Diamonds are forever, Diamonds...Take her breath away, Diamonds....yeah, that'll shut her up......for a minute.

Anyway I followed the tutorial from this link here:

In my rendition, i skipped a few things he mentioned as they seembed pointless to me, anyway yeah, enjoy.

PS, Not for complete beginners as I made it pretty quick, but those of you that know the basics should understand.

Probably Google search... I was looking for a good diamond tutorial because the one I found first, didn't quite have good enough directions. So I really thank you for putting up this one! :D

Dude, This tutorial is like the holy grail

You answer questions in such an old video which bothered me for so long.

I didnt knew you can model the same way as in 3DS with the cut and remove ngons way.
And that cylinder thing with optimizing... I was certain cinema had weaknesses and I never found anything in the more recent tutorials and
you answer such huge questions just like that like X years ago.

I was just so amazed right now. Watching the first 2 minutes of a video and have 2 game changing things shown just like that after 3 years of C4D usage

Applause

Nice Tuto, great texture, you make it look real easy.

yeah, oddly enough I can't get this effect with R12 that we use at school, hell, most of the things I did in R9 and R10, i Can't do at school and it does annoy me since quite honestly, I don't like the *new better* things in the newer versions. Well hope you got it to work fine for ya. ^^

Found any other way to create such a texture?
didn't work @ R12 :X

HelP? :)

No idea, I haven't got the money to upgrade so I haven't had any real chance to experiment with the newer versions, also don't have the time to take classes for it at the moment either.

Maybe you can try asking on c4dcafe.com

Great work, I had a few months ago a request for a diamond figure, but my result didn't come out so good as yours. Nice Tuto.

I have to make a diamond engagement ring for a project. I thought I would be entirely screwed until I found this. Thank you!
