    If I may, I love Cinema 4D and my intent with my Avatar is not to profess fanatical devotion to Blender. Now, Blender is a good program. It's users do have a lot to be happy about. I did try it when the interface improved with 2.8. But despite those improvements, it is still a bit clunky. Everything is there and for the most part stable, but (IMHO) the UI unnecessarily gets in the way of fully enjoying the program. In short, C4D is a lot more fun to use! So why do I have that Avatar? To serve as a reminder to MAXON's leaders should they troll the site that the hobbyist community does have a pretty valid option other than C4D for our CGI fix. Yes, we could follow the subscription plan, but we are hobbyists....we use C4D for the love of it and not as part of a business model. As for me, should my personal financial circumstances change such that I can no longer afford to stay current with the program, I still want to have something that works and not watch years of work go away when my subscription turns off. You can ONLY keep C4D on with a permanent license and those costs have increased significantly (from $620/year in 2017 for the Studio MSA to ~$950/license upgrade). So my avatar is really part of that old argument of subscription vs. permanent licenses. I am a hobbyist that wants permanent licenses as long as it remains affordable for a hobbyist. Blender as an open source program will always be affordable. Blender gives us options....a reminder for the MAXON employees and CEO who visit the site and not intended to disrespect its members. Dave

    So.....tomorrow is the "MAXON 3D & Motion Design Show: The Siggraph Edition" with the Mr. McGavran kicking off the show with: "some exciting announcements and a few sneak peeks at the future of MAXON products" and not one thread about what to expect in the next release in the Cafe? Did I miss something? If I did not miss something and there really is complete silence, then could it be due to one or more of the following? We don't expect anything different than what has already been announced in S22. We finally got an update to the UV editing system in S22!!! Anything after that is anti-climatic. We have no further expectations so there is no point in speculating. We realize that speculation is pointless...so why bother. We will get what we get....so just wait for it. Mr. McGavran's R21 Siggraph presentation spun the room with the announcement of subscriptions which was the bulk of his presentation. As such, we don't remember that presentation for its feature discussion because we were all in denial. Based on that experience, which was a shock to everyone's system, we are fearful of what he has to say this year and therefore don't want to talk about it. In short, we still have PTSD. Usually by now we would have a 3 page thread going with everyone pitching in their hopes and dreams. In that discussion, which can switch from civil to nasty with one post, there would be: The usual list of features covering the same areas of the program in need of an update. Some really valid points being made about features we never knew we needed. Arguments raging over why do we have to wait so long for much needed features - including those we never knew we needed until they were mentioned in the thread. A well timed post from 3D-Kiwi about life after MAXON. Predictions over MAXON's future which only generates more controversy. At least two threats from the moderators threatening to shut the thread down if tempers continue to escalate. A few posts from brave MAXON employee's trying to be the voice of reason. ....hmmm.....maybe the silence is better. Dave

    I just wish MAXON would make an Indie version of C4D that's a bit more affordable for hobbyists. The affordable cut down editions were great for that (Mograph edition had enough features for me while being significantly cheaper than Studio), but they have been eliminated.

    Basically, yes. The Neutron node system is the basis for all new features going forwards. In its current state though it isn't something most people will want to use directly; it is super powerful but like any node system, not the kind of interface everyone would enjoy using. The next step to be taken is to create a new object manager which acts as a much more friendly, day to day interface for the nodes which should look much more familiar. When everything is in place, you will be able to choose to continue your c4d life with a new object manager, benefiting from the huge speed increase and all the new user-created assets that will hopefully come from this. Or, as and when you desire, you will be able to open objects up and dive into the node system when you need more power. The speed increase will vary from scene to scene, but the biggest gains will be in projects with large numbers of things, ie. objects, tags, keyframes, clones etc. These projects have always been held back by c4d's object manager implementation. If a project is held back by physics sims, then don't expect any speed improvements at all, that would need a new physics engine to help there. However some test projects are showing 10x speed increases in viewport performance, others are showing 1000x improvements. In fact depending on viewport settings and how well the new viewport turns out, some projects are showing north of 10,000x speed bumps in terms of handling large numbers of objects. How well this all translates into real world performance will need to be seen, but what this all represents is the upcoming removal of c4d's biggest bottleneck. You'll be able to have a go yourself in the next release, but expect another release or two after that before it is well enough supported by render engines, plugins and internal c4d features before you'd want to start using it in live commercial jobs.

    I really wish they do consider that in the future, an indie version of C4D. Specially now with Maya Indie arriving worldwide to compete with Blender, MAXON needs to start thinking more of its indie users.

