Thank you for the great reply! I love the kitchen, that is beautiful. I like Maxwell a lot, but I only have the learning edition. The speed is what is killing it for me, but the results are nice. Video is a disaster with Maxwell which is why I went with Octane. The fact that it supports OpenCL is very intriguing. Octane is promising openCL, but I have not seen this yet. I have two Mac Pros, one old one with Nvidia, and a new 6 core with D700. Again, thank you. You are very talented.
For games, yes, I am sure there will be some significant difference, but for Cinema, not so sure. Cinema VP is slow so I would like to hear also from pro hardware members, what they had to say about this.
P.S.- and I am a gamer too, so what games do you play? :?
I'm just wondering if there is a better way to do what I did this week. I had to create a cardboard box in C4D and apply a texture the client gave me (in pdf format). I didn't know how to wrap the texture around the box correctly and I run into some difficulties.
So at first (first attempt) I did the box, and I used some bend deformers to be able to open and close it. All good but at this point I didn't know how to apply the texture correctly. I thought I had to make several polygon selections and apply to each one a portion of it. It seemed very hard to place all the bits in the right spot. So I gave up.
I started again (second attempt), built the box as if it were unfolded, stuck the texture on it and then folded it again using joints like if it were a character. It took me some time but I get what I wanted. (see picture) I'm quite sure this wasn't the fastest way to do it though.
Could I have applied the texture to the first box instead of restart from scratch again? How?
