What You’ll Learn in These Videos:

In this Cinema 4D Octane Render & Kitbash3D tutorial, we’ll learn how to retexture the buildings and ensure they’re looking their best in Octane, as well as assembling them like legos into bigger complexes. Then we’ll take them into our environment from last week and integrate them by making sure they’re the right scale and distance from camera, as well as manipulating the landscape to match building placement. Next, we’ll add lots of visible point lights to the buildings, ambient lights for atmosphere, and rim lights to catch edges, as well as astronauts and sci-fi vehicles. Finally, we’ll put the finishing touches on the render and explore a night option for the scene.

In this Cinema 4D Octane Render tutorial, David Ariew will show you how to combine procedural noises to create terrains, then add multiple layers of displacement to them. We’ll look deep into fog settings, composition, lighting, and color matching techniques. Next we’ll learn how to create displacements by baking out C4D’s default noise types, as well as jumping into World Creator for more advanced terrains. Finally, we’ll create canyon walls and a vertical composition, as well as optimizing the scene. See below for Kitbash3D & displacement map links!

In this 2 part Cinema 4D tutorial series, David Ariew will show you how to create beautiful digital nature renders in Octane!

Part 1 – Forester Trees, Grass & Soil and Rock Displacement:

Part 2 – God Rays, Fog, and Custom LUTs:

Helpful Links David mentioned:
Forester
Real Displacement Textures
Osiris LUTs

What You’ll Learn in These Videos:

In Part 1, David will show you how to set up Forester trees and grass with shaders that are both transmissive and glossy, and dial in grass patch settings and random color node for more variation, as well as using vertex maps and procedural noises to create dead zones, and filling those areas with real displacement textures for soil and rocks. In this part 2, we’ll learn how to create god rays and several different foggy looks, as well as lighting techniques. Then we’ll finish up our nature scene from last week by adding in the trees, and taking a look at a new feature for adding custom LUTs. Finally, we’ll explore aerial shots and a nighttime scene with lanterns floating through the woods to see how these techniques can expand to many different situations.
