In this CINEMA 4D tutorial, we will explore the use of CINEMA 4D to build products for visualization. From cell phones, to net books, to remote controls or toaster ovens, product visualization can be used to get a 3d look at particular product designs before they're manufactured. Products may also be created in CG to aid in making commercials or other marketing materials. CINEMA 4D has a nice toolset to begin creating these types of models and then rendering out good final images. In this course, we'll look at some of the tools we can use to model products, using an mp3 player as an example. We'll combine splines in creative ways to build some of the main pieces of the device. We'll use several polygon modeling tools to add connectors and buttons, and we'll use deformers and generators to manipulate and create additional geometry. Upon completion of this tutorial, you'll be able to use the modeling tools in CINEMA 4D to build your own custom product model. Software required: CINEMA 4D 11.5.
