The low-poly look is exploding right now and everybody wants to experiment with this trend. Throughout this course we'll learn a few techniques for capturing this look and creating a poster in CINEMA 4D. This CINEMA 4D course is a great place to start learning the software if you're a graphic designer with a desire to get into 3D. We will learn how to use existing models and transform them into low-poly works of art. Then we will learn what it takes to make a very professional looking background and lighting set-up. After that, we'll render our shot and take our images into Photoshop to begin compositing and adding our typography. You'll learn some great tricks for integrating type into a 3D shot to make it look like it was part of the 3D render. You'll also see how to do some color correction and add the finishing touches that you can use in all kinds of graphic design work in your own projects. By the end of this course, you'll have some great techniques for beginning working in CINEMA 4D as a designer, and you'll have added a few Photoshop secrets to your bag of tricks. With that said, let's jump into CINEMA 4D to learn about retopology. Software required: CINEMA 4D Studio R16.
