MAXON just started a new website, giving informations about certified trainings. You’re now able to book trainings in Authorized Trainings Centers and to finish them by doing a certification test. Those trainings will be held by MAXON Certified Trainers.
As I had the chance to work with MAXON on this new certification system, I am also a proud MAXON Certified Lead Instructor and a Certified Trainer for CINEMA 4D. If you are interested in individual trainings or certified trainings in Germany just get in contact with me.
Sorry for not posting more lately, but the last weeks have been quite bussy for me. My new publishing house Rodenburg Verlag (www.rodenburg-verlag.de) takes a lot of attention. I feel very glad, that my book is receiced so well. Many thanks to all readers and supporters!
Beside this I have been to several events and conferences lately. Starting with the animago award in Potsdam, near Berlin, the CINEMA 4D day in Vienna,Austria and the 3D Network meeting in Duesseldorf. Often combined with trainings and speaches. I really get used to it. It’s so much fun to meet C4D users everywhere and to give informations to users of other 3D packages to help them make the right software decisions.
Just to let you know how things are going. Hope to see you soon in person at some other 3D event or at some training. Just ask me for courses, locations and offers.
After months of hard work and writing, it finally see the light of day: CINEMA 4D 13, The Compendium, Part 1.
In its first part it covers all aspects of Modeling, Texturing and Rendering with CINEMA 4D 13. With more than 850 pages,
over 900 color images and over 5 hours of video content, this is the most complete CINEMA 4D documentation and workshop on the market.
Part 2 will follow early next year, covering Animation, Simulation and Scripting with CINEMA 4D.
German readers can get their copy here:
By preordering now, you will get the book in late october without additional shipping or handling costs.
Today I will head to Graz, Austria again and start recording new video workshops with Video2Brain about CINEMA 4D 13. Stay tuned for details…
Teaming up with Video2Brain, I am glad to be able to offer you a nice selection of German online Trainings right here:
The videos cover interesting topics for CINEMA 4D users, but also for ZBrush, Modo and Adobe products.
Hope you like it!
One of my new trainings that will be released by Video2Brain covers the basics of Vray for CINEMA 4D
This image shows one of the example scenes covered and combines most of the Vray materials, using displacement, translucency, refraction, reflection, Vray Blend- and Override materials.
Here is the german description about this new online Training:
Mit einem typischen Beispielprojekt lernen Sie den V-Ray-Renderer von der Pike auf kennen. Dabei zeigt Arndt von Koenigsmarck Schritt für Schritt, wie Sie Objekte modellieren und an V-Ray-Erfordernisse anpassen, Materialien erstellen und anschließend final rendern.
Dabei kommen ausführlich alle relevanten Material- und Rendereinstellungen und deren Bedeutung für das Bildergebnis zur Sprache sowie das Beleuchten und die GI-Rendermethoden. So werden Sie in wenigen Stunden fit für V-Ray und können dessen Potenzial voll ausschöpfen!
5 1/2 Stunden Laufzeit, 41 Lektionen
I just returned from another bussy week in Austria. First I recorded some new video trainings for video2brain in Graz. After that I visited the C4D event in Salzburg. The following photo shows the video2brain booth I was running there.
Thanks again to Markus Fiala from Softwarediskont.com for the invitation and the smooth organisation!
During the last years, Mr Vincent Ong and his staff built a very active center for 3D interactive digital media solutions and also offers trainig courses for various software tools. I am glad to be able to support them by offering contacts in Europe and bringing in my CINEMA 4D background.
The taken photo shows me within some of the kind employees beside Jasmine Tan (Director of IM INNOVATIONS, 4. person from right) and Vincent Ong (Managing Director of IM INNOVATIONS, 3. person from right) .
Thanks again for that informative and pleasant meeting in Sigapore.
It’s always a pleasure and big fun to record new trainings and workshops for Video2Brain. This time I haven been there in August recording the DVD for CINEMA 4D 12 and some new online tutorials. Located in the beautiful city Graz in Austria it (almost) feels like having a vacation once you find the time to step out of the recording room.
