Plugin Review: PowerSpline by C4DZone

Plugin Review: PowerSpline by C4DZone

Today I would like to introduce you to PowerSpline by C4DZone, which is a useful and affordable addition to the set of Cinema 4D standard spline types.    PowerSpline comes with a number of default spline shapes that can be edited parametrically and used with the C4D standard tools and generators, like Sweep, Loft, MoSpline, Extrude etc. Amont other things, it can be quite useful for architectural modeling (e.g. for creating doors, windows).    One of my favourite features is

Modelling a Firewood Shed in Cinema 4D based on a PDF Plan

Modelling a Firewood Shed in Cinema 4D based on a PDF Plan

In this tutorial we create a firewood shed based on a PDF plan. Like in the previous tutorial on building a shed, we will model the object to scale. This shed is much easier than the previous one, but you will need to have a decent basic knowledge of Cinema 4D as I will proceed faster and use shortcuts a lot.    You can view and/or download the PDF plan required for this tutorial here:  https://www.construct101.com/product/firewood-shed-plans-4x8-pdf-download/   In the tuto

How loop and ring selectinos work in Cinema 4D

How loop and ring selectinos work in Cinema 4D

In this short video we will have a look at a bit of theory and learn how loop and ring selections work in Cinema 4D. Knowing what I show you in the video will hopefully help you understand your meshes and enable you to read and analyze topology a little better.    You can download the project file we will be using here:  https://www.dropbox.com/s/d01tjue2zlsuqqf/how loop and ring selections work in Cinema 4D.7z?dl=0   I hope you will enjoy this tutorial and find it helpf
Creating large libraries in Cinema 4D

Creating large libraries in Cinema 4D

In this video we will have a look at how we can create large libraries in Cinema 4D using Mograph to render out an image sequence.    I will use a free plugin called "Batch Rename Objects" by Adam Swaab to make automatic renaming of objects easier. This is a Coffee plugin and will not work in R20 or newer. Unfortunately, there does not seem to be an alternative for this plugin if you are using R20 or R21. Moreover, that free plugin is no longer available for download either.   
Tutorial Request: Create a Chinese Pattern in Cinema 4D

Tutorial Request: Create a Chinese Pattern in Cinema 4D

I uploaded a free library of 330 Chinese patterns a while ago:   A C4D Cafe member asked me if I could show how I did those patterns. In this video we are going to do a simple example, recreating one of those patterns. With variations where necessary, almost all of the pattern I did for that free library are based on the same techniques.   You can download the reference image I am using in the video here:  https://www.dropbox.com/s/ak6ngpx0q9eh6xu/pattern 001 ref.
Modelling a detailed Shed in Cinema 4D based on a PDF Plan

Modelling a detailed Shed in Cinema 4D based on a PDF Plan

In this tutorial we will again create a real-world object and model a detailed 12' by 16' wooden shed based on a PDF plan, modelling to scale and not using the metric system but Inches this time. We will, for the most part, create this object pretty much like you would in real life.    We will use MoGraph for modelling a lot and learn how we can create and position quite a few of the components for the shed with the Cloner object, and we will work with instances a lot in order to keep
