 REDSHIFT 3D rendering online course

LFO Design’s Redshift 3D course covers all you need to know about lighting, shading, texturing and rendering. Recording provided by multi-award winning team from featured film VFX industry.

The entire course was recorded in Cinema 4DRedshift 3D environment. 

Cinema 4D platform is very user friendly for beginners and Redshift 3D is an excellent GPU oriented rendering software. For our purposes, it was an ideal combination.

However, It doesn’t matter which software you use, you could be using Blender, Maya, Houdini or 3Ds max... The techniques which we will show you are very similar on all mentioned platforms as all platforms use the same node system workflow. By the end of the course, you will be able to apply them in your preferred environment as well.



 Before and After Comparison 

 As you can see on the Redshift 3D Breakdown examples, we will show you step by step process on how you can make from the basic high poly models without UV (picture on screen left side) to cool and professional looking 3D render (picture on screen right side). 

This can be done by using Redshift 3D and without any other external software.

 The reason why we decided to launch on Kickstarter is simple

We did huge investment and more than 6 dedicated months of our hard work to bring you the best possible product with our VFX know-how. 

On our Kickstarter presentation video, you can see our work in progress and what you can expect from our course.  

 We are now at the final phase of the project, where we need another 5 more weeks to record all 80 Course chapters as per planned. Many of our supporters have requested for more options such as mentor's feedback and more intermediate chapters, etc...  

We are always hearing ideas from you and we would like to produce the best possible course while meeting all your requests. However, all those extra requests would mean  a lot more time , money, effort and resources on our end.   

 Support our project and help us make this campaign a huge success. In return, you will get what you requested for! 

If you need more info, please contact as on Email: info@lfodesign.com 



 Free intermediate level chapter from our course now available!

Please refer to the recently released free chapter about procedural techniques below  as example of what you can expect to learn from our course. 



If the project is successfully funded, we will create 10 Kickstarter Exclusive Chapters, with the most wanted topics of your choice!

Please feel free to leave us comments on what you would like to see in the 10 chapters.

After the end of the campaign, we will select the most requested ideas and announce the 10 selected topics to all our backers in the update section. As we will only start recording bonus chapters in end of Apr 2019, you can expect to receive the 10 new Intermediate bonus chapter by the end of May 2019.  

Check out how works our HDRi maps which you will get: https://lfodesign.com/hdri/

This is only exclusive to our Kickstarter Supporters, as a big thank you for helping us to reach our goal.

 * The amount of chapters and materials you will receive depends on the pledge. Please refer to the pledge rewards list for more details.

Who should take this course?

This course is carefully designed for any artist, at any level, from Beginners to Intermediate-level. It's structured to show you every aspect of rendering Redshift 3D with Cinema 4D from the fundamentals to advance techniques. No prior knowledge of Redshift is required but a basic knowledge of Cinema 4D (3DS Max, Houdini, Maya or Blender) is necessary.



What will I learn?

We will go step by step through all Redshift 3D features to help you better understand how you can apply it on your own production.

Our idea is to show u how you can easily control all nodes and their parameters, instead of overloading you with many technicalities and boring information which you don’t actually need to know.

In addition, we will show you more advanced techniques such as how to build new textures, make materials with details without textures or without UV, full procedural materials, masks for material blend from multiple nodes and many more.

 The Course consists of 4 main parts split into 80 online chapters:

1, Parameters: We will explain all important redshift objects, color space, lights, environment, volume/vdb, shaders and nodes.

2, Breakdown: We explain step by step and impart our techniques used on professional 3D models.

3, Practice: You will practice the techniques and how to correctly use node parameters on the free 3D models.

4, Pipeline: We will explain how to correctly use Megascans, Substance, X-particles, VDB from Houdini, FD turbulence and Hot 4D with Redshift.

If you would like to know more about the full course details and list of chapters, please refer to the links below for more info.

Important info about 3D models!

Please note that we are not redistributing any of the Turbosquid models, and the purchased models are not included. We would like to keep the price of our course the lowest possible for our students.

“You DO NOT NEED to buy any 3D models to study our course!“
 Turbosquid 3D models which we purchased are just for theory explanation.
When we are showing step by step techniques, we are using only FREE 3D models.

Check out the free chapter to better understand how our course works.

Of course, if you will be interested to buy the paid models for your own use, you could do so as well ;)
     We will be providing a PDF document stating all the models used in the course together with all the links and details. It will be much easier for you to reference from there.

We would truly appreciate you helping us get the word out! Sharing this Kickstarter on social media will let your friends know about this project and help increase pledges to reach our funding goal and unlock additional stretch goals! 



What happens if the project is not successfully funded?

Fret not! We will still release the full online 3D course (i.e. worth 80 chapters) by end of May 2019, but without 10 additional intermediate chapters and without all interesting Kickstarter campaign discounts. 



Important Info to Note:

The mentor's role is to provide students with useful feedback/comments which will help you to improve on your renders, skills and showreel. Communication channel used will be announced after kickstarter campaign.

Kindly note that all pre-recorded video tutorial and material library are for personal use only and belong to LFO Design. The course materials cannot be distributed or used in other courses or classes without LFO Design’s consent. 

Please also note that all Turbosquid models which we purchased are for teaching and promotional purposes. We are not redistributing any of the Turbosquid models, and the course does not include purchased models. We would like to keep the price of our course lowest possible for our students. Of course, if you will have interest to purchase those models, we will provide links for every single model.

However, for learning purposes or practice chapters, you do not need any paid models!

All assets, videos, files and any other materials provided in this course are copyrighted by LFO Design and it cannot be used without the express authorisation from LFO Design.

Thank you for you kind support and we look forward to having you on our course!

Risks and challenges

The risks for this project are relatively low.

LFO Design is highly committed in making sure that communication and transparency will be at the heart of this campaign. We will provide regular updates on the development of this course.

Currently, we are in amidst of recording the 80 course chapters .

If everything goes according to plan, we can expect the course to be ready around April 2019.The biggest challenge will be to complete the course recording in its entirety and to make sure that it is the most compelling, engaging, and informative as it can possibly be.

The other big challenge will be to get the additional 10 Intermediate bonus Chapters (which will be available in May 2019) done in a timely manner while still maintaining the highest level of quality possible. We want to deliver the 10 bonus chapters to you as soon as we can, but it may, however, take the entire time allotted in each reward tier to do so.

Please note that our mentors are not academic teachers. They are a group of highly-skilled professionals working in the VFX industry and they will impart you techniques and skills based on their past VFX production experiences.

Nevertheless, we believe that the risks for this project are low.
