Cinema 4D Light Dome Update

Cinema 4D light dome update. I’ve made a small update to the C4D light dome preset and thought I’d share it with you all.

Jigsaw Puzzle Tutorial

I recently completed a tutorial for the Maxon’s You Tube channel. It goes into quite a bit of detail, so for that reason it is split into 4 parts. Something you might be interested in? I’ve copied some of the blurb from the You Tube page here so you get an idea of what I…
