Special CINEMA 4D functions for professional use in complex subject matter and branch-specific workflows
MAXON Certified QUICKSTART Training offers a selection of courses that teach enhanced skills in specific fields of use in a short period of time. If you already have good basic CINEMA 4D skills and want to qualify yourself in a specific field of use or expand your existing knowledge, MAXON Certified QUICKSTART Training is the ideal solution. In a 3-day intensive training you will learn how to use the software more efficiently and be introduced to techniques and workflows that will help you master your production pipeline with more ease and faster than before.
MAXON Certified QUICKSTART Trainings may not make an artist of you but they give you exceptionally solid and practice oriented basic know-how that give you an excellent start on your way to becoming an artist! MAXON is constantly adapting and expanding this program to ensure that new features are integrated as quickly as possible and that the needs of course participants are met.
Only MAXON ATC partners and MAXON Certified Instructors - who have taken special exams to demonstrate their proficiency as instructors for a specific subject matter - will be selected by MAXON to instruct in these areas. Go to the ATC partner information page to find the right ATC partner for you.
Structure and Pre-requisites:
MAXON Certified QUICKSTART Training courses are very practice oriented. Following a theoretical introduction, course participants work independently on small but challenging projects and are accompanied on an individual basis by their Certified Instructor.
Because the course content is very challenging and comprehensive, solid basic CINEMA 4D skills are required to participate in this training.
This QUICKSTART Training covers CINEMA 4D's Dynamics functions. Dynamics are used for various purposes in almost all aspects of 3D animation. Since these functions are used to simulate physical coherences, there is almost no limit to the way in which these settings can be combined! Whether you want to create realistic-looking grass for an architectural visualization or dynamic effects for motion graphics projects, simulations offer a wide range of possibilities for achieving these goals and for simplifying your workflow.
The high degree of flexibility requires the user to select the right tools and settings. The wide range of possible settings often proves to be overwhelming for those without the necessary know-how.
During training, course participants will be introduced to a wide variety of practical exercises on how to use and adjust simulation functions in CINEMA 4D for several areas of application.
Pre-requisites: Skilled CINEMA 4D user. Solid polygon modeling and animation skills.
Possible certification: MAXON Certificate SIMULATION
This QUICKSTART Training is designed to meet the needs of product visualization and construction specialists. Course participants are shown which steps are involved in creating professional product visualizations and which techniques can be used to easily achieve impressive results with the source material.
These courses were developed by experienced product visualization and modeling specialists. MAXON placed particular emphasis on solid project structure and a representative selection of modeling techniques for the development of these courses, which will help course participants avoid common mistakes made by 3D professionals.
Course participants will be taught the most important techniques and workflows and will learn how to implement CINEMA 4D from the blueprint through to final rendering.
Skillful texturing, the right lighting and purpose-oriented rendering will be thoroughly explained and demonstrated, which will quickly get course participants up and running.
Pre-requisites: Good CINEMA 4D skills. Solid polygonal modeling and animation skills.
Possible certification: MAXON Certificate PRODUCT DESIGN & ENGINEERING
CINEMA 4D offers a comprehensive set of functions for professional use right out of the box. CINEMA 4D's functions can be enhanced, automated and controlled by using custom scripts and Expressions.
The use of scripts is almost a must when creating simulations or motion design projects in order to get the most out of CINEMA 4D.
However, for users who are not inclined towards math, these powerful tools can prove to be difficult to surmount. The Script & Expressions course is not designed to be a programming course: the goal of this training is to offer a solid introduction and to remove the fear of creating custom scripts and enhancements.
This course teaches how to use CINEMA 4D's scripting and XPresso features. In addition, basic vector and matrix mathematics are taught, which can be used to create custom Expressions and scripts that make modeling and animation much more efficient and take advantage of the full power CINEMA 4D has to offer.
Pre-requisites: Solid basic CINEMA 4D skills, basic understanding of vectors and matrices
Possible certification: MAXON Certificate SCRIPTING & EXPRESSIONS
The visualization of buildings and architectural landscape projects is a very important part of project development. Clients want to see the finished result even before the first hole is dug. This offers many opportunities for 3D artists who are looking to expand their field of work.
CINEMA 4D offers numerous possibilities for creating impressive and effective architectural and landscape visualizations - if you know how. Impressive visualizations not only require good texturing and lighting skills but also the ability to correctly position imported CAD files in front of a background image and which CINEMA 4D tools should be used to achieve a convincing, photo-realistic result.
The Architectural Visualization course covers basic techniques and tools used in this field. The course content contains valuable know-how for optimizing workflow for bringing visions to life.
CINEMA 4D offers numerous possibilities that are difficult to discover if self-taught. This training conveys expert know-how and helps course participants create impressive visualizations for their clients faster and easier than before.
Pre-requisites: Good CINEMA 4D skills
Possible certification: MAXON Certificate ARCHITECTURAL VISUALIZATION
