We proudly present to you Mike Winkleman, aka Beeple from, showing some of his practices on how he creates tunnel loops for Video DJ clips inside Cinema 4D. Mike starts with creating tunnel with a Sweep object and a spline path. He then attaches and animates a Camera to the spline path within the tunnel using an Align to Spline Tag, then shows us some different techniques for lighting and texturing the inside of the tunnel, as well as show us how to create some fly through elements using a MoGraph Cloner.
