What's the best YouTube channel to learn modeling in c4d


Recommended Posts

I'd say that (apart from cafe channel) would be Wolf3D. Once you reach a certain level, and become utterly familiar with all Cinemas modelling tools, it then  doesn't matter which software you learn in, the techniques are largely the same, so I also would recommend Arrimus 3D, working in Max and more recently Blender.

A couple of other YouTube channels to keep in your subscription list:

 

C4D Cafe - I believe this YouTube channel contains some of Hrvoje's tutorials from his Vertex Pusher days.  Not sure if they are redundant to the tutorials also posted at the Cafe site itself, but regardless of where find them, these are the go-to source for the beginner modeler.  Just outstanding.

 

PolygonPen - Takes on some really interesting modeling and retopology challenges with his/her tutorials that involve curved surfaces and asymmetry.  Again, not for the beginner modeler but you will get there some day.

 

John Dickinson - A really good set of short tutorials on tackling common modeling problems

 

Noseman - Yes...Anthanasios Pozantzis has his own YouTube channel.  So no Cineversity subscription required to benefit from his clear, concise explanations on various topics including MoGraph (which does provide some interesting possibilities with modeling).  One of my favorite instructors.

 

Digital Meat - A Cafe Regular so probably a bit redundant but he touches on everything!

 

EyeDesign - EJ is a regular on the MAXON Podcasts and another set of YouTube tutorials that touch on everything!!!

I didn't forget him, but you may have forgotten he renamed himself Wolf3D !!! 😉

To be honest, I didn't know, because I still see his old name here. But thanks for the heads up! 🙂 I hope he knows he can change the name here.

Igor...you beat me to it.  I was going to update my list with Wolf3D tutorials.  I did not include Contrafibbularities tutorials initially as they were already part of the tutorial set listed at the Cafe.  It wasn't until I opened up a few and clicked on the "View on YouTube" link that I realized he was also Wolf 3D (which....I have to admit....is much easier to type).  So I actually was going to update my list today with a link to Wolf3D on YouTube but you beat me to it.

 

I love his modeling techniques and thought process as he works though some of his more involved tutorials on sci-fi type subjects - in particular replicating the work of Vitaly Bulgarov in C4D with perfect quads!  Sci-fi is my favorite 3D subject so his tutorials are a "must see" for me.  I strongly recommend everyone follow him (as well as everyone else on my list) on YouTube as there is something for everyone.

 

I do have to admit something:  As you can now stream YouTube to your TV, I do sometimes just watch tutorials without following them in C4D as a means of relaxing at night after my day.  Better than watching the mind numbing on broadcast or cable TV.  I find that helps me absorb the technique and approach without worrying about the commands or key strokes...which is more important, especially if you have some proficiency with C4D's tools.

 

Is that too geeky?

 

So the next big questions is this:  Will Cerbera ever have a YouTube channel?  Imagine what we could learn!

Thanks for mentioning my YouTube channel in this thread - twice. 🙂

 

Sorry for the confusion. I had to create a new e-mail account because for the past six months or so my contrafibbularities e-mail was spammed so much I had to close it down. YouTube ties your e-mail address to your e-mail account and they changed my user name to Wolf3D. I updated my e-mail address at the Cafe, too, but didn't want to bother anyone to change my pseudonym, too.

That would be awesome, and I agree, we would all learn a lot. However, my guess is no. Cerbera is very active here at the Cafe. I think he spends quite a lot of time offering his extremely competent support here. I imagine that leaves little time to start a video channel even if he wanted to. Making videos is very time-consuming, I can tell you that... Still, it's a nice idea, and I would be among the first to subscribe.

Nope. I do that, too. A lot. Nikomedia, Elementza, Digital Meat, and others. I often prefer that to watching some stupid movie on Netflix or Prime as well. 

 

Cheers,

Lols 🙂 Cerbera already has a Youtube channel, but it's only got my music and drone stuff on it so far...

 

Thanks for the confidence vote - I do wonder sometimes if I should try and find some time for some 4D vids as well.

It's a good guess Sir Wolf 🙂 Between client work, private tuition, cafe and writing the musics (my other big passion) I don't tend to get the massive amounts of time required to put decent quality vids together. I have, in the recent past planned a project-based video tut series, but the time has eluded me so far. But also, people like yourself, and Hrvoje, Noseman, Chris Schmidt, EJ and Arrimus, Nicko Schatz and a select few others have done such a good job, that I simply don't think I could do better, and between them they have already covered pretty much every topological quandary I would ever want to do myself !

 

Indeed, I watch Wolf's and the other guys' videos for the sheer relaxment and the reward of watching someone doing something so well, and explaining it so eloquently and thoughtfully ! 

 

But nice to know you guys would watch if I did, so cheers !

You are being silly! 😉
