Cinema 4D R17 - New Pen Tool Features and Updates

There've been some major updates the pen tool in Cinema 4D R17. I've been a long time user of Adobe illustrator, and for years I've been doing a lot of my vector work in illustrator and bringing it into Cinema 4D, just because of my familiarity with the illustrator shortcuts and tools.

The updates to the Pen Tool in Cinema 4D R17 bring the tools up to the standard set in illustrator, and beyond with some additional functions and techniques. This includes the new C4D R17 Pen Tool, Smooth Tool, Arc Tool, and add/subtract options, all new to Cinema 4D R17. This video also covers 3D modeling tips and tricks in Cinema 4D R17.

There are so many new features in Cinema 4D R17, I put together several more videos taking a deeper look at new features. Check out these additional topics for more coverage of Cinema 4D R17!
