Learn to Model & Texture a photo-real Pint Glass with Cinema 4D

Creating a realistic glass material in Cinema 4D can be a real challenge. In this Cinema 4D tutorial, I work to recreate a pint glass with multiple painted decals as closely as possible. Working from a photo reference when doing 3D modeling and texturing can be a great way to learn, and present unique challenges. For this one I took a look at the pint glasses I ordered for my wedding, and see if I can recreate them in 3D. My wife is always telling me how she wants more 3D renderings of our stuff!

This Cinema 4D tutorial covers basic 3D modeling and texturing techniques, as well as working with Global Illumination in Cinema 4D.

Part 2 of This Cinema 4D Tutorial covers adding dynamics simulations and camera animations.
