Free Cinema 4D files from my Sketch & Toon animation.

Free Cinema 4D tree and bench

You might have seen my mini-animation where I was trying out Sketch & Toon in Cinema 4D. If you haven”t you can see it below:

I thought of sharing the elements for free so I just uploaded them on Turbosquid. You’ll be able to find the animated low poly tree and bench. It’s not very advanced stuff but I think some of these might be helpful for background purposes or if you want to get a unique paper look or cardboard look. They are all still customizable so go ahead and tweak them if you want.

Just like my other stuff, this is completely free, as long as you don’t sell it I’m fine with you using it for any project, paid or not. Have fun!

Free pictures can be very useful to use in your demos or if you wanna show off a template you’re selling. While free vectors can just be time savers in general as you can import them into After Effects easily and use them as masks and whatnot. Here is the list:

Vecteezy

Vecteezy has a huge library of free vector art, vector graphics, illustrator brushes, vector wallpaper backgrounds, silhouettes, etc. Very easy to navigate, just don’t get caught in clicking on an advertising.

Where To Find Free Stuff #2: Royalty-Free Music

We continue our series of Free Stuff with Music. Whether you’re doing a showreel, an ad or a promotional video, using music that isn’t royalty-free can be dangerous.  A good royalty-free song is really hard to find so here is a list of websites where you can find completely free music to use in your compositions and projects that are also royalty-free. I hope that with this list you’ll find what you are looking for:

Vimeo Music Store
