  1. Cinema 4D R19 discussion!

    When mentionned "Our success as a company is directly tied to your success as an artist, so we’re always working to provide the tools you need to succeed" and back to my previous posts, it is a matter of priorities. Seriously who asked for sound effector revisited instead of UVs stuff and so on... Let's see, but to be honest I'm starting to have a bitter taste... Hopefully MAXON will prove me wrong ;-) Cheers Regis
  2. MSA Renewal

    I did receive an email also as mine expire by 31th august. However, it's every year the same story and usually I renew it 3 - 4 days before expiration, no worries about it. Cheers Regis
  3. Team Render Server Question

    Well if you intend to use the server for rendering as well, you can use any machines of your choice. However, if the server doesn't do rendering for some reason, you could use the slowest machine you have. For writing files faster, a ssd would be an advantage as well as a fast Ethernet connection between computers via a fast router. Hope that helps. Cheers Regis
  4. Animating C4D Cameras in Motion Tracking

    I second what Cerbera mentioned. Also to be noted, the purpose to use another camera on top of the tracked camera (ShotCam), let's say created in C4D, would be to do some projections. Now if you wish to modify the ShotCam, for example to smooth the path (motion), you would need to re-project it and reconstruct some missing parts of your video (Set extension "mapping"). Cheers Regis
  5. Cinema 4D R19 discussion!

    Usually beginning of september.
  6. Cinema 4D R19 discussion!

    Arnold is already node based material editor like octane with the node editor. Cheers Regis
  7. Cinema 4D R19 discussion!

    So after having re-read the posts, my conclusion would be, let's wait & see, and to MAXON the benefice of the doubt some for new stuff coming as well as hearing their customers. Clock is ticking, we shall know soon the result and as usual some people will be happy, some others will not ;o) Cheers Regis
  8. Photomatch plugin for R18

    You don't need anymore Photomatch, as there is a tool available in C4D to do the job. I think it is named Camera Calibrator for still images if my memory is good. It will allow you to get the perspective etc... like Photomatch was doing. By the way, I think (not sure) I heard one time that Arndt Von Koenigsmarck (creator of photomatch plugin) was involved with MAXON in the camera calibrator tool development. Cheers Regis

    TFD stands for Turbulence FD (voxel based simulation).
  10. Cinema 4D R19 discussion!

    I agree with you as I'm not a guy who does comments or critics free of charge but more like constructive critics andI was just pointing some facts. Yet I'm still using C4D studio that I pay every year (I started from R11 as a hobbyist). Like every past years in this forum, I used to write that the update will make some of us happy and some of us unhappy or more frustrated... and I was confident that MAXON is working hard on different things (oh here we go again, priorities lol ). With regards to Take system, hell yeah it was a very good move (instead of writing 5 billions files for this or that render pass etc...), but is this great feature was enough to sell a full version fully priced or a good Rxx.5 version? I let everyone think of it with their own opinion. So we'll see what good surprises will come this time with R19 (as I doubt it will be a R18.5) even if there is only 1 good feature (just pure speculation here and seriously I strongly do hope I'm super wrong). Will I still purchase my MSA, this time and for the very first time, it will really depend on my budget and on the features proposed. (Just saying/writing that, I barely recognize myself oops). Do not misunderstand my point here, I do like C4D for what I'm doing and for my client needs, but I'm primarily a VFX Compositor (in another term a Nuke guy) and paying all I have to pay has a cost at the end of the day... IMHO, once again, some people will like the coming update, some not. It depends your needs, but hey we are all here in this great forum, sharing the same software, having our own differences and opinions but we are all part of a great community helping each others and sometimes arguing friendly about this or that. This last point at least makes me feel good and modestly feels part of something. Cheers Regis
  11. Cinema 4D R19 discussion!

    Definitely looking great, I agree, but as I'm using Octane as well as Arnold render engines, this was not my priority. But I do think it's great for some other users like you, no problem at all about that ;o) Just for argument sake, with physical render engine, MAXON did already an update of C4D render engine. Now how many major (and I mean major) updates on UVs, Bodypaint, Mograph, Thinking Particles (when it was possible, now too late with X-particles), Dynamics ( and I don't mention fluid stuff, let's forget about it), etc... Cheers Regis
  12. Cinema 4D R19 discussion!

    I get your point, but I think what was indirectly mentioned before is that there are some priorities. For instance, for years people are almost begging to have upgraded UVs stuff and bodypaint. So yeah, new render engine is fine, why not, but was it requested by the user community as a top prority, I don't think so. Now, don't misunderstand me, I do like things moving forward, and MAXON learnt as they are now communicating more etc..., but priorities guys... (sigh) Cheers Regis
  13. Cinema 4D R19 discussion!

    I do agree with what it 's mentioned above and to be noted as well, that the industry is moving rather quiet fast, and many of us are becoming more and more impatient... ;-)
  14. Cinema 4D R19 discussion!

    That's what I was obliged to do to keep going on and less loosing my temper lol I was also using extensively the "hide unselected" function to isolate the right part...what a story. (sigh)
  15. Cinema 4D R19 discussion!

    A lot of good and interesting points here with some great expectations. Now, like every year, the real question is how many people will be disappointed (or will like) the new version...? To be continued... PS: Cut Tool and its "Cut Visible Only" drove me nuts on a big project, happy to see I'm not the only one ;o) Cheers Regis
