C4D: Interior Glass Effect

Scroll to top
Read Time: 1 min

In today's tutorial new author Zachary O'Conner will be showing us how to create a glass effect in Cinema4D, using a method of rendering typically used for interiors to give it a nice finished look. In this particular tutorial we'll use some text in a basic room to show off the effect, yet it can really be used on anything at all. The lighting is really quite simple to setup, as this tutorial is aimed at the beginner crowd.

After modeling, lighting and rendering the scene in Cinema 4D, we'll jump in to Photoshop (any version will do) and do some minor post work to give the final product a little bit of kick. I should also note that the render times of the work we do in Cinema 4D will be significant, especially if rendering at a high resolution. Hope you enjoy!
