Join Maxon Trainers Elly Wade, Lionel Vicidomini and Dustin Valkema as they dive into some exciting techniques using Redshift. Throughout this four-part series the team will breakdown interesting new ways to increase your Redshift rendering skills. From rendering particles and volumes, to building complex layered materials and even jumping into sub-surface scattering!

Creating and rendering fire, smoke or water is a difficult and challenging task. In this session Master Trainer Lionel Vicidomini will show you how to render volumes with Redshift, using Cinema 4D’s in-built tools as well as using the X-Particles plug-in from INSYDIUM.
