- [Instructor] Before we get stuck into this course, I just wanted to mention that this course is not project based, in that we won't be creating a single project from start to finish. There will be a quick start to get you up and running, but the focus on this course is on methods and techniques to build a foundation for working with OctaneRender for Cinema 4D. By watching this course, it isn't going to make you a master of Octane. Only you can do that through practice. Tuning a scene to be just right requires a good grasp of materials, lights, and cameras, and then on top of that, you need to know how to optimize the render settings to get the best image possible without it taking forever to resolve.
It's a balancing act, and it's going to be different for every project you approach. But with practice, you'll be able to use your intuition to adjust the settings of materials, lights, cameras, and the renderer to get the desired outcome. If you have a grasp on how render engines work or how lighting, materials, and camera work in 3D, then you already have a great foundation which will serve you well whilst learning OctaneRender for Cinema 4D. Also, a knowledge of how real world lighting and cameras work will also benefit you.
If you're new to Cinema 4D, then I'd advise you to check out one of the courses in the library for learning cinema 4D and then come back here. Final rendered image is highly subjective, and everyone has different tastes and opinions, so using a render engine is not mechanical. Yes, you can input certain parameters to get a decent result, but to take things further, it's up to you to begin to intuit what a scene needs. So with that said, let's begin.
