Jonathan Winbush offers a quick start guide to creating maps with DEM Earth in C4D.
An old standby to create maps and realistically accurate landscape models in 3D in Cinema 4D is DEM Earth. DEM Earth allows you to use Digital Elevation Models and georeference them in real-time, right in Cinema 4D. This new beginner’s guide by Jonathan Winbush shows how you can get started using DEM Earth to create awesome-looking maps.
DEM Earth automatically downloads the geo-data to build the model in Cinema 4D, and all you have to do is provide a Geographic coordinate.
