C4DTraining would like to see what you’ve got. The rules will be simple:

1) Don’t talk about Battle of the Frames (ok, I had to do it) actually, please do tell your friends.
2) You must use Cinema 4D in your entry. The majority of the work should be done in C4D. What is “the majority”? Use your best judgment.
3) The limit is 15 seconds. Music and or sound FX are encouraged
4) Post your video to Vimeo and include a link back to this post.
5) Leave a comment here with a link to your video and I’ll add it to the channel.

Problem with Edit on Tutorial

Apparently during the editing, a key section was left out. We have finally gotten around to fixing it and updating the tutorial. Our apologies…we try our best to keep that from happening.

Please check out the updated tutorial.
