Hello everyone!

I write because I am a 100% beginner of Cinema 4D and I was wondering if anyone knows this product to start learning C4D:

https://greyscalegorilla.mykajabi.com/p/greyscalegorilla-drive

Or if you know of a good course or something similar to get started with C4D!

Thank you!

GSG is a good source of knowledge for sure, but you can also start with a tutorial from our store for R18 that covers some basic in 3D in general. :) 

I am not sure if GSG provides total beginner tutorials, I think theve are more focused on MoGraph stuff/animation.

The GSG Drive has a lowly 600 scene files but my FREE downloads here at the Cafe have thousands and thousands of scene files many of which were created by the some of the best minds in C4D (SREK, Mabad, HSredelic, and tons more of smarties). Almost every big name has some of their files in my collection and I use it as my second brain.

As a 100% beginner the GS Drive product will be overkill. Watch a few of their weekly AskGSG broadcasts to get a feel for what they are like. Really fun, really valuable, and Chris is a great teacher, but you will be lost until you get some experience under your belt. 

They have a great intro course on their page here: https://greyscalegorilla.com/intro-to-cinema-4d/ that I really recommend. You get the basics of modeling, lighting, texturing, and animation all in one go. It is getting at tiny bit dated because the way reflections are done now is different, but otherwise it is still really solid. And again, Chris is a great teacher. He is completely responsible for getting me from beginner to intermediate/advanced.

Some other tutorials I have recommended to my students are: 

http://www.motiontutorials.net/cinema4d-lite

Nice combo of C4D and AE: http://www.mtmograph.com/summits/

Solid training aimed at…basic C4D skills and working with C4D in AE: http://angietaylor.co.uk/cinema-4d-lite-tutorials/

Also, if you have a subscription to Linda.com, there are some great intro courses there too.

I haven't done the course here on c4dcafe, but do that too. The more people you learn from at the beginning the better!

You'll know Drive is the right training for you when you get to the point where you can watch AskGSG and understand enough to be able to use whatever techniques they are using that week.

If you know and if you heard for Vertex Pusher, then you will know that all C4D Cafe tutorials are from the same guy, Hrvoje. :)

One more thing, instead of Linda, I would maybe go for Digital Tutors. Once upon a time, I was subscribed to both and DT was way better, for me.

No idea - but they changed it about a year ago. I can't imagine a more perfect name than Digital Tutors, but probably someone from marketing had one of their blue-sky, out-of-the-box type rubbish ideas :)

I think if I'm not mistaken that Pluralsight purchased Digital Tutors.

The C4D Cafe Intro to R18 and modeling is excellent and so is the GSG intro course. With just those two you'll have enough on your hands for a long time. The material is solid and they're both really good teachers.
