Packt published its introductory title on Cinema 4D this month, Cinema 4D Beginner's Guide. Written by Jen Rizzo, create a photorealistic interior scene with an animated camera.

CINEMA 4D is a 3D modeling, animation and rendering application which is capable of procedural and polygonal/submodeling, animating, lighting, texturing, rendering, and common features found in 3d modelling applications. Cinema 4D enables everyone from professionals to hobbyists to create stunning 3D animations.

Cinema 4D Beginner's Guide will take readers step by step towards creating and animating a 3D scene, with tips and techniques for everything from photorealistic rendering to motion graphics. It will also provide users with additional features through a series of mini projects: creating motion graphics, exporting a stylized non-realistic image, adding hair and creating cloth and also how to connect pieces that all work together by exploring node-based programming in Xpresso, then wrap everything up with an introduction to compositing in Adobe After Effects.

Furthermore, it will also help users learn how to use the MoGraph module to create dynamic motion graphics, how to link parameters with Xpresso (Cinema 4D's node-based programming language), and are guided through mini-projects to explore additional tools for non-photorealistic illustrations, hair creation and cloth rendering.

This book is for designers and artists with a basic proficiency in animation or computer graphics, as well as professionals who are familiar with other 3D animation software. This book is available now in print, eBook, Kindle and select library formats.
