Cinema 4D Basecamp
Cinema 4D Basecamp : Learn Cinema 4D, from the ground up, in this intro to Cinema 4D course from EJ Hassenfratz. This course will get you comfortable with basics of modeling, lighting, animation and many other important topics for 3D Motion Design. You’ll learn basic 3D principles and best-practices, laying the foundation to tackle more advanced subjects in the future.
Learn Cinema 4D from the Ground Up
Understanding the basics of Cinema 4D is like having a superpower. Adding 3D to your toolkit is one of the best ways to up your value and expand your capabilities as a Motion Designer. The trouble is, Cinema 4D can be tricky to learn. Cinema 4D Basecamp will take you from zero to “wow, I’m really comfortable in Cinema 4D” in just a few weeks. This class is designed for artists with little to no experience in the software, getting you up to speed on all of the key aspects of Cinema 4D.
What is the course format?
Our flexible course format makes it possible to be engaged from anywhere in the world on your own schedule. All of our courses are taught completely online through pre-recorded lesson videos, podcasts, and handouts. Students typically receive homework assignments twice per week, which have soft deadlines. All student work is critiqued by our highly trained Teaching Assistants. School of Motion TA’s are professional motion designers with real life experience in the industry. They will be there for you throughout the entire session to critique your work in our proprietary critique portal. Our TA’s are able to critique as many versions of your work as you would like to submit during the duration of the session; so you get the feedback you need to sharpen your skills. During the course you will be invited to a private Facebook group that contains all of the Teaching Assistants and students in your session. This is a great tool for connecting, asking or answering questions, sharing thoughts or insights, and winning cool contests!

- Windows 10 64-bit on Intel or AMD 64-bit CPU with SSE3 support or MacOS 10.12.6+ with 64-bit CPU running on Intel-based Apple Macintosh
- 4 GB RAM (8 GB or more recommended), OpenGL graphics card supporting OpenGL 4.1 (dedicated GPU recommended)
- The GPU renderer requires an NVIDIA or AMD graphics card on Windows or AMD on MacOS that supports OpenCL 1.2 or newer. Metal support requires MacOS 10.14.6 or newer. We recommend at least 4 GB VRAM for GPU rendering.
Do I need to own Cinema 4D to take this course?
We have an agreement with Maxon that they will give you a complimentary Cinema 4D license to use during the course. You will not need to have your own license. Here’s how it will work:
During the first week of the course we reach out to MAXON, they then create license codes for each student enrolled in C4D Basecamp and apply it to your email, the email you used to enroll into the course. You will be able to access this license by the end of the 2nd week of the class.
For orientation week, we recommend downloading the 14-day trial version of Cinema 4D to complete your orientation-week assignment.
Once the license from MAXON arrives you can activate it and this will last you until the very end of your extended critique.
