Using Octane for C4D to make a natural scenes

As the leading Cinema 4D render farm in the CG industry, Fox Renderfarm will always gather some tutorial about 3D software, renderers. In this article, we will teach you how to make a natural scene in Octane for C4D. In terms of scenes, there are many types, like sci-fi scenes, realistic natural scenes, cartoon scenes, and so on. Different scenarios have different ways of creating them.

We will use one of the production methods to explain the process and ideas of the creation of realistic natural scenes.

Realistic natural scene reference

Scene Construction

Taking the reference picture as an example, the scene ground is mainly divided into two materials, the middle is the road, and the two sides are the muddy mountains.

According to the reference picture, the middle ground is a long road, so first create a ground in the C4D according to the reference picture, then use an ‘Octane Daylight’ to properly adjust the angle of the light to simulate the sunset.

Firstly, creating a standard shader to make the land, in the mountains you can turn off some unwanted reflections, just use diffuse reflection, then add color, AO, Normal map, and adjust the UV mapping.

The next step is to add plants using Cinema 4D’s Forester Tree and modify the tree type in the Tree Library. Before the modification, you can look at the trees in the reference picture and modify the size, height, color of the leaves, length of the branches, etc. according to the reference trees. After modifying the parameters,

Before using cloning, you need to make several different shapes of trees. Adjust the height and shape of the tree to use as a cloning template to avoid being too repetitive in the final use.

Here we use the Octane’s Clone. First, create an ‘Octane Scatter_Tree’ group and drag the three trees you just made below the ‘Octane Scatter_Tree’. Then use ‘Octane Scatter’ to clone the tree onto the ground of the well-prepared land.

Changing the way of generated trees by Distribution to clone in the Surface.

Add a layer of Noise in the Distribution under ‘’Octane Scatter to find the appropriate Noise type. Adjust the size of the tree and the direction of rotation.

Now adjust the material of the leaf, first convert the material to the material of Octane, and then adjust. Copy a copy of Diffuse to the Transmission to increase the transparency of the leaves and look closer to the real feeling.

Then adjust the trunk to achieve the final effect.

Next, use Multiflora under Forester to select a suitable grass for adjustment.

Use Multiflora to add some other plants.

Continue to add other plants, adjust the size and position of the plants, make the grass look diverse, and adjust the plant material.

Octane For C4D Tutorial - Making Forest Scene Model Light Rendering (1)
As the leading cloud rendering service provider, Fox Renderfarm, is going to share with you a tutorial of Octane for C4D, making forest scene model light rendering as an example.This is a simple natural forest scene production, the main elements are composed of branches, butterflies, grass, mushrooms, vines and several kinds of grasses, divided into three parts including foreground, medium and background. The main production software and plugins for this small scene model lighting rendering tutorial include C4D, Forester, Levy Grower, Octane renderer. Making TerrainCreate a new terrain, turn the function off to sea level that can get the terrain. Modify the terrain to achieve a satisfactory effect, and create a surface behind the scene for background texture.!Octane For C4D Making Forest Scene Model Light Rendering Tutorial (2) Making BranchesForester's plant library is very rich, and you can choose a satisfactory tree to generate. The tree used in this scene should be a relatively dry tree, so make some adjustments on the basis of the original. Remove excess branches and twist the trunk.!Octane For C4D Making Forest Scene Model Light Rendering Tutorial (3) Adjust the Position of the Placed Tree.!Octane For C4D Making Forest Scene Model Light Rendering Tutorial (4)Firstly, we should determine the camera position, then place the model of other objects according to the camera position. It is recommended to use the Octane renderer’s camera. Now adjust the lens position in the view, in this process you need to mainly reserve the foreground and the background position.!Octane For C4D Making Forest Scene Model Light Rendering Tutorial (5)Now the interaction between the ground and the trunk is not enough, so you can use the brush to adjust some of the unevenness of the ground, so that the combination of the branches and the ground is more natural.!Octane For C4D Making Forest Scene Model Light Rendering Tutorial (6)Add a mushroom to this step. You can make a cluster first, then copy the mushrooms and then scale and place them.!Octane For C4D Making Forest Scene Model Light Rendering Tutorial (8)The butterfly directly uses an existing model to find the location directly in the camera. Now that the models that need to be prepared in the early stage are available, the rest of the elements can be created with plugins.In order to look more natural, there should be some vines placed in the distant background map, and Lvy Grower is very simple to make vines. Some vines are also added to the trunk.!Octane For C4D Making Forest Scene Model Light Rendering Tutorial (14) !Octane For C4D Making Forest Scene Model Light Rendering Tutorial (13)Don't forget to adjust the position of the plants in the lens. Remember that both the foreground and the mid-range need to be placed. Use Forester to continue adding other types of plants and adjust them while continuing to place.!Octane For C4D Making Forest Scene Model Light Rendering Tutorial (12)In the real-time selection, change the ground mode to the vertex drawing mode, and then you can draw the area that needs to grow the grass, which can be random. You can now select the Objects/Octane Scatter in the Octane renderer and add the grass to the Octane Scatter and place the terrain on the Surface of the Octane Scatter. Change the Distribution mode to Surface mode, and then map the previously drawn vertices to the Vertex Map under Octane Scatter. Now only the area that was previously drawn will grow out.Use the Octane renderer to see the effect.!Octane For C4D Making Forest Scene Model Light Rendering Tutorial (9)We need to add a random effect for the grass. Add effects to the Effectsor under the Octane Scatter and turn off the position changes in the random effects. Just select the zoom size and rotate randomly.Now the effect of the grass is ok, but some flowers are still missing. Continue to use Forester to plant some flowers for the grass.!Octane For C4D Making Forest Scene Model Light Rendering Tutorial (11)In order to enrich the level, you need to add a few shorter shrubs. The more plant species, the richer the picture looks.!Octane For C4D Making Forest Scene Model Light Rendering Tutorial (10)Now that the plant is almost finished, how to make it later, please follow the best CPU&GPU render farm to our next article — Octane For C4D Tutorial - Making Forest Scene Model Light Rendering (2)").

