Cinema 4D Basecamp

Course of study, Sep 2018

Cinema 4D is deep and can be tricky to learn. So I took this in-depth course to get up to speed with all of the key aspects of Cinema 4D.
The course included exercises and challenges based in the world of Motion Design, and using the software just like the pros do. With session-based courses and real Teaching Assistants there critiquing my work.
Here is a summary of what I did and learn from the course.
