Cine Designer Featured DP Lewis Potts

I got into using Cine Designer after looking at what you are making on Instagram, but always thinking I couldn’t do it because I have zero idea about anything 3D.

To be honest if it wasn’t for your tutorial videos I probably wouldn’t have bothered, because I think a huge misconception is that you need a really good computer to run it.

Lewis uses an Apple Macbook Pro to run Cinema 4D and Cine Designer.

Your videos gave a simple explanation of how to set up a project, build a scene and pre-vis a shoot to make something similar to what you are making, with out all of the other technical parts that come with Cinema 4D.

So far its been great, another reason I started using it is because I have a few bigger projects coming up this year that I think it will be great for, so I thought if I could build some key scenes in 3D in the pre production and basically do what your doing, it would make the director, producer and everybody in every other department happy that we’re all on the same page.

Also, it’s just another great skill to have to make yourself more employable.

The bedroom one is from a short film I was shooting, this was just from a pick up shoot day of us getting a couple scenes in a house to finish off shooting a film. I didn’t really need to build it in 3D, Im just getting as much practice as I can at the moment for bigger projects coming up in the future, so any opportunity is a good one at the moment to practice!

The car ones and the techno crane one in the desert are just from me learning how to use the program too. Having the ability to see how specular objects render is pretty great!