    Although I don't post much these days I check in several times a week. Yeah I watched the Neutron preview and it looks awesome. Had MAXON released this while I was still using C4D I would likely still be here. In my opinion Neutron is a lot further along in development than what they may have hinted at. They've been working on it for many years. They were certainly working on it when I was a Beta tester but we were never shown anything. Hope you are all doing well. Life is good here in New Zealand with no Covid-19 and the only cases being people caught at the border. New Zealander's returning home all have to go into managed isolation / quarantine. Those of us that still have a job are all back at work and life is pretty much back to normal. Yeah still riding my bike a lot, still using Modo and modelled a number of big Lego models when we were in Lockdown 2 months ago. Modo's core is being upgraded like C4D's. Development isn't as fast as what people would like but they are making progress. Stay safe everyone Nigel / 3DKiwi

    @paulselhi Here it is! @Igor I agree. When I was playing around with shading the smoke, the smoke is actually following the same motion as the fire. When I make the smoke darker it completely enveloped the same, as if it didn't have its own motion, I will do research on fire, and I thank you for taking a look. @3D-Pangel You were right, X-Particles may be intimidating, but once you dive in its not that scary, just take it in steps.

    Thanks for mentioning the RingLoop plugin @Cerbera @thanuleeOnly wanted to point out that I fixed a bug in the "Ring" functionality, and redesigned the plugin to provide for separate "Ring" and "Loop" commands (on request of a user wanting to be able to assign separate shortcuts). Additionally, I have also made the "Skip" amount scriptable. Example scripts are included in the newest version 0.4 Again, you can assign shortcuts to any of these scripts, allowing for a speed up in workflow if you frequently require a particular skip-amount.

    That screenshot in the post is definitely not R7. Interface looks way to fresh imho. Okay, so others in the thread have already explained how texturing for game engines works. It's an entirely different beast to something that you would do in C4D or other 3D software. Unless you're using Triplanar Mapping, probably everything is going to need a UV map. Even a flat plane. A game engine simply does not have concepts like cubic or spherical mapping unless you specifically write a shader for it. I personally have not tried or used kbar's 4D Paint yet but that is mostly because I use Substance Painter / Substance Designer for my texturing workflow. These two tools are pretty much industry standard and they do everything you could ever need for game engine texturing and especially Painter is pretty easy to get into. Photoshop as texturing tool is simply outdated by now and has been for years. People definitely work on diffuse and other textures in it, but they certainly do not use it as a texturing tool. It's too tedious and lacks even basic features for the quality of texturing that is expected these days.

