    What you'll learn

    Hi, my name is Christian. Welcome to the Course!

    I am a motion designer and 3D generalist with over 9 years experience in the industry. 

    I have only recently started to create online courses.

    What will you learn?

    You will learn to use the new VDB Modeling tool in Cinema 4D. As well as the combination of deformers, fields, vertex maps and octane materials. And some basic light setup.

    - Octane Render

    In this course I will show you how to easily create a match using VDB Modeling. Then we will transform it into a burnt match with the help of vertex maps, deformer and fields. We will also create and integrate some Octane materials.

    We will take care of the following material contents:

    -Creating the Matschstick Model with VDB Modelling

    -Setting up the Camera and lights
