  1. Yesterday
  2. Hello everyone! So my c4d student license has expired these days. I was trying to use cinema 4d lite through after effects, but every time I select to create a "new file MAXON c4d lite" it automatically opens my 4d Student version. This way the software is more complete but I'm not able to save or export, and for now the lite will do. Is there anyway that I can open the Lite version as it should be? (do I have to uninstall the student version for it to work that way?).
  3. Hello Cafe people :) I was wondering how would one go about creating Ferrofluid effect as seen here? My first idea is displacement but I can't seem to get the right look and I am unable to control the extrusions. I would appreciate any help...
  4. Not many to be honest. I would say Cinema 4D is ahead in terms of UI, UI customization, Mograph tools, Object Manager (it seems a small thing, but C4D has the best OM of all 3D apps), Artist friendliness (yeah, that's a thing) and that's about it. Meanwhile Blender 2.8 is on par with Maya. Cinema4D, not so much. As I said in the other thread, Cinema4D NEEDS plugins to do stuff that Blender does out of the box. Particles? You need X-Particles. Fire? TurbulanceFD. Fluids? Realflow. Proper UVs? Seamilar II or an external app (3D Coat, etc...). GPU Render? Octane or Redshift. Blender has all of these out of the box. Cinema4D is by far my favorite 3D app, but I'm frankly having a hard time explaining to other users (and new students) why they should learn or keep using C4D. with the current prices. With the current feature set lacking in so many fronts, a C4D subscription should be around $250 (like Maya indie) and a perpetual license around $1.000. But Adobe-guy made MAXON greedy and now I fear for their future. 😞
  5. That looks nice, I guess I could catch one of those events

    Delay movement

    Hi cafe Let's say I have a mesh which I need to move from A to B but I need to have a controlled delay in start (no keys) which I can set in frames. Additionally once one of these objects moves to position B, next object should do the same. Fiddled with mograph but I couldn't find a way. Anyone can help? thanx

  14. that's odd... messaging worked a couple of days ago... gonna try to send you one instead...
  15. I'm not sure if the message sent or not? after I press send, it refreshes and under your name it says "Everfresh cannot receive messages"
  16. Just sent you a PM with the file.
  17. Thanks for the reply, it's much appreciated. can I give you my file in a private message? I don't really want this file out in the wild.
  18. Can anyone lay out for me the areas C4D is in front of Blender 2.8? Since we discovered the monthly cost was actually much more than the advertised monthly cost, people are in the studio are saying helpful things like 'What about Blender?' and I dont know what to tell them as I havent looked at it in depth for years.
  19. yes and yes. ;) yes, you've gone the right way, and yes, seems like a priority issue. aim constraints are usually more reliable if you combine them with an upvector, but since you only constrained your elements in one axis you probably can get away without any. can you share a file? i'm always having trouble telling the right priority settings from the top of my head without a file to tinker with.
  20. I am using the physical render and when I enable Motion Vector in multipass I have a weird situation, see the image attached. Basically the light I am using is not rendered in one frame (it appears only in one frame from the animation), and the model has a blue color rendered in one frame (from the same animation). I don't have any idea why this is happening...maybe you have a clue? Another weird thing is that I have other lights in the scene but they persist more than a frame...and those are rendered when Motion Vector is enabled.
  21. Hey guys, I thought it would be easier to create a video of my issues instead of writing a long explanation.
  22. Houdini nailed it with the indie license and its cost. I hope MAXON will go the same route. But it takes a lote a time to be decent with Houdini. Like someone said here, after trying different packages I keep coming back to Cinema 4D. The ease of use is an important factor for me.
  23. Folks, hope you will reconsider this and still be around. It makes me very sad to see people who invested so much in C4D and spent so many years on Cafe helping out and being so active in community think about leaving. Maybe it would be good idea to stick around and keep the perpetual license for a bit more before making final decisions...
  24. I sold my license without knowing about MAXON's plans. For me, the cost of MSA was too high and I needed to pay for too many plugins for my needs. The upgrades didn't help me much, and I hit a wall with some of my projects. Given the new CEO of MAXON coming from Adobe, I was not surprised to see a shift to rentals. Rentals are not just Adobe's model, but most software is going that way. I sold my Modo license for the same reason. I see a better future in Houdini or Blender. Personally, I think Houdini is the best DCC on the market, regardless of price, and it is much cheaper than any alternative other than Blender for most people.
