  1. Well yes, I got that far. But I had read it to mean that I could, say have a catalog with a bunch of images that I could access. I was able to add a catalog of a .c4d file, which is useful. But let's say I wanted to access a file that had nothing but wood images, how do I do that? When I add the base folder where they are located, nothing shows up in the browser.
  2. Can anyone tell me what a catalog is and what it is used for? I've never been able to get anything to show up in a catalog. I just end up dragging folders into my favorites.
  3. I'm using the physical renderer in C4D r19.
  4. I'm trying to get a better handle on lighting using real world photographic data. I did a project recently where I was lighting a large (60'x60') tent and tried placing a large area light over the entire room and giving it a a lux value of 300, thinking this would mimic the large silks we use in television for area lights like this. But the lighting was all over the place. I'm using the physical camera, ISO 200-400, f8. Part of me felt that I was missing a crucial part of the puzzle, which was a light meter. Does anyone have any advice on how to properly set light levels for an interior scene?
  5. I've been using zync for a while now but have grown frustrated at its inability to play nice with windows. Windows doesn't like to download its plugin, run its plugin, swears it is a piece of malicious software. I'm looking for a plug in solution to render the occasional set of stills, no animation. There are times when I have a lot of work to do + rendering jobs and it was nice to out put my ten or so takes to a bigger machine and get back renders in about an hour. This was usually on their ~96 core machines. Can anyone recommend a service for this type of work? I see a few advertised on this site, but I don't really know the pros and cons of what I'm seeing...
  6. Is there a way to but plugins and layouts in one place (like a dropbox folder) so that I can use two machines and always have the setups be the same? I have a laptop I use for field work and am finding it cumbersome to copy the user prefs file back and forth between my two machines whenever I make a change.
  7. Is there a way to either: automatically have the object manager scroll to the currently selected object OR bring up the tag information in the attribute manager of the selected object?
