More Course Information

Maxon wrote Cinema 4D to be a complete solution from designing your character or object, to adding motion to final output. We want you to get the most out of Cinema 4D with training that’s as smooth to learn through as Cinema 4D is to operate with.

The training is hands on – no long winded lectures, and no trying to keep up with a 12 year old on YouTube. You will be learning what all the tools are, the basic workflow and the workspace. All under the watchful eye of your instructor who loves this stuff as much as you do. We make sure everyone is achieving the goals as we go – no one gets left behind. And because it’s interactive, you have real live people to talk to as you go. You get the help you need when you need it. Without searching the 400 page manual.

Everyone who does our Cinema 4D course gets a printed manual – it’s ours, and it was written to perfectly match our training. Long after you have gone home, you’ll have a handy reference to remind you exactly what you learned.

Of course, the more you dive into what you learn in BYOL’s Cinema 4D training, the more questions you‘ll have, because now you know what to ask! We’ve got you covered with a year of email support from your instructor – just ask any Cinema 4D question and you’ll get help.

And if you really feel like you didn’t fully grasp the concepts, we offer you the chance to do the Cinema 4D training again. For free. Yes, you can retake the course up to one year from your first course date.

We can offer this because our Cinema 4D training is simple in its uncomplicated presentation (and your execution) of the fundamental aspects of Cinema 4D. Our live and in person learning experience makes sure that you know what you are doing, because we are all doing it together, and there’s a real person to check your work, answer questions and solve problems when it’s not quite there yet.

Because we want you to be up and running with real world skills, and doing it with the same tools and techniques as the pros, we cover all the parts of Cinema 4D you will use every day. We deal with the menus, the tool and command palettes and how to manage project settings and preferences.

The training gets you comfortable with the viewport, content browser and the various object managers. Don’t let it sound confusing, we are actual experts at demystifying this stuff and giving you a real world context on how and why to use these features.

3D design and animation relies heavily on how the object is viewed, it’s called the ‘camera’ and the course will teach you what it is, and how to make the most of it. We’ll cover camera basics, how to move the object and the camera too. And then we’ll show you how to render the results so that you will finish the course with things you can actually show your friends or boss. Snap. That’s the sound of you actually being able to deliver, and it’s a great feeling we’ve built into our Cinema 4D training, because at Bring Your Own Laptop we don’t just do theory, we do real work with real results. We know you’ll enjoy that, and after hundreds of courses and thousands of students, we gotten good at making you good.

A fundamental part of 3D design is working with models and textures. These are the building blocks that come together to make an object or a character. It’s hands on, so you’ll actually get to make things. Then you get to light it (lighting another fundamental skill) and, of course, add motion.

Even if you decide to try other 3D applications, what you learn in Bring Your Own Laptop’s Cinema 4D training will give a sufficient grounding in the essentials of 3D and motion graphics that you’ll still be using what you learned regardless of what software you use in the future.

Our training is led by people who are into what they teach. We love this stuff, and we’re keeping up with the latest trends, extras and techniques. We can answer your questions, and your instructors learned this stuff on the coal face – doing it in the real world. We love academia, but we put our practical foot forward first when it comes to creating the best training, and running enjoyable and productive courses.

You can bring your own laptop, or if you don’t have one, borrow one of ours. If you bring yours, please have the latest version of Cinema 4D installed. You can get a free demo version at That’s all you need. Again, no prior knowledge necessary.

Oh, and our swanky Auckland facility has some seriously good food and coffee in the neighbourhood just to make sure you get what you need to keep you going.

So now it’s up to you to give us a call or email and book in for the next Maxon Cinema 4D training course. It’s awesome so that one day you will be awesome. We take you from zero to hero and give you a firm foundation to understanding and mastering Cinema 4D, and the limitless world of 3D design and animation. Make the best choice for your training and call Bring Your Own Laptop now.
