MadMapper in it’s core is an intuitively simple and easy tool for creating video mapping projections. It removes a lot of the confusion related to this medium, effectively demystifying the process and allows you, the artist or designer to focus on creating your content instead of solving technical difficulties and makes the experience of mapping textures to physical objects in real time fun. Using real projects created with MadMapper as an example, we will give you an overview of its different features and user interface.


Visution Mapio is a powerful solution for creating projection shows. Now you can work not only with the standard screen, but also with any inclines, including cylindrical and spherical and various shapes. Unlimited slices will allow you to separate videos to cover any space. You can use multiple projectors to organize panoramic and 3D scenes.

How Already Been Chewed combined live action and animation for a magical Mammoth Mountain spot.

by Meleah Maynard

Portland-based brand strategy firm, Nemo, doesn’t ordinarily use 3D or animation in their work. But after seeing some recent projects by design and motion graphics studio, Already Been Chewed (ABC), they decided to try something different when making a new spot for their longtime client Mammoth Mountain. The result is a fun, action-packed departure from the usual TV spot that mixes live action and animation to illustrate Mammoth Mountain’s motto: Let Fun Rule.

Relying primarily on Cinema 4D and Octane, ABC spent about four months working on and off to create the 30-second spot, which founder and creative director Barton Damer describes as “a big accomplishment” from a team perspective. “We ended up having about 9 or 10 people working on this, including bringing in three different freelances at various points,” he says. “It’s unusual for us to need such a large team but, this time, it was great to have a lot of people to help with some of the workload.”

In this tutorial I’ll go over Cinema 4D R20 and how you can create some damaged or weathered look on your 3D text. We’ll dive into the new volume modeling workflow and take a quick look at the new Fields. I’m loving R20, it’s awesome! Nice work Maxon!

In this tutorial I’ll show you my favorite updates to the Voronoi Fracture Object in C4D R19. I’ll show you how to use connectors, geometry glue, detailing etc. I’ll show how to isolate parts of your model you want to explode by painting a Mograph Weightmap and adding it to our connector. I’ll show you how to do multi stage explosions. I’ll also walk through the new detailing options to show you how to create more realistic cuts and chunks. Last but not least I’ll show you how to texture the inside and outside of your fractured object. I hope it helps!

In this tutorial I collaborate with renderking to show you how to create an organic logo reveal in Cinema 4D. You’ll learn how to use the Voronoi Fracture object and the new Volume Builder and Volume Mesh objects in Cinema 4D R20. This is a 100% procedural technique you can use to reveal logos, text or any objects. Enjoy!

Free C4D “Take Control Effector” Tutorial

In this tutorial I’ll show you the free Cinema 4D Take Control Effector. It’s a fast way to isolate and control a single clone in a cloner object. Super useful!!  This is a free download which you can get here: https://aturtur.com/take-control-effector/

Free C4D “Take Control Effector” Tutorial

In this tutorial I’ll show you the free Cinema 4D Take Control Effector. It’s a fast way to isolate and control a single clone in a cloner object. Super useful!!   The Take Control Effector lets you assume control over any selected clone. Just select the clone ID and then that clone is linked to the Effector. When you move the Effector the clone moves with it in the Effector’s coordinate space.  Besides changing the PSR, you can also modify the clone, set custom clone weight, or change clone color. Take Control Effector works properly with Cloner object when ‘Fix Clone’ checkbox is ticked. There are also checkboxes to activate/deactivate position, scale and rotation linking in a ‘Matrix’ group.  There is a handy ‘Go To Origin’ button that moves the effector to the clone’s original position (before this effector is calculated). This is a free download which you can get here: https://aturtur.com/take-control-effector/

Best Software 2018: PureRef for Motion Design References

In this tutorial/overview I’ll show you my favorite piece of software for 2018. It’s free or choose your price from pureref.com. PureRef is a great way to lay out and navigate all of your design references and inspiration. A key part of starting a new project is gathering inspiration and references to guide you with texture, color, typography, various elements etc. This is also a great way to collaborate with other artists or make sure you’re on the same page with your client.

Cinema 4D Workflow Tutorial: Little Known Feature for Saving Time  In this quick Cinema 4D tutorial I’ll show you how to take a spline and make a perfect offset of it, whether you want an inner offset or outer. This is using the tool called the Create Outline Tool. It’s a great feature to be aware of.

Cinema 4D Workflow Tutorial: Little Known Feature for Saving Time.  In this Cinema 4D tutorial I’ll show you a little known feature to help you manage your scene efficiently. I didn’t know about this till recently and I wish somebody had told me. It’s the Flat Tree or Vertical Tags view settings. I’ll show you how it works!  The Flat Tree option removes all hierarchies (Object manger display only, not internally, which is important to know) and lists all the items in a flat stack. This mode is especially useful when you are selecting many similar objects, such as when you want to assign them to a layer.  The Layers option sorts the items into layer folders, where each folder is named after a layer in the scene and contains the items on it.  The Vertical Tags option splits off the tags from their parent and lists them in a flat tree as well. This way you can easily sort and highlight all the tags you want. This includes material tags, uv tags, phong tags, compositing tags etc.

MATRIX QUANTUM  Til now, studios and artists could spend large portion of project timeframe to setup sophisticated characters, before shot production actually commences. Quantum Human can speed up this process by literally hundreds of times, if not completely eliminate that process.  Since Quantum Human operates natively in Maya while having batch command-line mode, it’s highly customizable to existing production pipelines, or build custom interactive applications. Users can choose which modules to use, instead of entering a whole new application that is often a black box.
