RenderReady Al Heck is back doing a Cinema 4D and After Effects tutorial where he creates a sweet looking diamond complete with caustics, prism shift effects, and of course the modeling as well.
“Put together this quick-er tutorial on how to make a diamond. It goes over the way I would model one, then a little info about caustics, and finally how to get that prism effect. Also, C4D and AE are put into one file. P.S. – this is a quick render. If you really want to do a high detail rendering, you want to turn on anti-aliasing to best rather than geometry. But that will also increase your render times and I am not known for my patience. Enjoy!”
