    Meltinglight ~4Gb tutorial zip archive for old c4d versions R8-10
    Hi
     
    Meltinglight website was shut down and copyright of
    files are now public domain. I received files on a DVD-Rom
    from Chris Hollins.
     

     
    Check out for old Cinema 4d version archive of c4d tutorials.
    Many tutorials will work for new release workflow as well.

    with nulls only. no joints needed

  11. ahven added a post in a topic rigging a folding cube   

    the left cube at the top should rotate all the way to meet the bottom. FK allows it only to
    rotateunder 90 degrees. If it rotates more then it flips over with a typical a gimpal error. How to solve this?

  12. ahven added a post in a topic rigging a folding cube   

    here is the first part. had a lot of fun.
    There is a youtube hobby tutorial of the
    real one that helped with the basic idea.
    So basically model 4 separate cubes then
    move them apart and model a polygon
    strip for joints "hinge" in the middle.

    Thanks Kiwi. That sounds the same I was sketching. The solution is to build a mechanical rig with joints with nulls for 8 cubes+ perhaps xpresso sliders to animate. The axis is also facing differently on each hinge but there was an illustration and I have a photocube model as a reference. So there will be
    some texturing too for the 3d one:-)

    rigging a folding cube
    Hi
     
    I am making a folding cube animation and I was thinking
    to use hinges but it´s too complex for simple rig.
    It needs 8 hinges.
    Any ideas how to rig this in Cinema 4D?
