  2. Hi everyone C4D Cafe needs your support to keep running. We provide facilities for discussion, jobs market, showcasing art, advertising, free scenes, plugins and substantial amount of video training. Given the large website traffic we have, huge file database, hosting, forum software and other costs, just running the Cafe is quite expensive. Please consider supporting us via Patreon by choosing the plan which fits your budget. In exchange you will be provided with supporter badge and good feeling knowing that you are helping out :) https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?u=23572478 Thanks
  3. Welcome to the cafe Introductions was not the place to post this. Please read the article / rules on how to post on the cafe. Moved to Misc Questions. If you are on Windows 10 you can either set up which apps open which type of file via the Control Panel / application settings / Default Applications, but you can also r-click directly on any c4d file, and choose Open with from the list that appears, which should contain both versions of Cinema. Presumably there is a similar procedure if you are on a Mac, but someone else would have to fill you in on where that was... CBR
  4. Today
  5. You can find the standalone *.exe in ...\Adobe\Adobe After Effects CC 2019\Support Files\Plug-ins\MAXON CINEWARE AE\(CINEWARE Support) You should be able to start it from there. There's probably also a way to tell AE to start that instead of the Student Version, but I have no idea how.
  6. A lot of info on the tour and all the cool included goodies here in this fun talk. The included value is even bigger than I thought as a LinkedIn Learning sub is included for three months plus tons of other bits and pieces.
  7. If it's not going to be animated mograph with some cones could do the trick. It might even be faked if you have the model of the spikes then had them lift through the bottom part. Displacement could be a trick, but the map would have to be perfect. If animating it with all the liquid stuff going on xparticles or houdini would probably be the way to go. It all depends on the detail and quality you want.
  8. C4D has mograph, lots of plugins like Cactus Dan's free tools, xparticles, Cycles4D. The bigger question is where is Blender better than C4D. The answer is it's free, rendering with Cycles or Eevee, Sculpting, Retoplology with free retopoflow plugin, Grease Pencil, probably character animation but I have not tried the changes in R21, post image workflow. They are looking to add a node based particle system in the near future that could make it as good as mograph. At that point the biggest thing C4D has going for it will be gone.
  9. Yesterday
  10. 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?).
  11. 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...
  12. 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. 😞
  13. 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
