Cinema 4D: Understanding Layers and how to use them
Understanding Layers in Cinema 4D will save you time and nerves.
In this tutorial I’ll be covering one of the most overlooked features for organization and viewport speed optimization in Cinema 4D…LAYERS! If you’ve never worked with them before, you will do yourself a disservice to not watch this and learn how much it can improve your workflow! I’ll go over the basics of layers, how to add objects to layers, and then break down all of the aspects of each layer and how you can use it to your advantage and optimize your viewport speed to the fullest!
I was once someone who was ignorant of layers and never used them…man am I glad I learned about them! Without Layers, some of my projects would be unworkable in Cinema 4D’s bogged down viewport. – eyedesyn
