Cineversity Global Illuminations Tutorial Series
We've just posted a comprehensive series by Patrick Goski about Cinema 4D's Global Illumination effect that covers:
· Direct and Indirect Light
· GI Calculations
· GI Area Light Attribute
· GI Portals
· Primary GI Methods (Irradiance Cache, Quasi-Monte Carlo)
· Secondary bounces (Irradiance Cache, Quasi-Monte Carlo, Radiosity Maps, Light Mapping
· Working with caches
The series wraps up with two example scenes. The first scene covers working with the Irradiance Cache to render an interior that has an animated camera, and the second explores using the Irradiance Cache or QMC when there are animated objects in the scene.
These tutorials are exclusively available to premium Cineversity members.

Awesome. I'm looking forward to watching it.
Although it would involve programs outside of Cinema, I still think it would be a great idea to do a series on 'finishing techniques', in that no hi-end render you see was ever done without a little post work, and having some guidance and insight into how one can take their renders to another level would be great.

I've only watched the first 5 in this series, but I want to say that I'm very impressed.
I've been using various GI techniques in C4D for years, and although I had a vague understanding of what was happening, this video series dramatically increased up my understating. Very well explained and detailed.
Big thumbs up from me.
I think it's a real shame that this great content is locked behind the Cineversity paywall.

Thanks. I watched them all and Learned a lot. It is always good to repeat the GI-Stuff in my mind.
