Maxon Cinema 4D Training

Customised Cinema 4D Training




Your personal CG training
A customised training is without any doubt the most flexible training that we offer. A training session can be spoken in English or Dutch. Also you can specify just about anything of the training; the subjects, location and timespan. 

The advantages
When planning a customised training, you can choose for a one-on-one training or a small group (max. 5 people). Whatever works best for you. This means you will receive a lot of personal attention and the opportunity to ask questions that are not directly related to the pre-defined topics. In other words, sidetracking is allowed. 

The major advantage of a customised training is the opportunity to choose your own topics of interest. This most often means that the training is condensed to only the topics that have any value to you and can be implemented in your workflow.

If choosing the topics sounds intimidating, we can look at your workflow and provide you with a training topic proposal. The last sentence can literally be broken down to a client sending us a image; “I wanna make this” and CyBear sending back a topic list; “Then you need to learn this”.

So what can we cover?
We provide training in; Character Rigging, Character Animation, 3D Printing from Cinema 4D, Xpresso, Bodypaint, Rendering, Integration with After Effects, Advanced Modeling techniques, x-particles, a variety of Plug-ins, etc etc. For more information about the possibilities, please contact me.

Training days normally cover 7 hours of training. Shorter training sessions are possible (evenings after office hours), but this strongly depends on the location of the training location because of travel expenses.

Training days do not have to be consecutive. Many trainees like to have a few days between training days so they can practice and prepare for the next training day. This also will give the participants time to run into problems and ask about them the next training day.

Training Location

Singapore Training


Customised training can be planned just about anywhere, and we really mean anywhere. CyBear has trained in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Russia, India, Singapore and the Philippines to attendants from the mentioned countries as well as France, Spain, Portugal, United States, China, Taiwan and Australia.

We know that our free video tutorials are being watched by people from all over the world, but are especially populair in South Korea (?!?).

Anyway; most of the time we provide training in the Netherlands and visit our clients at their office. If a office does not suit a lesson environment, other training locations can be provided like Groeten van Marc, just to name one.

Please keep in mind that training in a international location is better planned consecutive to keep the traveling and acomodation expenses low.

Classroom Training

3D Producer

CyBear has developed and trained the 3D Producer (3DP) education for more then 10 years now. 3DP is a education of 45 lessons, providing you with a extensive knowledge of Cinema 4D and 3D animation. 3DP will give you a solid foundation for working with not only Cinema 4D, but also other 3D applications. Currently 3D Producer is trained by Emile de Lat, but I swoop in often to replace him for certain lessons.

The main topics are: modeling, 3D printing, texture mapping, lighting, animation, 3D Workflow, simulation, compositing, rendering and xPresso.

Students who graduate 3DP will receive the Maxon Certified Advanced Training certificate from Maxon and become a Maxon Certified Artist.

3D Producer is hosted bij College of MultiMedia and runs every half year on Tuesday and Thursday evening. More information on this eduction and enrolment can be found on

C4D Basics

Oopen Day CMMC4D Basics is a Cinema 4D training aimed at people who are looking for a fast way to start with Cinema 4D. It is not as thorough as the 3D producer education and more focussed on the “how” then the “why”.
