About: Thinking Particles in Cinema 4D

A comprehensive overview

In this series of videos we will take a look at the nodes, workflows and some practical examples of Thinking Particles Projects in Cinema 4D. Cinema 4D is a popular 3D program of which Thinking Particles is its most powerful particles system. In these lessons below we will dissect the usefulness of every node within this node based particles system. Furthermore we will look at third party addons and plugins like Turbulence FD and TPpartio, third party integration and practical integration methods with C4D's Mograph module.

About: Mathematics for the visual arts

Mathematical concepts for 3D artists

In this course my goal is to show where in the world of 3D productions mathematical knowledge can be helpful and speed up real world production. At the same time I’ll try to make complex mathematics less scary and intimidating. I think that we as 3D artists can achieve this by looking at mathematics from a 3D production perspective. Compared to the context-free mathematics we all had to learn in school the mathematical algorithms and skills we will look at here will be all in the context of 3D production, plugin development, programming for 3D, modeling, rendering and rigging.

About: Softimage ICE

The Art, Science and Power of Softimage ICE

The Softimage ICE system is until today one of the most incredible tools I’ve ever saw in any 3D package. It can however be a little intimidating for beginners to get in to. It’s a visual programming language but without the correct knowledge and way of thinking it can be a difficult tool to use out of the box. ICE incorporates many areas of current 3D production. Areas like procedural modeling, particle effects, plugin productions, fluid simulations, crowd simulations and many more all in one node-based system. In this course we will start slow, but we will eventually take a look at many ICE nodes and at ways in which they can be implemented in everyday projects. At the same time we will build several Softimage ICE compounds and plugins with the help of this Interactive Creative Environment.

About: Arnold Render Workflows

How to light and render with the Arnold render engine

In this course we will look at render workflows with Arnold Render. The Arnold Render Engine is quickly becoming a very popular Render Engine in many Hollywood productions and in advertising. We will start simply by looking at most of the material and light parameters followed by any render setting choices. Eventually we will light en render real –world scenes with Arnold Render focusing on known sticking points and problem areas.

About: Project Management for 3D productions

The professional approach to complex 3D productions

In many 3D productions several creative disciplines will be involved. From music to visual compositions, from writing to animating. The amount of creative disciplines overlapping in a project strongly correlates with planning difficulties, missed deadlines and scope creep. In this course we will mix knowledge from Project Management Courses (PMBOK) and Movie Production Workflows and combine that in a 3D production workflow I have been creating in the last several years.

About: NUKE for After Effects Users

Workflow Comparisons

While NUKE is a compositor and After Effects is a compositor, they don’t compete in all areas. In many cases both tools are complimentary to each other’s but in some areas they are not. In this course we will discuss the use of NUKE and NUKEx from an After effects perspective. We will compare the After effects workflow with the Nuke flow in a similar project, we will discuss differences and look at certain similarities.
