Cinema 4D Training graphic

     Maxon Cinema 4D Icon   Cinema 4D Introduction


We cover all the fundamental concepts of 3D – our training is designed to make sure you have all the skills, and know when and how to use the right tools for the job. We have an easy to follow logical structure to our Cinema 4D training that ensures there are no gaps in your fundamental knowledge (the risk of self-education) and we make sure that finish the training with what you need to know actually put into play on simple exercises that cement your learning.

You’ll learn it, you’ll do it. Then you will know it and remember it. We want you to succeed.

You’ll be in a small class where asking questions is actively encouraged, and you won’t have to squint at a screen in a giant conference centre. Our classes are deliberately kept small to encourage interaction between the students and the trainer, so we can make sure everyone is up to speed and not getting left behind.

You will learn by actually getting hands on with Cinema 4D, and walking away with real results, not to mention real usable skills. Theory is great, but we strongly believe you learn best by doing. Bring Your Own Laptop in Sydney is going to guide you as you quickly learn how to get up and running, and then put your basics into practice by actually modelling, animating, lighting and rendering objects and scenes.


This Cinema 4D training is for people who have never used the program before. You don't need any previous design/video or 3D experience either.


BYOL run customised in-house training sessions only. The duration is typically 1-2 days but we will work with you to find the most appropriate timing.




Per day for 1-9 students. +GST

Cinema 4D: One powerful tool that’s accessible to beginners, yet powerful enough for the most professional results – all inside one program. Now all you need is the best training in Sydney to unleash your creativity!

Maxon’s Cinema 4D is diverse enough to be used for film & TV, animation, engineering, science, medicine, design and illustration. If you need to create or visualise something, it’s comprehensive enough that you just need one program from your first sketches to the final render. Yet they built it with the idea that anyone could learn to use their tools, and get a great result. It even integrates with Adobe After Effects (and the Adobe CC suite) to power your video production, or to add the finishing touches.

Cinema 4D is purpose built to make it easy to learn and powerful enough that it’s all you need to create and finish your vision. Whatever that might be.

All you need is the best training to launch into the unlimited potential of 3D content creation, so that you’re spending your time creating, not searching the manual for every other task. If you are based in Sydney, Australia (home to some of the world’s best animators and 3D artists) then Bring Your Own Laptop has the right Maxon Cinema 4D training to propel your craft.

Maxon calls it ‘3D for the real world’ which is perfect because Bring Your Own Laptop firmly believe in training for the real world. Not textbook jargon or academic outcomes. Get in there and create something!


Cinema 4D is so powerful, a common user comment is that ‘I didn’t know it could do that!’ You need training that’s as comprehensive as it is comprehensible. Learning a program so vast can feel more than a little intimidating, but Bring Your Own Laptop are masters of taking total beginners through the steps so they not only understand all the tools available to them, you finish with real hands on skills so you can actually use the software. Don’t just sit there trying to keep up with YouTube videos that assume you know things (chances are you definitely don’t). Get training that works at your pace with a real instructor to guide you step by step. And we promise not to be boring.

Cinema 4D has some amazing powers, like cloth and hair simulation, stereoscopic rendering and dynamics behaviour. But you have to start somewhere, and BYOL’s Sydney training course doesn’t assume you know anything. We start right at the very beginning so you have a solid foundation to build on as you come to know how to use all the resources available.

It’s ok if you don’t know a NURB from a spline. It doesn’t even matter if you have absolutory no experience. All you need is your laptop (with a copy of Cinema 4D which you can get a free trial of at https://www.maxon.net/en/products/demo-version/download-form.html). If you don’t have a laptop we can lend you one. Book yourself in, and come to our great training facility in Sydney. You’ll be joined by a handful of people just as motivated as you to learn and master Cinema 4D and all 3D training has to offer.

Our training is designed to get you going with enough knowledge that you will have the confidence to start producing your own content. We know that practice makes perfect, and that you will come up with questions as you go. We’ve got you covered. You get your instructor’s direct email and you can ask any question for a whole year after your course. We give you customised notes that perfectly accompany the course to help you remember what you’ve learned. And we take it a whole step further: you can redo your course again within 1 year of your training. We know everyone learns at their own pace, and we do everything possible to make sure you get a brilliant result, and the skills to realise your 3D dreams.

If you need to create something with Maxon’s Cinema 4D, for any application, Bring Your Own Laptop’s Sydney training is going to be the best start you can get. Call or email us today and find out how we can get you from zero knowledge to creating 3D animation without dying of boredom or struggling to keep up in a roomful of ‘experts.’
