In this tutorial we’ll look at how to create a neon sign.
We start off with our path-work inside of Illustrator, then importing it into Cinema 4D.
Learn how to create neon tubing, and get a small taste of building procedural textures inside of Cinema 4D.
As always, comments are appreciated – better yet, post some examples of the cool neon signs you’ve made!
PS: IF you want to follow along with my Illustrator file, download it here.
Often ideas for tutorials arise when experimenting inside of Cinema 4D and trying out some ideas you’ve seen online before or have thought of and pushing yourself to discover ways of achieving them inside Cinema 4D.
In this tutorial, we’ll cover a quick and easy way to make a laser scan an object inside of Cinema 4D. This laser beam reacts well with all objects and is a sure-fire way to create a realistic laser scan for all your animations and motion graphics.

As cool as sweep nurbs are, they lack the control that loft nurbs have over the profile. Loft nurbs fall short when it comes to animating the splines like sweep nurbs can, so in this new tutorial, I’ll show you how to combine the best of both.
Using a loft nurbs but having the control of being able to animate splines in.
As always comments are appreciated.
In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to centre the Z Axis of your MoText, allowing better rotations when using rotation effectors.
As usual, comments are always appreciated.
The inner creative and explorer in each and any one of us has a rule when it comes to pin art impression toys. The rule is, you have to pick it up and see what your hand (or any other object near by) looks like extruded in pins.
A recent project of mine lead me to modeling one of these awesome gadgets and in the process I had a few learning curves which I thought it best to share with you guys.
Will get back to part 2 of Extruded Text tutorial later this week.
Hope you have fun and as usual, subscribe to the feed, comment down below and have a great time learning C4D!
In this first of a two part tutorial, we’re gonna learn how to use the powerful built-in tools for Cinema 4D, and replicate the iconic Nik Ainley (Shiny Binary) extruded text effect.
Hope you all enjoy it and as usual, feel free to post comments and suggestions below.
