Making of Super Snail

This work is fully modeled and rendered in Cinema 4D. I have used BodyPaint and Photoshop for the textures. I start modeling the snail shell, to do this I use a spiral spline and a circular shape inside a sweep NURBS, I activate it and adjust the spiral parameters to get both the necessary turns and the thickness at the beginning and at the end.

3D Text Tutorial

Some people have been asking me how I created the sleek 3D text for the header of Celoxdesign (if you can’t see it in the header your probably viewing a newer version of Celoxdesign Happy ). This 3D text tutorial includes everything, so with proper materials and lightning.

Glass In Cinema4D

Glass can be a difficult material to capture correctly in a 3D program. Ordinary glass presents us with extremes in nearly every surface attribute. Hard specularity, transparency, reflection, refraction – glass has it all. The transparency and reflective values of glass change with our angle of observation. Glass seems completely transparent to us, yet it casts a shadow. Thus, it is a unique challenge to embody all of these aspects of glass in a material setup.

3D Objects from Vectors

This is a video tutorial on taking vector art and importing it into Cinema 4D to create a 3D object that can be animated, textured, and manipulated in 3D space. In this tutorial, written by David from filmmakingcentral.com he shows you exactly how to do this. David was nice enough to allow us to repost this on our blog. He is using artwork from the free Vector Sample Pack from our Arsenal.

Abstract Render

Well, I decided to make a tutorial out of my two “Crystalize” abstracts since people like them so much. Making those effects is not very hard. Its only playing around until u get what you want. But once u get the effect you feel like using it over and over combining with other things. I bet after this tutorial ends you will probably think this was so easy i could have done it without a tutorial. But enough with the talking, lets start making something.

CREATING SKIES WITH SHADERS

This tutorial explains how to create a large sky-plane, create a sky-like material using the bhodinut 2d noise shaders and explains how to create your own variations etc. I was going through the “nebula” tutorial on the maxon site and I noticed that similar techniques could be used to create normal clouds, so I simplified it all a bit and decided to write a tutorial on it, hope you find it useful!!

Hair Geometrics in Cinema4D

MAXON’S CINEMA 4D allows users to add a module called HAIR, integrating custom hair control to 3D projects.  However, sometimes users may want to export the HAIR geometry to non-HAIR users.  The process, although easy, isn’t necessarily obvious.  Here’s how you can do it, or at least one way to do it.
