forward and Inverse Kinematics and blending, the Curve Editor and Dopesheet for timing and 'tweening'. We will keep the techniques simple and straightforward so that these assignments can be done in Maya, 3ds Max or even Houdini or Blender. These are more advanced level techniques, but the viewer will be guided through each step of the animation process. Come have some fun as we leap around in nature's playground!
