Cinema 4D Light and Rendering Training

Create vibrant images with brilliant lighting and lighting effects

In a small learning group with like-minded people, you will learn in two days on a Cinema 4D PC/Mac how the correct use of light can turn even the simplest model into a feast for the eyes. Your trainer will discuss your individual strengths and answer all your questions - even about your own projects.
The correct handling of light setups, cameras and film technology is one of the most difficult tasks of a 3D designer. In this course you will learn to better understand the complex interrelationships in one of the supreme disciplines "light and rendering". The art of lighting design gives you the knowledge you need to present your models and scenes convincingly.
