    You have to keep your camera level to make the verticals straight, at which point it will no doubt cut the top off, then you can use the Y offset in the camera to move the film plane up to frame your shot. this is the same principle as a shift lens or a view camera. Deck

    So very beautiful... and so very strange...

    Over Xmas, Santa and the gods of 3D told me it was time for a PC upgrade, and me , only knowing vaguely what I am doing in that area, thought I should run my planned new system by you guys for some basic C&C before I go buy stuff and get building... My main focus is modelling, but I do need a bit of a render boost too, and plan to be entering the world of GPU rendering with Redshift, so I figure I need a machine with pretty decent graphics power, but not necessarily top-end as I am also on a low-medium budget for this - wanna spend around £2.5K including OS and a new 27 inch screen if I can. But also want some decent general C4D single thread improvements if I can get them without going too mental budget-wise for in-app performance, and a reasonable amount of CPU cores for when I want to test the native renderers. In addition to Cinema this will also be an Audio / Video Workstation running DaVinci Resolve and Steinberg's Cubase 10 and a sh*tload of (mainly orchestral) virtual instruments and plugins. Currently I am planning this Win 10 system, which seems to give me most of what I want for not too many of the $$$... CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 12 core (3.8GHz standard, 4.7GHz Boost) Cooler: Wraith Prism Fan cooling (shipped with processor, to be upgraded in Summer if needed) MB: Gigabyte X570 Aorus Pro AMD AM4 X570 Chipset ATX PSU: Gigabyte GP-G750H 750W 80 plus (free with MB!) Case: Phanteks Enthoo Pro Black Full Tower RAM: 64GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB (2x16GB) DDR4 3200MHz Dual Channel Memory (RAM) Kit (x 2) GPU: Gigabyte Aorus GeForce RTX 2070 8GB Audio-MIDI I/O: Focusrite Scarlett 4i4 (external USB), Genelec, KRK. Storage: Samsung 860 QVO 1TB Solid State Drive/SSD (system drive) + WD Blue 2TB 3.5" So, if those of you that know would be kind enough to cast a critical eye over that and let me know about any awaiting traps, or anything that might not work with something else, or what else I could consider, I would very much appreciate your input. Muchly thankings CBR

    If you use OpenSubDiv SDS boundaries in Edge + corner mode, you can have SDS AND your straight corners If you put the wind deformer in a Null with the SDS then you can put that under a cloth surface to add a small amount of thickness. The hierarchy would look like this... CBR

    Another point to make, if you're looking into putting the VSTs on a different SSD from the operating system, then remember that the writing isn't that important, but the reading is. You'll probably only write once, read many in terms of sample library usage. As such, it might be worthwhile to have a cheaper Samsung 4TB QVO for your sample libraries. I didn't want to go that route since I only have a single drive in the laptop, and operating system then need to share the same disk as the sample libraries, so I also need to pay attention for the writing speed. Looking at the vi-control.net forums (that's where I get my mustard) 64GB seems to be quite "low" amount of RAM these days, when it comes to large templates in DAW. Just make sure to allow room for expansion, if you go 64GB. Don't use up all your memory banks.

    Oh, so simple! Thank you again :)!

    No worries, its a photography thing that just happens to be repeatable in Cinema. In a proper view camera you can spin around and offset all the axis to some extent, helping with focus as well as changing the geometry and crop of the image. Deck

    If you have a sh*tload of virtual instruments (sampled based I assume) you might consider a larger SSD, Or an extra 2TB SSD to replace the HDD, and put your samples on there. I have just replaced my 500GB SSD in the laptop with a Crucial 2TB to hold all sample libraries, which I "less than occasionally" use to create video backgrounds ... have about 1.2 TB of VIs. I know, in my case it's a waste of the space, since I maybe use the VIs once a year ... if not less (figure of speech).

    Have fun guys. So glad I don't have to do this behind the scenes work anymore

    It is... didn't realize you're running R19, sorry.
