Frequently asked questions

Why is it so cheap, what's the catch?

We believe learning should be affordable to all so we try to keep the prices as low as we possibly can. All proceeds go back into CG Shortcuts so we can pay for our software and hosting, and so we can keep on spreading the C4D love.

What do I get with Membership?

When you become a member you get instant access to Tutorials, Lessons, Courses, Series, Project Files, Discounts and Help and Support via our Discord Community. View the full list of what's included here.

What Software do I need?​

There are many tutorials included with membership, covering mainly Cinema 4D, Redshift and Octane. We also look at Daz Studio and a few small plugins. Cinema 4D is really the only software you need though - Redshift now comes free with the software (CPU version) so we recommend using Redshift Renderer (however most renderers are very similar these days so the concepts shown in either renderer will be applicable to the other.

You can get a free trial version of Cinema 4D and Redshift here.

What are your office hours?

7am – 3pm Sunday to Thursday AEST (UTC +10). We're based in Australia.

What is lifetime membership?

Lifetime membership gives you access to everything on our site, all courses, all tutorials, all downloads and support, as well as the ability to request content and vote for what topics we cover next. Unlike the Monthly or Yearly membership, lifetime is yours forever so you also get unlimited access to anything we add in the future (we upload new stuff pretty much every week).

How do I become a member?

  1. Add a membership to the cart.
  2. Create an account at checkout.
  3. Check your email for your invoice and set your new password.
  4. When you log in you will now have access to everything included in your membership
  5. You can manage your membership from the 'ACCOUNT' menu.

When will I be charged for renewal?

Monthly is charged Monthly from the date you joined.

Yearly is charged yearly from the date you joined.

Lifetime is charged only once and does not renew - you have access forever.

Do you offer refunds on membership?

It's super rare, but yes;) We do offer refunds on Yearly and Lifetime memberships only - full details on our refunds page.

What's the difference between this and Patreon Membership?

Membership here on our website is a more complete package because Patreon has several limitations. Here's the key advantages on each platform:

Membership here

  • Includes Full Courses (Yearly + Lifetime)
  • Includes Redshift Material Library
  • Includes more digital assets (Due to Patreon file size limits)
  • Is better organised into categories and sections
  • Better search options
  • Better video lesson viewer
  • Better quality subtitles (Directly from script)

Membership Patreon

  • More convenient if you already use Patreon
  • Videos can be viewed offline via Patreon App
Aside from that, both memberships include new content every week, the ability to vote for content, the private Discord Server and support.

What happens when my membership expires or is cancelled?

You will have access until the renewal date, if you have chosen to cancel prior to renewal you will not be charged, but you will lose access to all member benefits (courses, files etc).

NOTE: Lifetime Memberships are not charged a renewal.

I cant access the course I purchased

cgshortcuts.COM is now a membership site with content only accessible to members (to keep things nice and simple).

If you purchased any of our courses separately you can access them at our dedicated courses site CG Shortcuts Courses available here at cgshortcuts.NET. You can even still purchase standalone courses there as well - but most courses are now included with membership.
