Why Go Pro?

New Content Weekly.

To keep things up to date with all the latest workflows, tools and techniques – we add new content every week – whether it be tutorials, project files, templates, materials or 3D models, we’re constantly adding content to membership to make it bigger and better.

You decide what we teach.

Aside from covering all the most important aspects of the software, our members actually decide what content we add next. You can request a video covering a specific topic (maybe something you’ve been struggling with for a while) and we’ll try to address your questions directly. As the requests come rolling in, members also have the opportunity to vote on topics and categories we cover so content is always geared toward what you actually want to learn.

Help with your projects now.

When you join you’ll also get access to our exclusive Facebook Group where you can ask questions, share your projects, get feedback and chat to students and instructors directly. We’re there to help everyday, so if you’re struggling with something we’ve got your back.

Dave Bergin

Hey it's Dave from CG Shortcuts! I'm a motion graphics artist now based in sunny Australia.

I've been working in the industry for 15 years, most of which was spent at various studios in London UK (I was lucky enough to do loads of travel as well!).

I've worked for brands like Disney, Fox, Porsche, American Express and more, mainly for UK, US and European clients.

I'm now freelancing and teaching right here at CG!

What's the difference between Pro Lifetime and Yearly vs Monthly?

Pro Lifetime and Yearly include all courses and digital assets we have to offer (check above for full list of courses - does not include collab courses or courses by third parties).

Pro Monthly gives you access to everything Pro Lifetime and Yearly offer but with only the one course included (Cinema 4D Pro - with new content added weekly) and does not include the Redshift Material Library.

What Software do I need?​

There are many courses included in Pro 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.

Pro Membership here only

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

Pro Membership Patreon

  • More convenient if you already use Patreon
  • Videos can be viewed offline via Patreon App
Aside from that, both memberships include Cinema 4D Pro which means new content is available every week, the ability to vote for content and the private group 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: Pro Lifetime Memberships are not charged a renewal.
