Helloluxx learn Cinema 4D Tutorial Natural Environments from Marijn Raeven
Creating a detailed natural environment in Cinema 4D is no easy task – trees and other foliage can be hard to work with, consuming hours of render time and destroying scene performance. It can also be difficult to create a convincing natural look with enough variation and irregularity.
This training series for Cinema 4D focusses on the creation of a detailed and realistic forest. In a total of 12 chapters, the series guides you through the entire process from start to finish – no steps are skipped, no fast-forwarding. The final result is a large, detailed forest that remains responsive in the viewport and can be rendered in a matter of minutes.
The tree models used in the training come from the free plant kit from Laubwerk. Instructions on how to install this plugin are included with the training.
Marijn has animated the first few shots of this introductory video so that you may see another aspect of just how beautiful your end results could be upon completing the learn. Natural Environments training. Please note however that animation is not included as part of this training title.
The four renders below are the final result of this training. These renders were completely generated inside Cinema 4D, without colour correction, in an external application such as Photoshop.
This training series was recorded with Cinema 4D R16 Studio. R15 Studio owners should be able to follow most of the training as well, with the exception of the new Reflectance channel.
For users who already own the Laubwerk Plant Kit, please ensure you are using the latest Laubwerk plugin (1.0.12 at the time of publishing) to ensure compatibility the supplied scene files. To check the version you are using, choose About from the Laubwerk menu.