    @3D-Pangel That is straight from the Redshift Render Engine, no grading applied, not even bloom. Explosia FX vs TFD: These past few weeks I've gotten to learn Explosia Fx, as well as Turbulence FD. Both have their advantages and disadvantages when dealing with Fire & Smoke, but in essence they're the same. For Explosia it works really well with X-Particles because of the use of Modifiers. Turbulence FD works with X-Particles as well, but there's a bit of a learning curve. TFD is very technical, whereas Explosia FX you can hop on it and not worry about the right values, its just plug and play. TFD has GPU rendering which is huge, if X-Particles had that, TFD would be less favored in my opinion. VDB & Artifacts: When I went over to TFD to redo the render that I did in Explosia, I came across a problem that I never encountered before, and that is Artifacts, mainly when dealing with Density/Smoke. The Artifacts [stepping] look like steps, like a Minecraft cloud. To fix this, you have to make sure that your Density values in TFD don't go exceedingly high, or to be safe, don't let them go past the value of 1. Example: If you set you Density channel to 1 in the Emitter, the value won't go past 1. However, when working with fuel in TFD, it adds Density every second. You can refer to the Jawset Fourm here where we break this down, and tell you how to tailor your channels: https://forum.jawset.com/t/getting-stepping-boxy-renders/1071/14 I'm guessing the value setting in Explosia FX is the Explosia Tag, as well as the Physical Data in the XP Particles. Regardless, there's always some sort of stepping, even the first animation I did, however you won't notice it unless you're super close up, and/or looking for it obsessively. Voxel Size: A smaller voxel size means greater detail of your simulation, it also means longer render times. The new Upres feature in X-Particles is buggy. When I check it on, it does in fact change my simulations. My advice is that if you're Uprezing via Explosia FX, only have the Voxel Size changed, and all of the other values in the Upzezing option, bring them to 0. That way your simulation won't drastically change. I learned that the hard way when I checked on upzezing in Explosia FX, and my render was completely different. Shading Emission & Density in Redshift: If you're rendering the Density channel by itself, which then ties into the Scatter & Absorption Channels, then it's literally plug and play. If you're using the Emission channel however, there's a secret sauce to it. When shading the fire/emission, your Gradient, as well as the Advanced Tab is what you mess with to balance the smoke and fire look. With the Emission Gradient, I have two Black Knots to the left side. I take the 2nd Knot that's to the right and push it just a little bit towards the center, just by a hair. With that, the flames looks sharp and define. Also, if you want more smoke and less fire, taking that 2nd knot and sliding it towards the center gets rid of flames. In the Advanced Tab, playing around with the New Max values under Emission Remap Range can lessen the intensity of the flames, to give the density a more defined look, and messing with the New Max values in the Density Remap Range also brings out the detail in the smoke, BUT if you increase the value too much, you'll get Artifacts/Stepping. Once you know what each value and gradient does...then you'll have better control of the look of your fluids, and from there its an amusement park. I've attached stills of my settings for a explosion I rendered using Turbulence FD. Instead of rendering straight out of TFD to Redshift, I converted the bcf files to VDB, because the VDB workflow is faster [trust me, I did a lot of tests]. My theory is that TFD uses one GPU through Redshift, even though Redhsift can use more then one. It takes a long time to get what's rendered on file with a bcf file. However, VDB files are much easier to read it seems, even though the size if much bigger then a bcf file. Conclusion: Play with the simulation values and see what you get. Learn the terminology of these simulations, like fuel and desnity, so you'll know how they work together. To avoid artifacts, make sure your Density values aren't so high where you'll see stepping; lowering the voxel size doesn't fix the issue [refer to link to Jawset Fourm]. Shading you fire and smoke is the real key to "the look" of your simulations. Know what each parameter is and what it does. Here's a link to Redshift's Volume Render the explains to you what the options do: https://docs.redshift3d.com/display/RSDOCS/Volume+Rendering?product=cinema4d When its ready, I'll post the TFD explosion I made, which are from the stills that you see below.

    Occasionally I see something so cool I'll post it here whether Cinema, or 3D in general is involved or not... Today's is one of those, and one to be filed under 'Inspirational', although I have no doubt that some 3D was involved in this video, even if a lot of it could have been (and was) the real life object filmed in flight. I may well model it myself - the forms in the bird are literally screaming out to be Sub-D modelled and animated... So with that said I bring you FestoLabs latest experiments with bioform engineering. Spkrs up - soundtrack as awesome as the rest of it ! Enjoy...

    I am surprised that MAXON dont have more direct involvement with the Cafe. A community centre where you can come and get direct help with a problem, get the news, maybe a giveaway, a competition, a route to speak to the bigwigs would surely be worth its weight in gold to a product like C4D. Literally the only reason I am a C4D user is because of the Cafe, and because you could get help from Nigel (sometimes pretty acerbic help, but you learned to enjoy that pretty quickly). Now you can pretty much rely on Cafe mods and regulars to help with problems in a way you simply can't with any other software. I wish Substance had a place like this, or Octane, or any Adobe product, you name it. Maybe I have missed something and there is already an arrangement? We are so close - I am posting just below Rick and Dave themselves and this kind of engagement is great, long may it continue.

    Hi! @DMcGavran , @Igor,@srek, & @RBarrett Besides better responses to bug reports labeled as 'Suggestions and Ideas for MAXON,' is there any progress on the collection of user Feature Requests for future versions of Cinema 4D? I've been talking to different animators who participated in the #MovingColin contest who have some really good ideas on ways to make character animation in the Timeline better after the experience. I suggested the Bug Report route to them to get these ideas to you, but I still feel like this is a poor, black box way to submit user feedback. A dedicated web site would be great, but something as simple as a Feature Request forum on C4DCafe with polls & discussions would be a better temporary solution than the bug report model: more formal than a Wishlist thread that gets outdated & forgotten with every release, more effective as market research, more user-friendly in the presentation of an idea, and of little-to-no cost to MAXON in the meantime. It sounds like you're aware of the need & benefits, I just was curious if something is being implemented as it has come up again. With much gratitude, thank you!

    Here are the top 5 things I really hope the newer version of C4D implements - An improved character animation module, better auto weights, etc... (I heard they will talk something about it on IBC! Fingers Crossed) - Realtime viewport preview when working with some of the sketch and toon modules, right now, these non-photorealistic projects relies on Interactive render region, which is quite slow and unrensponsive... - A better sketch and toon, something that allows us to control the overall scene shadows/gradients, etc, like you can already do inside the cel shader, but in a global/scene level. - A proper symmetry mode... something that allows you to make adjustments to a model, even if it is not under a symmetry object no longer (ie: a character already rigged, etc) - Something like... bendy bones from Blender? I know we have spline IK, but it would be awesome to have something that could be easily integrated into a facial rig for instance.. And of course, an indie license! That would be the icing on the cake!

