You can now do Cafe monthly support for only 5€.  As a monthly supporter you receive:

 

  • SUPPORT BENEFITS
    • Supporter badge
    • Warm and fuzzy feeling of helping the community
    • Unlimited storage space
    • Unlimited video uploads
    • No Google Adsense
    • Selling products via Cafe just in few clicks
    • Animated avatar of choice
    • Create signatures in post
    • ..and much more...
  • for more information please see HERE!

 

Please consider supporting so we can continue to run the best C4D place on planet 🙂

Also, big thanks to all of our members who helps and keeps this community alive.

 

Special thanks to those who really invest their time to help around, thanks guys! :999:

    Looking really good. I can't figure out how to view gallery images by albums / categories. For example say I wanted to view cafe challenge images how would I do that?

    Its coming soon. Its really hard to decide on the best system, especially if we want only quality images to be shown. I need to find some solutions so that Gallery shows only Art, but not imges like wireframe, that should be only in peoples personal spaces or Topics. Until challenges are up, we will sort this out.

    Ok, so far I cannot promise anything, but this is something we would like to see. For example...

    1. Cinema 4D Subscribtion (one month or more)

    2. Redshift Licence

    3. XParticles Licence

    4. Cycles 4D Licence

    5. RenderFarm credits

    6. Hopefully some members would like to provide their own set of tutorials, scripts, or plugins

    and more...

    We will reach out to many people in C4D Eco system as we can to see if they are willing to participate in challenges

    .
