Circular Jigsaw Puzzle

This a tutorial on using the spline tools in Cinema 4D. In this first set of videos we will learn the basics and create a circular jigsaw puzzle. I made these tutorials because I think the C4D spline tools are great for creating Illustrator-style shapes, and they're actually pretty easy to use. No Illustrator files will be used in this tutorial. It's strictly C4D. 

 

In the second set of tutorials (I'll create a separate blog entry for those) we will build on the knowledge learned in this tutorial and make a more complicated shape (heart-shaped jigsaw puzzle). 

 

Enjoy the tutorial!

 

I apologize for the multiple links.I split this tutorial into eleven lessons For a while I thought it's a good idea to do short chapters rather than one long video. I'll probably go back to doing longer videos instead. Anyway, I thought I'd post all the links in this entry rather than just one so you don't have to search for the rest on Vimeo.

Fantastic. locking tangent length and rotation would be the final pieces to my spline toolkit.

Very useful tutorial. I’m new to splines but I already feel as I know a lot about it :)). And finally I’ve found out how those people in youtube videos extrude splines with a click of the mouse. Using tools from other programs like Illustrator and attached to C4D. Of course they aren’t free, but I can also do my work without them. Thank you so much.

Thank you very much! I'm happy to hear you found the tutorial helpful. With the changes made to the spline tools in R18, creating spline shapes in C4D has become much more comfortable and fun. Personally, I prefer to do all of my splines in Cinema now as I find it easier that using Illustrator. :-)
