  2. I was chatting to Lazaros, aka nitroman the other day and he was explaining the install method for NitroBlast in C4D; the actual plugin doesn't go in the regular plugins folder and the process involves a few manual steps. I offered to make a video tutorial for the process.

    We cover installing version 1.01 and upgrading to 1.02 (in OS X Lion) as well as the new login area for donators.

    I hope you find this useful. Thanks for watching.
    Andy

    EDIT: At the request of Lazaros, aka nitroman, this video is now private.

    It is viewable in the Nitro4D donators' login area.

  3. This is a follow on to Chris Schmidt's excellent tutorial on how he customises the interface to speed up working in Cinema 4D.

    In this tutorial I show you my Python scripts for adding XPresso and Sound to Cinema quickly.

    I'm still tweaking the sound script for 100% automation. Please feel free to open them up in the script editor and learn! If you have any suggestions, let me know.

    UPDATE
    I've made a slight update to Create Sound Null which copies the path of the file to the clipboard eliminating the cut step - just paste into the file field and hit return!

    Thanks for watching,
    Andy

    PS - For those that follow the tuts I've upgraded my microphone, and I think it sounds a lot better. If you're interested in an affordable mic check it out! t.co/HxgHWpNj

  5. In part two I show you how to finish the broadcast trailer for a fictional TV schedule in After Effects.

    We'll be taking the passes we rendered from Cinema 4D in part one and compositing them in After Effects.

    We'll add the show titles and animate them and we'll add colour correction and depth of field to complete the spot.

    In some cases I've shortened sequences so that you won't have to watch me bumble through repetitive tasks. However, I have left some mistakes in because we can all learn from our mistakes ;-)

    Thanks for watching,
    Andy
