Whatever happened to that Daniel Danielsson guy? Didn’t he make tutorials or something back in the day?

Here’s one on how to create a quick ripple effect in Cinema 4D that you can add to just about anything. It’s particularly effective at making your Statues of David extra AESTHETIC:
03:56 – Introducing Dave
04:48 – Adding ripples with the Formula Deformer
05:55 – Adding ripples with a Plain Effector
06:38 – Activating Deformation on the MoGraph effector.
07:07 – Making Dave buffer & grumpier
07:29 – Controlling the ripples with the falloff.
08:01 – Making it actually ripple
08:32 – Animating the ripples
10:53 – Making the ripples go all over David’s body
12:09 – Making the ripples loop perfectly
12:50 – Animating using the Spline Animation Speed

Please give me all your Q’s in the Qomments!

About a year ago or so i have sworn to myself i will buy your cource if you are teaching any, even if i will have to sell my kidneys. And here we go… Daniel is making a cource. xD
few questions i have , if you please.
– Daniel, are you working in broadcast, or is that only freelance jobs you are making for clients?
– Why did you choose Arnold for rendering?
– For how many years are you in motion design?
– Were you always in mo- design, or maybe you have suddenly changed your life direction and came into motion?
– since i have been waiting for cource – maybe you could revial the secret of who is your cource for : noobs or more experienced designers?
ps: thank you !
pps: somehow the way you are explaining is the most exeptable way for me, even more exeptable than on my native languages.

I’m creating tutorials as well, so I’m interested in your style of narration. Do you have any good tips for creating a good voice-over? Do you record the voice-over at the same moment of your screen recording, or after the screen recording in post?

Have you used Octane before? if so, would you make a tutorial with it?
