1. In this tutorial I'm going to show you how to create an iridescent texture in Cinema 4D. I'll start by building up a scene to apply materials to. I'll then go over the Spectral Shader that applies prismatic color reflexes, or pearl like effects to your specular channel. We'll cover all the options inside the Spectral Shader as well as how lights and camera view can affect how the effect is applied to your object. Finally I'll give you some hints as to how you can create a soapy bubble type of effect using the Spectral Shader. Have fun and experiment!
    If you have any questions be sure to post it in the comments section and if you create any cool iridescent textures, be sure to share it with me! Thanks for watching!

  2. In this tutorial, I'm going to walk you through how you can create some cartoonish mountains. First I'll cover the landscape object, followed by how to use a Terrain Mask and Cel Shader to add color to our mountain. If you're not familiar with the Cel Shader, be sure to check out this tutorial all about it and how you can use it for flat 2D shading (eyedesyn.com/tutorials/using-the-cel-shader-to-apply-an-illustrative-2d-style-to-3d-objects-in-cinema-4d/). Finally, I'll show you how you can turn your mountain into a low poly one in a click of a button!

    As always, if you have any questions, be sure to post it in the comments section and if you create anything cool using this technique, be sure to share it with me! Thanks for watching!

  3. In this tutorial I'm going to show you a really cool workflow for animating or morphing between 2D style, illustrative objects using Cinema 4D. First, we will start by going over things to consider when designing your objects to achieve a nice morph. Then, I'll introduce you to a super powerful feature that is normally reserved for character animation, the Pose Morph tag. I'll demonstrate how to use the Pose Morph tag creatively and show how easy it is to record object states and then animate through the poses by simply keyframing sliders. Finally, I'll show you how to add some overshoot to the morph animation to give it a nice organic bounce effect.

  4. In this AskGSG user Ruedifly brought this inspired animation to my attention from Polynoid (polynoid.tv/rebird). Chris focuses on the idea of an object getting wrapped up and tangled in a stretchy piece of cloth and tearing it's way free using cloth dynamics in C4D.

  5. See the full post on greyscalegorilla: greyscalegorilla.com/blog/2011/08/surface-deformer-tutorial/#comments

    In this tutorial i show you how to use the surface deformer to add additional movement to your geometry. This can be combined with other effectors/deformers to create just about anything.

    I used the techniques shown in this tutorial to create this ident/example : vimeo.com/27273122
