Funny feeling there is a simple answer!

Hello,

 

Recently started using C4D during some down time at work, we have a copy that our old motion graphics guy used to use however he has now left so I am having to teach myself!

 

I have been following a few tutorials and I decided I would try and create something from scratch so I came up with a quick idea of object dropping between conveyor belts, however I wanted the objects to be soft bodies, and collide with the conveyor belts, which is where I have run into problems. Basically I have a slice of bread made up of many points and when I add a soft body tag it just goes haywire, with my lack of experience it seems to me that the tag is affecting all the points in the model, as opposed to the model as a whole (this might not be the case) does anyone have any ideas what I am doing wrong? I feel like it might be a really simple answer but I cant for the life of me figure it out!

 

Picture attached to show what is happening

Licenses follow the person I'm afraid, so you are not licensed to use this software.

 

That model is almost totally unsuitable for use with soft bodies because it has been made with a spline in an extrude, which has created appalling topology, as doing that does.

 

Instead, you need to model this with low density quads using regular polygon modelling techniques.

  • Does the license follow the user or the company who purchased it? If so I will have to have a look into re-licensing!

     

    And brilliant, not the super simple answer I was looking for  :lol: but definitely something I can do!

     Presumably, employees at your firm are not required to buy their own software so it belongs to the company, which means you're fine.

    Ah yes if the company bought it no worries at all :) I was thinking your guy brought it with him for some reason...
