In this course, you'll learn how to create abstract 3D design elements. And by doing that you'll also learn the fundamentals of working with Cinema 4D, and with 3D in general.

You'll need Maxon Cinema 4D(Prime, Broadcast, Visualize or Studio), and Adobe After Effects. No third party plugins are used.

We learn best by doing, so this is a hands-on, project-based course.

This is the first course, in a series of four, where we'll create abstract shapes that are excellent as design elements for graphic designers and motion designers. You can use them for both 3D and 2D workflows. 

We will use a procedural workflow that doesn't require modeling. That means that all settings remain editable, and we can change the entire look by just adjusting a few sliders. It makes the whole process of creating and experimenting fun, flexible, and powerful.

You'll have access to all the project files, so it's easy to follow along. Although I hope you'll experiment a lot so you can come up with your unique designs.
