CV smart export questions

Recommended Posts

Hi.

 

Currently, our firm is doing a lot of Unity game engine work.  We have been getting around PLA using 3rd party scripts in UNITY. 

 

People have started talking about 'CV smart export' and I have a few questions.

 

1. How good is the PLA option in CV smart export? What type of things can you do in 'natively' speaking in C4D. I mean deformers, PLA and things that wouldn't normally bake very well in the default FBX exporter?  

 

2. UNITY has this a different texturing system to C4D, how does a complex material with alpha come into unity? 

 

3. Are there other tools that ciniversity can help with Unity?

 

Thanks 

 

Jools

Hi

 

Can't really help with your questions about the unity - c4d bridge, but regarding the PLA a know that are a few more options besides CV smart export.

Steady Bake and Nitro Bake are two plugins that are really good at baking stuff inside c4d, with or without deformers.

Nitro bake is a paid plugin and i never worked with it but seems powerfull, but steady bake is free and it seems to work ok.

    I use steady bake, but you need CDs fbx exporter to create a pc2 or mc format which can be used with a script in Unity. I was hoping this CV smart export would bring in those type of animations in automatically?

    In an old post from Cactus Dan i saw this

     

     

    His FBX exporter could bake into pc2 format. But i really don't know much about it.

     

    Hope it helps
