Lighting Rendering Compositing Diamonds With Cinema 4D and After Effects

SilverwingVFX covers the last stage of his realistic Diamonds series with a look into lighting, rendering, and compositing.

This new tutorial (or long tip) from SilverwingfVFX (Raphael Rau) covers the last few processes for creating natural diamonds in Cinema 4D using Octane Renderer.

The series had a dive into creating those Brilliant Cut Diamonds to a technical degree, all to get them to look as accurate as possible.

Watch Rau show some methods for modeling brilliant cut diamonds here, with rendering considerations here.

“A lot of research went into this part of the Diamond Series,” Rau says as he dives deep into aberration, dispersion, wavelength colors, and refractive material theory.
