In this tutorial series from brothers Stefan and Andrew Surmabojov, you'll learn how to create a stunning 36 second fake video advertisement for the Canon EP-S 50-250mm zoom lens from the ground up. The first three parts of the series delve into the model's creation, as you work through the entire process of building the lens from scratch with Andrew using 3D Studio Max. Throughout the modeling process, you'll use a careful balance of poly modeling and subdivision techniques to accurately re-construct the lens' many details.
After the model is finalized and ready for the next step, you'll take it into Cinema 4D, where Stefan will teach you how to add realistic textures and materials, build the scene lighting and prepare the model for rendering. Where you'll first create a nice pack shot and then setup some animations, which will later be used for the final composite in After Effects.
