Hi folks:)

Project2_cafe_logo.jpg


I am very proud to announce Project 2 - Breath of life

In this truly epic training that deserves even more than it's Master series status, we will tackle one of the most difficult tasks
imaginable - rigging a realistic human from scratch with accessories. We will start by creating joints, then proceed with various setups
for automated behavior and natural appearance of the character.

We will create the final result with multitude of tools inside Cinema4D ranging from IK/FK, SplineIK, Constrains, Posemorph, weighting,
mirroring, Mograph, deformers and Vertex maps to advanced setups made by Effectors, Tracers, Xpresso and Coffee.
In the training we will create custom controllers and interface for our specific needs, and also both cloth and hair for our character and
combine that into fully functional rig.

Through this rigging masterpiece, professional workflows and insider secrets are finally available for you to absorb.
You can expect sea of information and useful tips and tricks, with fantastic problem solving, and the amount of tools and techniques used
is simply overwhelming and cant fit into this brief description.


In this video you can see the final result:

Congrats on release - it looks great! I really should get my act together and check out/buy some of your training material...

Ok, I´m still on 11.5 - any restrictions to be aware of in this course? Anything I can´t do? Or have to do differently?

FINALLY someone actually listens what the audience wants!!!
And a subject matter that has very slim useful tutorials on cinema.
Instant buy right after I saw the video.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE post the actual model you did but unrigged (or in various stages) so we can follow along with the tutorials.
I find it much easier following the tutorial that way.
After I learn the basics then I feel confident I can apply those rules to my own model.

Hey man, this looks (like you say) truly epic! I'm certainly going to get involved!

Does the tutorial come with the figure or do we have to buy your previous tutorial and build her ourselves? Either way mate, you can expect some euros coming from my direction!!

Cheers
Deano

Thanks guys, this training was the most complex so far, and it took a lot of time and serious effort to be recorded!
It was demanded by so many people that it simply had to be done, and the as far as i can tell, there is no similar training available anywhere else http://www.c4dcafe.com/ipb/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif

@PixelPit

I use new deformers, but I think you can follow along without a problem.

@phobos and drb1981

You can download the figure from the profile!

Cheers

I'm right there with James. A couple of questions. If I wanted all of your courses including the master series, is there a bundle for that? These courses are online only and cannot be downloaded per se? That might be a problem for me since I live in the boonies and have limited bandwidth right now. As an aside, I have been trying to figure out how to pronounce your name! Not that I need to talk with you, but I am curious none the less. ;-) Nice work and take care...

I dont offer bundle for all trainings, however I got a few questions about that so send me a pm if interested http://www.c4dcafe.com/ipb/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif
Courses can be downloaded whenever you want and you can even recode them for ipad or stuff like that. If you are really tight with bandwith there is an option to send you couple of dvd's, I am flexible for all kinds of arrangements.

I know my name is a tongue breaker, and it is is pronounced similar to Harvey. "Ar-voi" http://www.c4dcafe.com/ipb/public/style_emoticons/default/wink.gif

@Ardian

Let me know if you have received dvd's for Vol 1, 2, and 3!

Cheers

@Kelly

I noticed that you are unable to receive e-mails from us any more, we get server denied error or something like that. Have you changed your internet provider?

Hi Hrvoje,

I haven't changed ISP and haven't noticed any changes on my end. My email address is still kelly@nexgeni.com or kellycat@mac.com. I was traveling for over a month and got back two weeks ago, so something might have gone wrong while I was gone.

@Kelly

We will use the second one in future. Seems that first one rejects the mail for unknown reason.

@Ardian

I have sent them few days ago, please let me know when they arrive http://www.c4dcafe.com/ipb/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif


Hope the download speeds are ok for everyone?

Impressive stuff, Hrvoje. I'll be purchasing it just like I have all the others. Fantastic material to cover and I'm glad someone has finally done it. After watching your video, I am convinced the rigging area of C4D is overly neglected and underrated. Hopefully this will shed some light on the subject and I'll feel more inclined to use rigs on things other than just characters.
