Hello everyone!

In this tutorial series, we´re going back to very basics and cover the process of creating headsets in Cinema 4D. In this 3 hour session, you will learn how to approach a 3D model creation and deal with situations and challenges that one project of this size could hold.

All lessons are recorded in real-time, and there is step by step explanation of each action. I included my original files as well, in case you wish to follow along on same saves I´m using.

Introduction video
Setting up references
What are the topics?

Getting familiar with basic modeling tools in C4D
Preparing our references.

Establishing primary shapes and general landmarks.
Establishing secondary shapes.
Preparing the model for detail stage.
Detailing and finalization

There are 10 project files included with this tutorial, as well as my custom user interface. This will allow you easier interaction and progress through this course.

Common questions

I am beginner to 3D modeling, could I follow along this tutorial and still understand?

Yes, absolutely. This is very beginner friendly 3D modeling course.

How good explained is this tutorial? Is there commentary?

Yes, there is realtime commentary, and I explain everything I do.

Do I need Cinema 4D r18 for this tutorial? Or can I follow along with earlier versions like r17?

If you own Cinema 4D r17 or earlier, some tools might be different (knife tool became cut tool in r18), so again it highly depends on your ability to adapt to the certain situation during our modeling process.

I work in 3dsMax and/or Maya. Can I still follow this tutorial?

Some tools are very similar so the difference is very small. Many techniques covered here can be translated to 3D software like Maya or 3dsMax. If you already have technical skills in any 3D software, you should be able to catch up, yes. However, project files that come included can be opened only with Cinema 4D.

Will I be getting final project file?

Yes, you will be able to download all project files.

Will we be learning texturing and rendering too?

I will be covering the very basic use of Arnold in this tutorial, so there are no complex material explanations.
