IM Innovations conducted a one-and-a-half-day workshop for Architecture students at NUS School of Design & Environment on the 25th and 26th of February, 2016. The students who attended were interested to find out how Cinema 4D can be used in their workflow to enrich their architectural visualisations.
The objective of the workshop was to empower students on how Cinema 4D can enhance their workflow with efficiency and flexibility to create impressive architectural visualisations. Cinema 4D’s rendering engine and animation capabilities are highly valued by the architecture industry worldwide. Through learning Cinema 4D, the students’ expanded skill set would place them in good stead in their future careers in the architectural industry.
Living up to Cinema 4D’s reputation for its ease-of-use, the students were able to learn to use the software quickly in spite of having little or no experience in using such software. The workshop covered many of the unique features that Cinema 4D has to offer. The students were especially enthusiastic in MoGraph, the 3D Motion Graphics module, where they immediately grasp the ease of creating animation with visual effects involving a breakdown of the construction of a building. They were also keen in the Motion Tracker and photo-matching tools which allow them to quickly overlay and composite new buildings created with Cinema or other CAD software into photos or videos of an existing environment.
After the workshop ended, all the students who attended were interested to get a Cinema 4D Student License. Some have already in mind how they would use Cinema 4D for upcoming projects and assignments.
