NAB-2015-Lighting-and-Octane-Rendering

Lighting and rendering is probably one of the hardest parts of producing beautiful 3D renders. With Octane being the popular renderer of choice nowadays, every Cinema 4D user should take a look at what all the fuss is about. With our partnership with Cineversity, the Dojo is able to showcase some of the best presentations on lighting and rendering in Cinema 4D from NAB 2015. Organized and separated into digestible chunks, I hope these four presentations will help you get an inside look at production standard rendering and lighting techniques that will take your skills to the next level.
