Simple UFO Tutorial by e-s-d Simple UFO Tutorial by e-s-d
Nothing fancy, but it could help someone, somewhere, somehow.

This tutorial is written for Cinema 4D, but could easily be adapted for any other 3D app out there.

Yeah, you say this is a tutorial that new people to modelling to follow, yet you neglect to explain the basic stuff. I mean, I've used C4D before so I know where the spline tool is, but others might not... since C4D is nicely icon-based a little pic of that would help. The model might be basic but you assume folks know where everything is.

The Spline tool is fairly simple to find - there is obviously some assumed knowledge, including how to start the program, how to place a light, how to use object handles, etc.

While I see what you're saying, if they can't work out which is the spline button, they're going to have more problems than following this tutorial!

Cheers for the comment though :)

What camera view are you using because when i tried it it completely messed up when i added the lathe nurbs :( please respond as i really need this for a project im working on

"Right". But if you've created it in another, no worries, just use the Object Axis tool on the spline while it's inside the lathe object and rotate it round until it's correct :)

Well, something happens, but like you see at the screenshot, all copies appear at one point... Instead of in a circle.

Sorry, I still don't get it. Maybe because my English is bad xD. :$

try it on Linear with the per-step rotations, see if that does it.
