I am looking to expand my portfolio and I am looking to dive into the 3d world…

I would love to get tips on using 3D software to make mockups like iPad devices, iPhones, 3d picture frames, 3d backgrounds etc. etc.

What software do you use to create these mockups and is there any tutorial to give me a decent start in creating such stuff?


Thanks for your time and help :):)

C4D is works on both platform. 3D is a very complex world. Have different “departments” and each needs time to understand, learn and practice. But it worth the time indeed. Good luck!

+10 for C4D . You wont regret it. I’ve been tinkering with 3D software for a while, C4D is the way to go, all the others are highly complex, and way more expensive.

Beside the more expensive 3D programs there are also free ones
examples:
Blender (Windows, Linux, Mac)

DAZ Hexagon (Windows, Mac)

Cinema 4d is what I shall try, Maya and 3d Max seem too advanced and complicated for a newbie.

Hi ShermanJackson, if you ever decide to try Blender 3D (completely free) then i would recommend checking this site out. The tutorials here are a bit more complex, but once you get the hang of basic 3d they are very useful. Even if you decide on a different program you might give it a shot.

I personally got used to Blender (its a bit awkward at the beginning). But once you get through the hard beginnings it it works pretty well.

PS: Like above, if you need any true beginner tutorials for Blender then just type “Blender Basics” or something like that into YouTube or google. There are many resources on that.

PS2 : http://cgcookie.com/blender/get-started-with-blender/ Also has a lot of beginner tutorials. Great resource.

Hey SJ,

Since you need it for static image generation it would be better to try something not animation oriented like max or maya (since the additional parameters might drive you crazy)!!! I personally use Rhino 3d in conjuction with vray of course (a third party plugin for rendering. In most cases you will need that or something similar). If you decide to jump on this platform and need help, don’t hesitate to contact me! I would be glad to help you out!!!!
