Want to learn about the techniques and workflows used in the short film, Flow? This training guide will walk you through the set-ups used in each shot of the film. Learn the pipeline from Cinema 4D, Houdini, Redshift, X-Particles, and After Effects. Get support and feedback while you learn. Join the MoGraph Mentor community and level up your C4D today!
Cinema 4D Launch
Level Up Your 3D Knowledge
Course Format: On-Demand Training
Skill Level: Intermediate-Advanced
Software: Cinema 4D, Redshift, Houdini, X-Particles, Turbulence FD, Forester
Duration: 9 Lessons
Prerequisite: Existing Knowledge of C4D Basics
Learn New Techniques
This project breakdown is NOT like a traditional course that shows everything step-by-step, but rather a full breakdown of each shot in the film. If you already have a working knowledge of C4D, then you’ll love this breakdown of advanced techniques.
See The Workflow
See the entire production workflow quickly. The goal of this breakdown is to demystify the shots in the film so you can see the exact techniques used in each section of the film. This will help you understand how these shots were created from set-up to render.
Improve Your Own CG
For C4D artists with some experience the next step is to start building more complex scenes and photographing them more beautifully. Seeing all the shot breakdowns will help you quickly use these techniques in your own projects.

What you'll learn
Learn how each shot in the film was created. Get support and feedback while you learn.
One of the simplest, yet most important elements of doing a CG film is your general approach to setting up scenes. How much detail is needed for each shot, what will be the main lighting set-ups, and how will you approach the photography?
Creating flora shots in C4D requires a bit of know-how and 3rd party tools to accomplish. See how Nejc setups up this first shot in the film and renders it with Redshift.
Doing simulation-driven work requires a looser workflow than traditional CG production which might start with storyboarding. See how Nejc goes directly into photography after setting up a simulation.
There are several particle simulations in this short film and Nejc will use the right tool for the job depending on the situation. See when and why he uses X-Particles vs Turbulence FD.
This film has stunning CG photography in it. See how the scenes were set up for intentional shadow casting and clever backgrounds to save on time.
Every CG artist has their own bag of preferred tools and assets. In this project breakdown, you’ll see every tool that Nejc’s uses to accomplish the shots in the film. Including where he gets assets from. for this film.
One aspect that stands out in Nejc’s work is the editing. Making use of time-remapping, as well as matching shots based on tempo, creates a cohesive final film out of a series of shots.
Nejc’s used the ACES color management system for this film and in this breakdown he’ll show you why he decided to do this. He also walks through his final After Effects composite to show how the final film took shape.
3D Artist | aka - Twistedpoly
Nejc is a digital artist. With over 10 years of experience in the field, he’s working worldwide, with brands, agencies and studios.
Based in beautiful Ljubljana, Slovenia and working globally, he’s mostly working in a field of bringing high-end stylized abstraction to products and brands, always in search for something fresh. He takes on concepts, design frames, animation and can creatively or technically lead small to mid sized projects.

Why take Flow Project Breakdown?
This course is designed to help artists who have previous experience with Cinema 4D and are ready to move past introductory courses. Once you have a foundation in C4D, the next step is creating better-looking shots and scene builds.
Is there A Live forum?
Yes. Registering for this workshop will give you access to the MoGraph Mentor Discord forum. There you can ask questions, post work and share resources with the wider community.
What will I know by the end?
How every shot in the film was created. Exactly what tools were used in each shot and how those elements work together inside of C4D. How Nejc approaches simulation-driven films that are stunning.
What level do I need?
This is for intermediate to advanced C4D users. If you have never opened C4D, or created any projects with it, then it’s likely the techniques shown won’t make sense to you. So if you have the basics down, then these techniques will be actionable in your own work.
How Do I get a Cinema 4D License?
You can use the 30 day free demo of Cinema 4D, if you don’t already have it. Download the trial here : https://www.maxon.net/en/try
Is there some animation training included in this course?
Yes! You will see how Nejc brought these shots to life with a combination of simulations and custom animations. Again, not for beginners with a step-by-step overview, but made for intermediate to advanced C4D users.
When does it start?
You can start the course as soon as you enroll in it. Learn at your own pace and go back to previous videos as much as you want.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like – across any and all devices you own.
Can I communicate with the mentor?
Yes! Join our Discord forum and ask questions directly.
