Today in class I refreshed my memory of the basic tools used in C4D. The re-learning curve thus far has been relatively simple to get over. I also learned how to utilize the joint tool. I has some difficulty with it on the first run through, but got that hang of it with subsequent tries. Manipulating the joints inside the cylinder was rather easy to do once all the joints were bound. Towards the end of class I began to plan out my cylinder animation for the first assignment.
