Introduction to CINEMA 4D SDK Video Tutorial


I just uploaded another video tutorial.

I don't know why, but when I came home yesterday from a talk I gave I was in the right mood to record. Because this one, I have been wanting to do for a while. So, ....

In This Episode

We will kick it off with a brief tour of what’s included with the CINEMA 4D SDK.

Then I will show you two ways of accomplishing the same goal: setting up your very own plugin.

The first way will have me demonstrate briefly how to manually copy bits and pieces from the SDK examples such that you are left with a starting point for your own plugin.

The second way will allow me to show off how my recently released CINEMA 4D Plugin Wizard application makes this process even simpler and quicker.

Once we set up our bare-bones template, I will then show you how to create your very own shader plugin:

a sexy turbulence-based noise shader.

Part 2 of the series is out!

Further customizing our result from last episode, we are going to be adding a slider to the user interface to control the octaves of the turbulence function. Along the way I am going to be filling in a lot of the missing blanks I glossed over in the first episode.

I am going to be showing you what makes up our source files, our resource files and how it all comes together.
