  1. what about library files?
  2. 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.
  3. 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?
  4. I'm playing around with prorender this week. While I'm excited by the real time aspect of this renderer, I'm disappointed by how grainy the textures all seem to come out. Is it just the case of needing to up the samples and filtering to a higher count (I'm previewing at 400 samples and 2x filtering)? It also is a bummer to not be able to get good brushed metal textures. Are there resources for pbr textures that work in c4d prorender?

    R19 ProRender

    I have the same issue, but on a pc. GTX1070 card. Is it the card? I get renders to the picture viewer instantly but my viewport just goes black and gives me the error message. I'm using a stupid simple scene too. Any advice greatly appreciated. test.zip

    Has anyone tried MaxtoC4d?

    Wondering if anyone has used this plugin. I have a client who is married to 3ds max and wondering if we can use it for file exchange. http://www.3dtoall.com/products/maxtoc4d/

    Unable to edit 16/32 bit exports in PS

    Still very much worth it to export at 32 bit and get the color correction you want.

    Typical workflow would be to import 16/32, and then downsample to 8 bit, getting the correct colors you wanted along the way, save a copy.
  9. You will need a drafting program like Vectorworks or AutoCAD to create drafts for events like this. Rendering can be done via a program like C4D/3DS max etc. Vectorworks favors C4D, AutoCAD of course goes for more autodesk like programs like 3DS. I'm a Vectorworks guy and can say that Lighting people love it for the lighting libraries and all of the paperwork that it can generate.

    explanation of ray threshold?

    That is what I had thought. I think that the manual is misleading in it's explanation. I always turn it up to 10% anyway.
  11. I've been reading through the manual and am confused about the ray threshold settings. I cannot determine whether setting the threshold higher or lower is meant to decrease rendering time. Can anyone explain?
  12. Seems like the only place I can find anything of value is TurboSquid. Does anyone else have recommendations for good, textured, 3d models?
  13. I have my laptop built by @xi computers. It's a true desktop replacement, so my only complaint would be that the battery life is short. But it's a desktop power in a portable unit, so I don't complain. Fully customized to your specs.
