Approachable Homework + Assignments

 

ONE BITE AT A TIME

 

We've designed this course for working professionals. It is designed for people with full time jobs. We understand that many of you have demanding full-time workloads, families, kids, and a busy life as a creative. This is why you have up to 12 months to finish the course, if you need. PLUS LIFETIME access to the tutorials.

 

The course is 6 consecutive weeks of assignments, Live Q&A's, and assigned work. If you cannot attend a specific Live Q&A, it is recorded for you and available to watch at your convenience. If you feel like you can manage the course, tests, and assignments on your own you can successfully manage to complete the course in a longer time period, if you wish.

 

The course and the Cinema 4D Software will be available for up to 12 months from the start of the course as well. So if you would like to take this course at your own pace, the PROEDU.io platform is designed to allow you to take your time and finish assignments on YOUR SCHEDULE. All students that complete the course will be issued a certificate of completion from PRO EDU and will have the option to take the Maxon Cinema 4D Certification Exam to test their knowledge in the application.

In addition to the 3 CGI For Photographers tutorials that are part of your weekly tutorial homework, we have made additional and exclusive video tutorials and content specifically for the certification preparation. This type of video content is unlocked each week and gives you additional content to help you prepare for the certification prep exam . This content broadens the Cinema 4D Application from just photography to give you a wider knowledge base if what is included and may contain special guest artists, interviews, and experts to teach you the fundamentals with up to date info.

IS CINEMA 4D HARD TO LEARN?<br>

This is a common question that every creative asks. It's the #1 most asked question, so we've dedicated an entire BLOG POST and video interview here that explores that question with Master Trainer Dustin Valkema and CGI for photographers course student Ashley Murrel.

Octane is not part of Maxon Cinema 4D and is an option for a render engine type. In this course, teacher's from Maxon will introduce Maxon's internal render engine and you will have free access to Cineversity to learn how to use Maxon's render engine.