As the leading cloud rendering service provider, Fox Renderfarm, is going to share with you the second part of the tutorial of Octane for C4D, making forest scene model light rendering as an example.- Octane For C4D Tutorial - Making Forest Scene Model Light Rendering (1)")In the previous tutorial, in order to make the scene more natural, many kinds of plants were added to the scene. After preparing to use the Octane renderer, all textures need to be converted to Octane's texture.You can select all shaders that are not Octane, and convert all shaders to Octane shaders in Convert Matenials under Materials.!Octane For C4D Making Forest Scene Model Light Rendering Tutorial -1After converting the shader, remember to clean up the shaders before.What you need to deal with now is the texture of the ground and the texture of the dead tree. The texture of the ground is Octane GLossy Material, which adds a total of Diffuse, Specular, Bump, Normal, Displacement.!Octane For C4D Making Forest Scene Model Light Rendering Tutorial -2 Add a picture to the background and adjust it to the appropriate size and position.!Octane For C4D Making Forest Scene Model Light Rendering Tutorial -3Add the mushroom material, create a new Octane Specular Material shader, modify the Medium and Fake Shadows, change the mushroom to yellow and modify the butterfly material.!Octane For C4D Making Forest Scene Model Light Rendering Tutorial -4 !Octane For C4D Making Forest Scene Model Light Rendering Tutorial -5 Now adjust the lights. Octane's Octane Arealight is used here, and the position of the light source simulates the sun's lighting effect according to the position in the background image. First illuminate the background with a light, then use another light to illuminate the tree.!Octane For C4D Making Forest Scene Model Light Rendering Tutorial -6Remember to turn off the light display and the lights will not be rendered in the rendered view. Be sure to adjust the intensity of the light with reference to the background image. Now adjust the light while rendering. This is a step that needs to be tested continuously.The outlook is a bit dark, copying the care of the Octane Arealight supplement. !Octane For C4D Making Forest Scene Model Light Rendering Tutorial -7!Octane For C4D Making Forest Scene Model Light Rendering Tutorial -8In the process, I feel that the position of the mushroom has exposed. Now put the mushroom in a lower position to avoid exposure.!Octane For C4D Making Forest Scene Model Light Rendering Tutorial -9Modify the camera settings, Kernels changed to Pathtracing option, Max samples changed to 1000, Diffuse depth changed to 8, the rendering speed will be slower. Change the GI clamp to 3 to reduce the noise of the exposure.When Cameralmager's Response is changed to Linear, the rendering effect will be closer to reality. !Octane For C4D Making Forest Scene Model Light Rendering Tutorial -10 Now focus on the butterfly and add some depth of field.!Octane For C4D Making Forest Scene Model Light Rendering Tutorial -11 Now that the effect is nearing completion, you only need to add some light fog in the later stage. !Octane For C4D Making Forest Scene Model Light Rendering Tutorial -12 ConclusionThe above is all of the tutorial of Octane For C4D for this time.

As the leading Cinema 4D render farm in the CG industry, Fox Renderfarm will continue to show you how to use Octane for C4D to make a natural scenes.- Using Octane for C4D to Make a Natural Scenes (1)")In the previous article of production process, the forest was already done, and the part of the road was relatively simple, and the road model in the C4D preset library could be used directly.!Using Octane for C4D to make a natural scenesAfter rendering, you can see that the overall picture is already there. But there is a black color at the junction of the ground and the sky, because there is no model occlusion in the distance. Then this place needs to add some fog to block the black place.And compared with the real environment, there is still some environmental fog and depth of field, but also need to add some light and shadow, the part of the sun needs to be adjusted.If you want the current environment and the reference map to look similar, then the angle and strength of the light source need to be adjusted to add fog.!Using Octane for C4D to make a natural scenes (2)Reduce the density of fog and increase the sense of the atmosphere. After the rendering, you can see the sun through the woods.Now that the woods look a bit narrow, you can increase the length of the woods and increase the number of trees to make the forest look denser.!Using Octane for C4D to make a natural scenes (4)Using an Octane camera, with a suitable angle, you can see that the overall light and shadow effect is great. !Using Octane for C4D to make a natural scenes (6) But now there is still a problem, the tree in front of the camera is a bit dark because of the backlight. This requires adding a slightly brighter HDIR to the entire scene. Rendering again, you can see that the entire scene is lit, and the light looks very good.!Using Octane for C4D to make a natural scenes (7)It can now be seen that the reflection of the road is too strong and the color is also problematic. Then you can adjust the road material, reduce the reflection, increase the roughness, and add some dirt to the Shader's Amount layer.!Using Octane for C4D to make a natural scenes (8)Now you can see the reflections and bumps on the road. If you want to be more realistic, you can add some old textures and stains to the road.!Using Octane for C4D to make a natural scenes (9)The scene has been basically completed, you can compare the effects in the reference.!Using Octane for C4D to make a natural scenes (10)Now you can add a car and render again to see the final effect.!Using Octane for C4D to make a natural scenes (1)This workflow only explains how to make an outdoor scene.
