  1. Hi everyone! So, this is a wip of my cozy tavern, wich is called "Three Trees tavern" or TTT. This is only a viewport render with a generic light and some fx but the final version is being prepared in red shift and photoshop with the help of my colleague Pedro Benjamin, since i'm not very good at lighting. I my initial idea was something more conventional but after some time i really felt the need to try something more organic and less architectural, and so the idea of something blended with the nature was formed. Everything here is being developed in c4d mostly using vo

  3. I just wanted to share with everyone a free resource I found on the web on creating volumetric effects in C4D using shaders and volumetric lights. Based on the 2018 date of the tutorial, it is centered around R19 (definitely pre R20 as there is no nodal shader system mentioned) but still the techniques and background information provided still make it relevant and worthwhile. The instructor, Marc Potocnik, also explains things in a very straightforward and clear manner. Marc also solves a long standing problem I have faced and that is the realistic creation of volumetric clouds i

  5. Bon Année! The cafe and everyone here is the main reason I've stuck with C4d over the years. Igor and the rest deserve our praise and thanks all year round!

  8. Happy New Year to all Cafe members! I was thinking of unleashing the destructive power of X-Particles on a "2020" banner but by the time I am done with it, it would by February. Nevertheless, my deepest gratitude to all the Cafe moderators for your dedication through-out the year and our esteemed Community Leaders: Igor and Hrvoje. I also hope Hrvoje is doing well given the earthquakes in Croatia. Having experienced a 4.5 earthquake that scared the daylights out of me (no fun watching a building wobble), I can only imagine the 6.3 one that hit Croatia (a 100 times stronger).

  9. Thought it might be fun to start a new thread with all kinds of stuff I'm working on or have worked on. So for starters: cats. I didn't want any pets. My wife wanted a dog. So now, we have 4 cats, 7 chickens and the dog is on it's way. The two ducks we once had, disappeared. We still think they're on a beach somewhere on a holiday or something. But anyway, the cats are all retarded and fun and each of them have their own little character. Bailey is a real lady. Looks at everyone like she's going to kill them, but doesn't hurt a fly and is actually the sweetest of all. Storm thinks he's i

  10. I totally agree that we get outstanding feedback from users! While it's true we've not yet been able to deploy an improved system for collecting ideas, I want to assure you that the ideas are neither buried nor unaddressed. Our product management team reads and keeps track of all your ideas, and we've integrated lots of them - especially as part of R23's Animation Workflow Improvements. We do get a lot of great ideas via the form - honestly too many to address them all while still making progress on new features and strategic objectives. Still - we tackle as many as we can and most importantly

  12. No. Make it using polygons, deformers, subdivision surfaces, and symmetry. This is actually very easy as tyres go; they can be quite a complex thing, but here you could start with a simple tube object, with around 48-64 radial segments and perhaps 8 or so depth segments, then make that editable, apply symmetry, and a twist deformer to angle the topology, then do (optional) inner extrudes where you want the treads and extrude those by a uniform amount. It should then be very simple to contour the outer surface to get the bulges with regular poly modelling tools and techniques.

  13. @RectroThanks. I think this is most I can do for the modelling. It's already January 15 morning on my end. So I'll just probably speed run the texturing later for the final piece. Here is an update so far.

  15. My journey to C4D was ignited by passion and inspiration. In about 1982 my first computer was a Texas TI 99/4a. It had no software support therefore I became a programer. Many years later as a Graphic Designer, I attended Roger Waters (The Wall) at the O2 London in May 2011 and yes, that was the one Nick Mason, David Gilmour played at. Being blown away with Gerald Scarfe’s animations and the fact that he uses C4D, I was inspired to attempt to make a modern version of The Wall movie. This is a good part to thank all the geniuses in the Cafe for all the help they have given me and

  16. Hello everyone. I have registered here today just to help you out. Not sure if you fixed it already, but I had the same issue for days. On R20 everything was great, but R21, S22 and R23 were the problem. Small, unclickable UI.... tried literally everything (like 5 versions of gpu drivers, windows reinstall, all kind of windows scaling options and hacks, even gpu change, then c4d config tricks with font size, etc) - absolutely nothing worked. Last thing I did before giving up, because "why not try that as well" was to update my Dell monitor drivers from manufacturer webs

  21. Awesome. Personally, I am a dog person but I like the description of their personalities. So how come there is no model of Cookie yet? When you have young children, you have to address the pet issue. I was not a pet person...pretty much dead set against living with any animal. So as a compromise, I wanted any animal that came into our house to live in a cage. So we started with fish...then gerbils....then guinea pigs. Well....14 years ago we ultimately got a dog for my oldest daughter who was having a rough time in the 7th grade. She needed a goal to focus on to get through s

  23. Hello, I just posted a suggestion using MAXON's ticket system. I'm not seeing much difference in this from the issue I saw in my original post over a year ago. Feature recommendations are still very buried and unaddressed, even though there may be a new support system internally. Could you please offer a better solution for customers to suggest, vote on, and discuss new features with product managers & developers? For example, there are some missing features in the Timeline and XRef systems that could greatly benefit Cinema 4D and make it much more usable in animation pipelines. It's

  25. You know when sometimes you just play around with something in 3D, and then it somehow escalates and a couple of hours later you have a render that you did not have in mind at all when you started? Yeah... Image is 5120x5120 so please have a look at it in fullscreen! If you have the stomach for it...

  26. Thank you both for your advice, I have removed basically all roughness from the glass material and removed the feathered image textures from two main lights. I have also removed the soft light from the front right and replaced with a more hard-edged soft box. I think the result is a lot more realistic now. Thank you again for your help!

  27. Progressive Rendering will just infinitely continue to refine the image unless you set up a maximum number of passes, but I believe Redshift has that set up by default. The result will be (in most cases) the absolute exact same than with the bucket render. There are some exceptions, for example with effects that do require precalculation (like Irradiance Cache GI). Those are set to Bruteforce replacements while using progressive since otherwise the mode would be useless if you had to precalculate the GI cache every time you change something in the scene. In general, you can just re

  31. You have enabled "Filter Strokes" with higher default settings. For your model you could disable this option or if you want to use it, you need set lower value for "Length"...

  32. I agree with you. if that option exists it should work well. i feel that using ctrl+c and ctrl+v in other modules like materials or the outliner, sometimes it doesn't work. i know that c4d shortcuts work in context, meaning that your mouse must be over the right spot when you execute de shortcut, but sometimes it doesn't work. Maybe the two issues are related...

  33. Thanks Dan Eeeeek, I guess the 15th comes a little earlier for me being in New Zealand! Anyway, here's a new WIP, finished with layout and lighting and now onto texturing. I think if I run out of time I will leave the chimney smoke out, I havent really thought about how to do that yet. Cheers, Jody

  37. For me it was the end of the 90s an R5 Go. Followed by R7XL later on, about half a year later i started at MAXON and sold my license, i needed the money I never produced any artwork that saw professional use, the closest thing were some graphical elements i created for the website of the business of a friend. That was at a time when frames were still a thing with websites.

  39. A big thanks to you Wolfgang. Really enjoying your tutorials as they all hit the sweet spot of modeling tutorials for me: hard surface modeling, quad modeling technics, dealing with curved surfaces and sci-fi. As for me: "Wolf 3D is must-see TV" Should you wish to have T-shirts made with that slogan, I expect $0.05 per shirt. I do agree with you about the probability on a Cerbera modeling channel on YouTube. That would take him away from time at the Cafe so I am pretty certain we would all lose in the long run. Thanks again! Dave

  40. A couple of other YouTube channels to keep in your subscription list: C4D Cafe - I believe this YouTube channel contains some of Hrvoje's tutorials from his Vertex Pusher days. Not sure if they are redundant to the tutorials also posted at the Cafe site itself, but regardless of where find them, these are the go-to source for the beginner modeler. Just outstanding. PolygonPen - Takes on some really interesting modeling and retopology challenges with his/her tutorials that involve curved surfaces and asymmetry. Again, not for the beginner modeler but you will get ther

  42. IME, full system power down is almost always the result of over-heating, usually in the main processor - are you absolutely positive that isn't the case here ? What sort of CPU temps does the system report before it goes down ? The second most common cause of issues with that is underpowered, dodgy or dying PSU. CBR

  45. Dan, Thanks for the response - most appreciated. After a bit more digging I found a couple of others with the same issue on the Redshift forum. It seems to be a 'Nvidia driver + Redshift' issue. As soon as C4D launched it was immediately ramping up the GPU clock to 1600+ MHz and keeping it there, hence the high temps. Rolling back to driver 451.48 has fixed it for the moment. Adrian and Co at Rs are aware of it so hopefully they can find and fix the issue in due course.

  46. I had no idea you were in Croatia as well otherwise I would have expressed concern for both you and Hrvoje. In fact, I checked your profile and the location said Germany before posting as I thought you had some ties to Croatia. I know...horrible when the earthquakes or hurricanes hit. We even have earthquakes in New Hampshire (which is very rare - I guess that is why we are known as the Granite State) but the worst we had was a 3.0 and that put a crack in our wall and ceiling. But we have lived through all manner of storms, ice storms, blizzards, hurricanes and new events such a

  48. @Igor Thanks! @VECTOR I think the challenge ends at Jan 15 : ) Here is another update. Notes: - Added Crates and Barrels. I'm still thinking what's the content for the crates. - The foliage is a stand-in made from xParticles. Most likely going to replace since its not really for ivy/foliage. - There is no longer ivy grower for R20+ up. So I'll probably use Blender for the ivy grower. It comes ship with an ivy grower. xparticles_branch.mp4
