Dave Bergin

Hey it’s Dave from CG Shortcuts,

I’m a freelance 3D and Motion Graphics Artist based in London where I’ve been working and teaching in the industry for over 10 years.

I hope to share some of the tips and tricks I’ve picked up over the years while working with some pretty big clients in Europe, Australia and the USA .

Hopefully I can help you through all the boring technical stuff so you can concentrate on what really matters… lens flares!…(kidding)… the creative stuff!

Let’s make better digital art!

Cinema 4D - Daily Render Scifi Scene with Octane Render

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐As someone who recently switched to C4D and Octane, this course was perfect for my needs. It covered a lot of ground including importing Daz models, basic modeling and deformations, creating complex materials, Octane fog, rendering particle simulations, and final compositing. The instructor did an excellent job of showing the illustration process from beginning to end. Highly recommended!

Cinema 4D - Daily Render Scifi Scene with Octane Render

Amazing course, exceptional idea of creating daily renders and one which I'm planning to start as soon as possible. It's very obvious that Dave is very knowledgeable, and is very passionate about 3d and Cinema. There are many useful tips (such as where to find assets, both paid and free), so all in all an amazing course, definitely worth watching!