    You appear to be missing the main point of what nodes are for... it is nothing to do with quality of final result, but simply that a nodal system is leagues more helpful in a complex material setup because you only have to change a node in a single place for that change to be propagated everywhere else that node appears or is referenced in the material setup. Say for example that you have a stone material made of many complex layers, and one map is used in 20 different places within that material, across lots of different material channels. Now you want to change something about the scale of it let's say, or some other property. With Standard materials you would have to change that texture map by altering its controls / parameters in every single place it appeared, whereas with nodes you'd only have to change it once, in a single place. Also nodes often provide additional functionality that may not be available via the old approach, and that older way does not allow you to view the entire hierarchy of a setup at once. Before we had a nodal material system in Cinema that was the number one request on the wish-list of nearly everyone that used the program ! However it is also true that in some cases a Nodal material is sometimes more work to set up than a standard material, certainly initially, and especially with simpler surfaces where not much map-sharing occurs, but the result is always infinitely more easily extensible than any non-nodal approach. It's about picking your battles - if you are making a very complex material with heavily entwined map inter-dependencies, or you need to make a heavily custom material that would be very difficult to achieve with Standard type then nodes are the best thing since sliced bread. But if you just want to throw a colour channel and a bump map on something, then Standard mats will probably serve you better and take less time to set up initially. The quality will be identical, or close to it in both methods. Nodal systems are clearly the future in terms of building ever better and more flexible materials, and indeed Objects and other parameters in 3D more generally. With the recent announcement of Neutron that nodal approach is applied, for the first time in Cinema to more than just materials, and the power and flexibility of Cinema increases exponentially as a result. With that, models, and almost anything else you can think of can be infinitely procedural and extensible too ! The take-home message here is that you don't HAVE to learn nodes today, and nothing about the quality of your renders will change if you do or don't. But Nodes are the future, and you will need to know them eventually, so you might as well start now regardless, so that by the time they are de facto standard everywhere (and it could be argued they are already) you will know how to work with them !!

    I want to thank all of you in this thread, who have given me some type of input, or direction. Since posting, I have done quite a bit of research into this topic, and have found that it appears that, Substance Painter is indeed the modern de facto standard for doing exactly what I was asking about. However, being the crème de la crème comes with a price, in the form of training. Albeit, there are a plethora of training videos scattered across the internet dealing with Substance Painter, sadly the majority of those videos are at the Intermediate to Advanced level, even when their title states, Beginner, or Fundamental. Especially the training videos found right on Allegorithmic's Substance website. Nice videos, however very fast paced, and still more towards the Advanced stages. Having said, It looks like i will be posting more than my fare share of questions regarding the "marital relationship" between Cinema 4D, and Substance Painter, right here in, "Textures & UVs" in the near future. Once again, thank you everyone.

    That's great and the selling point of C4D. I don't get the node fixation. Reason why I like Modo and C4D is that it's more artist friendly. But it's a cool project, reminds me of Softimage ICE. But with Blender growing a lot around here and Autodesk confirming the Indie license at $250 for next month, C4D will have a hard battle to fight for users around here.

    At some point all polygons are broken down to triangles, at the very leats the renderengine will need triangles. Some fileformats and applications don't even support anything but triangles. Cinema 4D supports Triangles, Quads and N-Gons, even with holes. On import into any other application the structure, and therefore the polycount, might have to be adjusted.
  48. 2 points
    Quads AND triangles are polygons. In your case the primitive cube consists of 6 quad polygons. When converted to another format, the quad polygons may get converted to triangles. Since 1 quad equals 2 triangles, your 6 quad polygons become 12 triangle polygons. Edit: If you would triangulate the cube in Cinema4D you would end up with 12 triangles to begin with.

    Hello ABC Loop is a very simple Xpresso tool that allow us to loop an abc file inside Cinema4d. Sometimes we need to loop only a certain portion of the abc sequence. With this simple tool we can create that sequence by selecting the starting frame in the alembic and a loop time span. The Xpresso does the rest. I've tested the tool and so far is working fine. Instructions: The scene file contains two null with additional controls. A simple and a more complex version. Each ABC file needs one of command null to generate a loop. Hope it helps Cheers Joao Batista
