  1. Hey Dave, im a big fan of this channel. im always thankful for the resources you guys put out. i have a question. There’s a clip in the show American Gods that has been bugging my mind for some time now. this is the link to the clip https://youtu.be/DPq–fvKXdA?t=116 (when Mr World touches his head.) and also here https://youtu.be/jCKiHlu5eIE?t=50 . is it possible you do a tutorial to show how one can achieve such effects? Thank you in advance

    1. Cheers Leon, glad to hear mate! You could do this effect with the new fields in C4D v20, use the concepts in this video https://youtu.be/gwoCcPmXGg8 you can clone cuges on the same way similar to what the have on that guy. You could also use XParticles to get something like that, I have some XParticles tutes in the pipeline…

  2. Thanks Dave. I LOVE the tutorial and GOD BLESS YOU for you good work done. I will be very happy if you”d add the final render settings octane, I mean the final work preview. Thanks once again Teacher.

  3. Thanks for uploading great tutorial video.
    I apologize for my poor English.
    Could you upload lighting & material tutorial video?

  4. Hi Dave! Do you have a file how to make a background? And then I tried nothing. If you can discard the file with this background.

    1. Hi mate, the course has that full scene ready to render in octane and c4d standard if that’s what you’re looking for;)

    1. Hi mate, you dont need octane to complete this course. It’s mainly about creating the abstract shapes. Theres one lesson on setting up the render in c4d standard and one for octane for those who have it;)

    2. @CG Shortcuts awesome, thanks for clearing that up. it’s annoying when some tutorials require all these extra paid-plugins to get the desired effect. cheers.

    1. Cheers Mographer! If you make something cool feel free to post it up on our Facebook Group! Our New Monthly Challenge is on now and we’ve got some awesome prizes to give away too!
