This is delivered as a Live Online “Virtual Class” - What is a Virtual Class?

Building upon the foundation in Cinema 4D that you will have when completing the Yellow Belt and Green Belt courses, this three-day course will take the user into the more advanced regions of the program that most training courses often neglect to cover. You will learn how to control and create more complex animations using Cinema 4D’s advanced features, producing more time-effective workflows and impressive results. This course is also ideal for those who already know the basics of Cinema 4D, and would like to learn more about the deeper functions of the software.


Who is this course for?

Anyone who has completed the jumpstart or Yellow Belt and Green Belt courses, or those who have learned Cinema 4D independently, and would like to jump into the advanced features of the software.


Assumed Knowledge

You will be assumed to know the content on the Yellow Belt and Green Belt courses.

      The team are always really friendly and the classes are a great mix of practical and theoretical. Mark Gatter is an excellent tutor and you do come out feeling like a total expert.

    2. Tim Joshua

      Excellent facilities; knowledgeable and amiable tutor. The next time I’m looking for a training course, I’ll certainly look at Academy Class first.

    3. Liesl Febbraio

      One of the best instructors I’ve had

    4. Richard Brown

      Excellent. Would have liked an extra day for character animation.
