Cinema 4D and Octane – GeoBoil Effect

In this Cinema 4D Course by CG Shortcuts you’ll learn how to use particles with mograph to create this popular Geoboil effect in C4D. We’ll also take you through rendering with Octane Renderer.

Geoboil Geometry in Cinema 4D

In this Cinema 4D Geoboil Course, we’ll use a particle and mograph setup to create the geoboil effect. Then we’ll deform the mesh with deformers in Cinema 4D.

Finishing Touches in Octane

Also in the course, we’ll create materials, light our scene and render in Octane Render. We’ll make a sub surface scattering slime material that has thinner and thicker properties depending on how the mesh is being deformed.

Subtitles – Closed Captions

This course can be viewed with English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Arabic, Chinese or Korean subtitles. The audio is in English.

Create a GeoBoil Effect with the techniques you’ve learnt in the course – the sky is the limit! You now have the skills so lets see how creative you can get!

You can start with the project we’ve supplied or build one completely from scratch.

Upload a still of your final rendered GeoBoil Effect or share it on our CG Shortcuts Facebook Group!


You’ll also get access to the final project file (with Octane setup and similar setup in Standard Renderer) so you can use it as a starting point for your own creations.

Before you go…
We'll create a GeoBoil Effect with Particles and Mograph. We'll then look at deforming the mesh to create the effect. And finally we'll create materials and light and render in Octane.
Lifetime access to the course videos (1 hour over 5 video lessons), 1 x C4D Project File and Exclusive support.
You need Maxon Cinema 4D (many of the techniques are achievable in older versions but Version 21 and above is recommended). You also need the OctaneRender Plugin for Cinema 4D (Version 2019 and above is recommended but the concepts in this course apply to all versions). Don't worry if you don't have these yet as you can download a free demo to start learning straight away!
You need the OctaneRender Plugin for Cinema 4D from the Otoy website. It's available to rent or buy and is quite affordable. The concepts in this course apply to all versions but Version 2019 and above is recommended.
A basic level of Cinema 4D and Octane Render should be fine for this course.

No new announcements this week.
