Creating a bent pipe object using a plane and the Path Sweep tool.

Skill Level: Beginner / Views: 297 / System Requirements: Carrara 6

This tutorial shows one method that could be used to create a bent pipe object using the Path Sweep tool in the Vertex Modeller. The Spline modeller can also accomplish this task but I decided to use this method to illustrate how smoothing can be applied to square object to create a cylinder.

Quick adjustable tree mask

Skill Level: Beginner / Views: 243 / System Requirements: Carrara 6

Using the replicator you can create scenes where objects cover the whole area of the visible terrain map. Using shaders you can control where you want these objects to appear. What this video illustrates is how to place objects/trees only at certain heights either from a certain level upwards or from a certain level downwards. You can also adjust this level later on by tweaking one or two parameters.

Creating a small Cube Solar system using Target Helper Objects

Skill Level: Beginner / Views: 201 / System Requirements: Carrara 6

Ever wanted to build a small solar system but you could not get the planets and moons to orbit the way they should? This tutorial shows you how to do this using Target Helper Objects and a few Cubes.

Making objects stick to the Ocean waves

Skill Level: Beginner / Views: 388 / System Requirements: Carrara 6

Using Carrara's ocean primitive and the replicator you can create believable water scenes where objects follow the amplitude of the waves. It is still a far cry from making the objects drift horizontally but it is a start.

How to apply multiple Spin Modifiers to an Object

Skill Level: Beginner / Views: 127 / System Requirements: Carrara 6

Carrara 6 does not allow you to apply more than one working Spin Modifier. You can add multiple Spin Modifiers but only the top one would work. This tutorial is a workaround showing you how you could create objects spinning around a center hot point and around it's own X-,Y- and Z-Axis. The end result is an orbiting spinning cube that will run as a seamless animation if you decide to render it and use as a continuously looping graphic for a website for example.

Using Object Groups to build a Small Cube Solar system

Skill Level: Beginner / Views: 94 / System Requirements: Carrara 6

Ever wanted to build a small solar system but you could not get the planets and moons to orbit the way they should? This tutorial shows you how to do this using Target Helper Objects and a few Cubes. (This idea is a variation of another tutorial about the same thing but was inspired by Wayne K, Guam USA)
