Start your career in 3D Broadcast and Motion Design in just 15 Days

Cinema 4D is fast, intuitive and delivers dazzling imagery. This course is suitable for people in any industry looking to add 3D to their workflow. This course is aimed at people who are looking to add 3D to their portfolio of skills and also those who are interested in 3D motion design. By the end of the course you’ll be able to create your own 3D designs and animation and be ready to take on real briefs from clients.

Who is this course designed for?

This course is designed for beginners with little or no basic knowledge of Cinema 4D. This class covers the core concepts, approaches and techniques required for starting a career in 3D broadcast design.

What system configuration will I need?

Students should bring their laptops which should meet or exceed the following hardware configurations.

  • Windows® 8, Windows® 7, Vista or XP
  • 32-bit/64-bit Intel or AMD multi-core processor
  • 2 GB of RAM minimum (8 GB recommended)
  • 16 GB of free disk space for installation
  • Qualified hardware-accelerated OpenGL® graphics card
  • 3-button mouse

Will I get a certificate at the end of my training?

Students will qualify for a certificate of training only if the pass the assessment exam at the end of the training course. Final score is based on attendance (10%), tests (30%) and a final examination (60%) based on the standard grading system
