Cinema 4D and Midi

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

What possibilities and limitations are there for working with Midi (be it Midi files or even live Midi input) in C4D? Is it possible to work with Midi files in C4D like it is with Sound files? This would be absolutely perfect for my work.

Any advice or insight on these issues, and Midi in C4D generally, would be greatly appreciated.

 

Best regards,
António

Hi Antonio, my efforts with Midi  in the past had been focused on the input of commands through midi controllers (physical sliders and knobs)

 

I have yet to find a perfect solution for my controllers and C4D, but so far this has been my best bet:

It's not perfect mind you, it needs some clever mapping, but it will get you further than most other solutions

Boas, @António Florença :-)

...

Which is your ideia? Using music as source for graphic design? Or Using midi devices for controling CINEMA? 

...

As I think you mean the first one: I don't know... but I found this in Youtube... maybe there is hope. :-)

I've researching about it... in the C4DCafe´s grocery store :-) and I found that @3DKiwi did some work with MIDI files some years ago... Sorry to bother you, 3D Kiwi, but maybe you can help.

...

Thanks.

  • Thank you all for the input, the feedback and the tools you proposed, they're great. It helped a lot.

     

    Olá João, I have rather broad, long-term (and quite possibly utopian, unmatchable) goals and more realistic short-term ones. As I'm only getting into this now, I'm trying to see how far I can go in representing Music in C4D, meaning musical information from both midi and sound sources, in a precise and wholesome form.

     

    All the best,

    António

    My interest in C4D and Midi is for Midi driving animation. I did a review of the Animidi plugin here:
