    Oh good - the first one of these has arrived. Things may have gone a bit plot-mental, but the force remained strong with the VFX department My favourite bit was when they said... CBR

    What do you mean by that? The idea I had was to use the tool to select a set of polygons to be copied. The you could select polygons on the same mesh, or other mesh, to paste the copied polygons to. But I would go further, and allow to "store" more than one source. You could copy and store up to 5 sources, and paste any of them on any mesh. I wouldn't go futher than this, otherwise I would just be copying the PolyGnome plugin. This PolyDup plugin (while using the idea behind PolyGnome) is just meant to quickly select polygons and copy them. So, the user wouldn't have to bother with the steps to create assets (or presets) from these selected polygons. Just select polygons, use the tool to indicate these are the source, select other polygons and indicate these are the targets ... and the source gets copied to the targets.

    My plugin FD UVToolkit has been released, it’s a plugin to make UV unwrapping easier in C4D ! As you may know, the native C4D UV tools are quite poor, and as I have to UV unwrap a lot of objects daily. So I made this plugin to make the workflow fast and intuitive! It Requires only three steps to UV Unwrap an object: Reset the UVW Tag. Highlight the edges you want the UV seams to be. Click to unwrap. And it’s done! Here’s a quick demo! There’s 8 new tools included in the package, get to know more about all of them and get the plugin, please visit: https://gumroad.com/l/jFoAv Flavio Diniz

    maybe not related to this behaviour... But what I remember (week or two ago, maybe more) when I was logged into my account, I got some message about "your profile is completed etc..." and was opened my profile window. I was simply close it and continue in work, but I´m not sure if this notification about new device login start at that time or not...

    Fair enough - I just remember all those setups you post with rigid bodies and connectors CBR

    news flash young lady if you work in any industry you ARE A COG IN THE MACHINE, it is their goal to make money some are less brutal about it, but nonetheless, generally speaking,you don't really matter in their grand scheme. most recruiters or interviewers will not let you in on the dirty side of work. you mention doctors, lawyers and such. entry level they get the sh** hours and jobs. so get over it and welcome to the real work-a-day world. if you don't like it go free lance then you are your own boss.

    Ok, this is gonna be tricky to solve. The following is true about your scene. - The cloth part has no real world thickness, which may confuse the collision calculations... - Your Connectors ONLY connect the objects, but don't otherwise instruct them to avoid each other. or not intersect. - The movement of the rigid body is quite extreme, in that it twists and turns a lot, which dynamics tends to struggle with. Those things together combine to give you a setup in which you get the result you get ! I will have to have a think about the best way to avoid this, so will do that and get back to you. Dynamics aren't really my thing though, so will be most pleased if one of our dynamic experts like @jed could come along and find the answer quicker CBR

    Hi! Thank You for Your answer. You definetely have pointed for the reason why this extrusion is behaving like this. I still don't know where all the points got from. I did again the same procedure and now it suddenly is ok. I wish I knew what is causing this but I am very gratefull for Your answer. Thank You! Piotr

    Hi, You can do this using voronoi fracture with push appart effector. About time speeding up, set key frames and make custom interpolation, or probably can be done also with some xpresso setup. Dane

    I was wondering if there was anyway to export the field force box to Unreal Engine as a .fga? I am faking an airflow simulation through a stadium using Field Forces, and I see people exporting .fga from houdini and maya and importing them into unreal and using that as a way to manipulate the particles in UE4. When you make a field force r21 and adjust the size of the box and display of the "arrows" inside the box it looks very similar to a vector field that is exported from houdini and used to manipulate the particles in UE4. I was just wondering if there's a way (plugin, script, etc. ) that could make that happen? Thanks, N

    @BIgor The biggest thing that bothers me is the scale. Having the depth-of-field so extreme really shrinks the apparent scale down a lot. Much like a tilt-shift effect, which makes images look like miniatures. Since I create images and animation for cars, the other big thing is the size of the tiles on the floor. Looks like a bathroom floor. Try using large, square tiles that are in the 16" or 18" (45 cm) range and very small grout lines. Smooth and reflective too. I know you're in Europe, but I imagine the look would be similar. It is odd that the yellow care in particular, gets a little dark on top, when it should be very well lit with all those lights. I've attached a test render I did last year using Corona. The lighting isn't perfect, but the scale and the tile floor are good. I'm currently working on finishing this project, so will post updates soon. Good luck and post more images when you make adjustments.

    It wasn't working properly. Matrix Extrude creates internal divisions. So it's not what you would expect.

    Hi Cebera Thanks for the reply. Attached is my file. I am trying to rotate around joint 5 but the mesh collapses on it's self and I would like nice definition as shown in the 'example twist'. Really, I would like the twisting of the skin to happen over the joints from the centre point (joint 5) all the way to the two ends as the one main shape rotates the other. But I've spent two days trying to do that and got nowhere, so at the moment I'd be super happy just to be able to twist the short virticle between the two rotating shapes. Please let me know if you need any more info. Thank you Matt Help_File_Rigging.c4d

    It's not a complete solution, at least because the second half of sphere isn't projected to the plane and the plane itself may not be infinite, but I guess there might be a way to set up the rest exponentialProjection_01.c4d

    In this tutorial I will show how to model a common plastic box in Cinema 4D using simple hard surface modelling techniques. You can download a project folder with two project files. both files contain the reference images we will be using, so we can get started right away. You can download the project folder here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jjfv9khuoam9ljh/Plastic Box - Project files.7z?dl=0 I hope you'll enjoy the video. Thanks for watching! At the end of the video I am using two pluging for texturing and rendering the object. These plugins are optional and available here: Nikomedia Scene Rig https://nikomedia.at/nikomedias-scene-rig-ultimate/ Greyscalegorilla Texture Kit Pro: https://greyscalegorilla.com/downloads/texture-kit-pro/ Cheers contrafibbularities

    You don't even need Transfer tbh (although @teknow is right, it's almost as useful as reset PSR !) Just click on the 'X' of 'P.X' to turn it yellow, hold shift and and do the same on the B of R.B, and they should all go yellow. now you can right click any one of the yellow bits, and do Copy. Then select the yellow bit of the new object and R-click Paste Identical to paste all values at once... takes a bit of practice the first time, but eventually is very quick indeed... Talking of Reset PSR, that can also be used to make the coordinates of one thing the same as something else - sometimes you can just move one object under the other in the OM (ie make it a child) and hit Reset PSR, and you're all good...

    I recently used object buffers to make a transparent ghost effect in an animation. I animated the scene with the buffer and then re-rendered it without the ghost character and used the buffer to add her back in in After effects with the option to make it as solid or transparent as I wanted. So yes it should work and yes you will need to made a render without the buffered object as well.

    Excellent, we have the pic now But we will need see your setup though, so we know where you might be going wrong. Pls do 'Save with assets' in the C4D scene, zip the folder that creates and upload here, or if it's too big, to dropbox, and link it instead. Cheers CBR

    It was a delibrate UV edit, on a plane, for graphic design purposes. Not like it was an existing model. So I was effectively changing the UV of the plane. If I was to drag on the texture to an un-edited plain, then yes it wouldn't work. Work flow was. Get plane divide by 8, so you get 4 for each view. Convert to mesh. UV Edit. Mesh is flat anyway just got to move them so that they are stagged. Create the UV mesh. (not sure if I needed that but did it anyway) Saved as PSD. Put the artwork with both posters side by side. Got new material. Using the colour channel for the artwork. Dragged the material onto the re-calculated UV. Seemed to work when rendering. (this might be the but that is a bit funky?) I noticed you can also load in the UV editor, And it says something like texture already in memory. Or words to that effect.

    You should be able to just rotate the Wrap, or the Deformed model. Alternatively you could use the Shrink Wrap Deformer or even the Bend Deformer. If we can't see the problem, I can't easily provide a solution without speculation. Could you please post a simplified scene? Cheers

    I found I learned fastest by redoing the same models until they were the best they could be... sometimes even now I model something twice (or more) if I remain unconvinced I found the best way the first time. But yours isn't so much a case of needing to start again, just 'finish modelling' the top section to add the thickness you are missing, and to retopo it into quads. Why not have a go at that yourself, and post what you get, and we can see how you're getting on, and tell you the right answer if you're struggling to find it... CBR

    I don't have Redshift but to me it looks like you're completely blending the material into nothing which would explain the change in refraction. EDIT: Unless of course you've layered the glass below the droplet layer in a different way that I can't see in the image. In that case, nevermind.

    Hi everyone, I am working on a fluid simulation system called Jet Fluids. It is based on the open source Jet Framework by Doyub Kim. This is a very early Alpha plugin and I work on it every now and then to add new features and workflows. But it will keep changing and being updated. It is available for R20 and R21 for both OSX and Windows only for Patreon Alpha Tier subscribers: https://www.patreon.com/plugins4d This was free for about a year but I just recently moved it to the Patreon to track who really uses it and who is interested in funding it. If you use it and create anything cool, or find any bugs then just post it up here and let me know. You can also visit: https://www.plugins4d.com/jet-fluids for more information as well.

    I don't think you can really game when rendering. It's GPU rendering yes, but for ever frame preparation and other stuff the CPU is still in use. Just render a still that takes a while or an animation and look at the CPU / Memory usage. You'll see what I mean. I might be wrong though, I only have a single 1070 and I always render when I go to bed or leave the house.

    Thanks for the responses! Here is a file for you to look at. @Noseman, I tried your approach and it helped but the kink remained, just moved closer to the end so I feel like I'm still missing something. I also found a cheat by reducing the end growth to 99%. That seems to do the trick but just curious if that's the best solution. Thanks again! Helix_Sweep_Issue.c4d

    I hate to say it, but if C4D becomes part of Adobe's Creative Cloud that is actually a better deal than what MAXON is giving us today. Creative Cloud has more software options, cheaper price, true monthly billing plus cloud storage. It is truly a sad day when you start to prefer Adobe over MAXON. What has become of this world? Dave
