New Battle of the Frames

Battle of the Frames contest

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.

Deadline is September 14, 2010 Midnight – Pacific Standard Time.

There is a prize this time. Thanks to Jan Frischmuth of Smart Tween for providing a copy of both Smart Tween AND Smart PRS for our winner.

Problem with Edit on Tutorial

Our tutorial showing how to use object buffers and external compositing tags in Cinema 4D to add particles in After Effects had a slight glitch. 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.
