Cinema 4D (3rd Edition), available from Focal Press, walks you through the essential concepts and techniques of the R12 version (all modules) of the popular 3D animation software. This new edition of the book is subtitled "An Artist's Project Sourcebook," and it offers a hands-on approach to learning Cinema 4D. To that end the book includes a DVD that's packed full of project files and short, playful tutorials to get you going.

The book helps you master Cinema 4D R12's improved workflow and scene management as well as its enhanced animation timeline and searchable object manager. It also covers the software's integrated color management, white balance, camera deformer & new deformers, new mirror functions, the numerous additions to its After Effects export, and its Multiple Picture Viewer windows, including full-screen mode.

The third edition of the book also provides quick starts to other modules of Cinema 4D, such as Hair, Sketch and Toon, Advanced Render, Dynamics, and Thinking Particles.
