While you'll still be able to get resources here about CINEMA 4D and BODYPAINT 3D, you can find new tutorial online from MAXON's newly launched portal called CINEVERSITY.  With a subscription based membership, the new site offers tons of materials for MAXON users.

If you've taken a look at MACANIMATIONPRO, or CREATIVEMAC.COM, you know that DigitalMediaNet has a bunch of 3D tutorials, forums, free projects and helpful resources that will aid you while learning the new software.  You've probably also seen the site that hosts this article and others like it.  MAXON.DIGITALMEDIANET.COM is a site dedicated to articles about MAXON product, tutorials, user stories and project stories.

For a small fee, MAXON has decided to offer users access to even more tutorials created by artists like DigitalMediaNet's own ROB GARROTT.  You can find Rob in the DMN-CINEMA 4D forum, and lurking in the PLUGIN PAVILION forum as well.  Rob brings broadcast insight to CINEVERSITY and DMN FORUMS for everyone, whether they're new users or familiar with the software and want to become even more proficient with it.

For $295 as an initiation fee, and $95/year as a maintenance fee, you will get all-you-can-eat tutorials from the top MAXON users in the world, including many who have helped to create the application itself.

Get ready to learn, Cineversity is going to have everything you want to know about.  If you don't see it on the multiple lists of video tutorials that are already streaming, you can request a private tutorial.

Each video tutorial is explained in an overview, gives you materials needed to complete the lesson (if any), and tells you how long the review will take.  Additionally, you'll be able to rate the tutorial and even comment about it in the notes.

While you may think that the near-$300 fee, you should consider the weeks and months of training that will be available to you as a member; and that many schools cost much more, and private training is usually twice as much for a two-day introductory overview.

If you're not the type of person who likes to learn on-line, and prefer to learn at a school instead, Cineversity will point you to an academic facility in an area you choose.

Of course, you're always welcome to ask Rob questions for free in the DMN Forum, or if you prefer to chat at the Cineversity, the forum account is free there as well.
