or i'm doing everything wrong with the integration of vue 9 xstream or there is a BIG difference in render quality between the standalone vue and the proxy in C4D.

In vue (standalone) the renders are high-end quality, in C4D if you render a vue integrated scene it looks like sh**. (and the rendertimes are way off).

I tried different things to make it look half decent in C4D (changing lights,using C4D lights ...etc ) but to no avail.

i wonder nobody speaks about this...?

cheers.

It's not my case with render times... Try disabling "linear workflow" (CTRL+D), and you should get the same image as in Vue.

Thanks Zmotion,

That is indeed a whole lot better!

:)

excuse my ingnorance!

It seems that we have to take a lot of parameters and 'way of work' into account in order to get a good vue scene renders in C4D.

Would be interesting to hear some experienced (ab)users giving us some guidlines and tips...(as this is poorly documented on the net)

thanks,

cheers

The latest version of Terragen might be an alternative.

Hallo,

Made a test with a vue background scene in C4D without the linear workflow on.

Looks quite nice i think (dont mind the front terrain, a little experiment that turned out bad :p)

The terrain, sky and trees look very good i think, without mucht lightning and no materials on the C4D objects (house).

BUT, it took almost 3 hours to render on medium C4D render quality. (1200x675px size 72 p/inch res.)

Thats much.

I have a Q6600 Qaudcore @ 2.4 Gig 4Gig DDR2 RAM and 1G DDR3 Videocard.

I guess it can go faster and my render parameters are not qorrect ( i'm quite new to C4D)

This supposed to be a movie (300frames) its gonna take 2 months to render when its finished :(

any advice in speeding things up without too much loss of quality would be great.

Thanks.

Can someone elaborate on linear workflow (command D on a mac? Just brings up project settings here) And I can't find it in the C4d help. Is this R12 only? ha! Anyway, we just upgraded from Vue 8.5 to 9 but have yet to upgrade c4d (that's next).

But on topic, I find Vue 9 in c4d 11.5 just Ok. Less crashes then in Vue 8.5, but performance is an issue for us (new mbps, no new mac pro just yet). It works great for what we got it for (game storyboarding in conjunction with Poser - used to create atmospheres & simple terrains), but I am thinking we could have done the same with a cheaper tool...dunno.

Now I would like to do something a bit more advanced, but wondering if anything more can be done on limited hardware in OSX.

Cheers,

Jigs

  • Hi

    yes, linear workflow is a topic in R12. It is on by default, but can be turned off simply.

    The rendering speed of Vue Xstream in C4D is largely depending on the antialiasing settings of C4D, so take care of that for faster rendering, on the other hand, Vue has never

    been very fast anyway.
