    I bought C4D to create motion graphics to include in videos I create for my two boy's hockey teams. I'm also teaching my boys how to create in C4D and After Effects.

    Sure, the opening credits to MPFC had animation that your video reminded me of - the opening sequence with the flowers and, of course, the animated hand. Here's a link for comparison. Cheers.

    It made me laugh, had a bit of a "Monty Python" feel to it. Well done!

    Here's my attempt at subtle atmospheric glow. The file is quite large due to textures but I can upload some basics if you're interested.
  4. What I do is save each take as its own file. So, one file may be using camera 1, frames 200-300. I'll save that as a file, making sure to properly name the output file. I usually use the name of the save file. Will all of the files I want to batch render open, I add each file in turn to the render queue. Start the batch render and that's it.
  5. It Worked! Thanks so much!
  6. Do you have any more insight into what fixed this? I had the latest nvidia drivers installed but I then used DDU to uninstall them, followed by various releases of the drivers with no success. I'm still getting this problem. Any guidance would be appreciated. Cheers.

    Ice Hockey Puck

    Here's one I did a number of years back. I created the general puck shape and then created two polygon selection areas - one on the top for the logo and a loop selection along the side where the knurling is. I used tiled displacement to create the knurling effect. Lastly, I shrunk wrap text splines onto the side and then lightly extruded to create the text. This was the way I used to create the text and the knurling. If I only wanted knurling i'd use Cerbera's approach as shown. Cheers.

    Rohloff Speedhub

    Nice work. I can see how the different material applied to the side of the gears, as opposed to the chrome applied to the teeth, helps to differentiate it. You've also used only the balls in full circumference. That's a different approach. I modelled the balls and race as one unit (editable - connect and delete).
  10. Chris' xpresso tutorial on GSG just changed my life. I finally get it & it will save me big time.

      Once you get past that initial hurdle, you will start using Xpresso all the time. The 10 minutes of setting up a rig can save you hours down the line. I just set up a rig that turns off all of one group of lights with one checkbox. Incredibly helpful.

      Sorry, I just saw your comment now. You're right, now that I have (sort of) got the hang of it I can see a ton of uses for it - things I didn't want to do because it would have been too labour intensive. The more I learn the more I realize how little I know. Good times.
