Seamilar is a plugin for Cinema 4D R16, R17, R18, R19 available for Windows and MacOS, which allows to easily unwrap and edit UVs. Included in the plugin is a specific UV View window allowing the visualization and editing of color-coded UV islands.   It contains a tool to create seams, which can be used in the 3D view port as well as in the dedicated UV View window. Next to this, the native Cinema 4D selection tools for edges can also be used to create seams. Basic move, rotate

SDS Excercise 07 (Time Lapse Version)

SDS Excercise 07 (Time Lapse Version)

In SDS excercise number 7 we continue practicing modelling with subdivision surfaces. Once again I am using an object from a free kitbash library as a reference. This is a fairly quick and simple one. Currently there only is this 4-minute time lapse version of the tutorial.    If you want to give it a shot, you can download a reference image for modelling here:    https://www.dropbox.com/s/9y2kfwef6t0zv4g/SDS Excer 007 ref image.png?dl=0   I rendered the reference i

Animation tutorial

Happy animation day! I originally made a short video about quaternion rotations, but then it got a little out of hand and the next thing you know, bam!, you've got an entire 5 hour animation course recorded. So, here we go with the free video, quaternion rotations, a simple harmless little checkbox, but one which when explained can save your sanity. You know how sometimes objects wobble around badly when you rotate them? well yeah, it fixes that, have a watch here.

SDS Excercise 06 (Full tutorial)

Subdivision Surface Excercise 06: One more sphere...   In this 65-minute tutorial we'll have a look at sub-d modelling one more spherical object. This sphere has four big holes evenly distributed across its surface, plus a couple of smaller ones to make the object look more interesting.   The goal, as usual, is to create clean geometry without any triangles and N-gons.    In the video I'm using the "Even Distribution" script, which is part of the HB Modelling Bundle

Unity: Progressive Lightmapper

In this Unity video tutorial we take a look at the Progressive Lightmapper. We look at its settings and what they do and go through the steps necessary to achieve a clean lightmap bake. We also look at lighting, Reflections, and how we can give dynamic objects secondary lighting. We also look at settings which can solve lightmap errors and Post Effects using the Post Processing Stack.   Digitalmeat.ukIf you would like to support Digital Meat, or follow me on social media, see
