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 and Insider?

Insider does not include any courses or Pro assets - Insider only gives you access to Tutorial Project Files, Selected Models and Materials (this access is still unlimited and a much better option than purchasing things separately).

Pro Membership gives you access to everything in Insider plus Courses and Pro Downloadable assets - this is our most comprehensive membership and offers great value and savings.

Pro also includes the Cinema 4D Pro Course with new content added weekly and access to the CGShortcuts Pro Private Group.

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.
