This overview lesson will provide the essential knowledge we’ll need for this course. Michael will walk you through the project brief and creative deck, and discuss narratives, storyboards and references. Next, you’ll learn the foundational principles of Michael’s procedural workflow in Cinema 4D, followed by workspace customizations, and an introductory software technique session.
1. Storyboard Sketches
2. Pull ref: 8-12 images
3. Create base geo
1. Create narrative 2. Three variations of the geo 3. Create a deck
Join the discussion!
Homework can be cool.
Check out some of the amazing work Getting Started students have created by doing their homework.

Typical hierarchies - I am wondering, are animations in viewport in cinema really that slow? I am not sure how to tweak animation when I get 1 fps for example even 8 core CPU ryzen 3700x.

“Building the Base Geo” @ 8:49, in R25 the “Falloff” tab on the Plain Effector is now called Fields. Double-click in the Fields tab to create the spherical shape by default. The spherical field will be added to the Object Manager (as a child of the Plain Effector) and you can then change the shape and size of the falloff field from the Field object's properties. Falloff changes at ~13:30 are under Field object “Remapping” tab (spline in Contour → Curve).

The audio appears to be broken. Please fix this, the chapter is impossible to follow without it.

I like the breakdown of something a lot of people don't go over. In regards to deck creation, will you enlighten us on how your creating these documents ie which programs and whats the best method in creating these (hopefully with as little time possible). I have used Adobe Bridge in the past, but i wonder if there is a better way to create my general pdf template.

Just to let you know that I have started the course and so far I think this is great. Your way of explaining things is extremely good and I am enjoying it a lot. So far I have only done the 1st chapter, cant wait to get into the other ones :) I see you have another one, but I am not so much into animation as into creating great looking still frames. Looking forward to more like this one .....
One thing I think already mentioned to someone within learnsquared, is the possibility of getting discount for some of the license software that is needed in the courses learnsquared offers. For example, I dont have Xparticles yet, only the demo version. It would be great if you could get agreements with these companies to offer a kind of student discount if you get their software though your courses. Just an idea.
Thanks again !

I purchased the course, but it's still locked. It's been 2 days already. It's over $100 per course. You guys should have better system. Even the cheaper tutorials have the better system than this.

I have the same question!

Because of my busy schedule, I began to watch Getting Started section today,
but after I paused it a hour ago, the section looks like LOCKED. Other three sections are playable.
How can I keep watching Getting Started tutorial videos?
