    Radial cloner Help

    Thanks, I downloaded the project, but have no idea how to use it... the only parameter that appears to do something is Effector strength and it is only removing the last five spheres.. I need spheres to be added 1 by 1 along the arc.. without the spheres moving. I reckon Im missing something w\ regards to your method, Im not at all familiar with expresso or formula.

    Radial cloner Help

    Forgot the mention... behind the first set of spheres would be a static darker set.. The top cloner set i want to move as meter intensity is raised.. so 1,2 3,4 etc around the arc as sound is turned up in the plugin and the led meter increases... I want the top cloned spheres to line up over the bottom layer as the number of clones is changed. Simply.. i want to learn how to add cloner spheres in a circular cloner, as right now when i add the, the spheres are subdivided in distance and the spheres move.

    Radial cloner Help

    ok, so, Im working on a LED meter for an audio plugin.... I am trying to find out how to increase the number of 'bulbs"\Spheres so that it appears that the meter bulbs are insreasing in intensity as each one lights up.... I would do this by just adding brighter coloes and a glow to each one as the meter increases.. So.. my problem is.. when i increase of decrease the number of clones spheres, as the number is decreased, the number of shperes also increase space between them.. What I ideally want is a way to have the spheres to decrease\increase but also stay in SAME place as I do that... so that the meter 'bulbs' do not move as I increase\decrease the number of spheres in the cloner. If anyone can help, I would appreciate it I have attached a small example .c4d. Meter.c4d

    K, so .. a couple of things

    okie doke, ill give it a shot... and by the way, I use the latesst firefox, only add on is AdBlock plus.
  9. couple of quickies.. Is there a simple way to lighten up the viewport views without affecting the rendered scene, Im finding that altho my Octane scenes are bright, a lot of times I cant see much in the viewports as it is too dark. Secondly.. The forum keeps asking me to disable Ad Blocker... altho I have already done so... any ideas? TIA! and Cheers!

    Alpha background in C4D using octane

    Good grief, I seriously should start simplifying my search terminology when googling. I used.. "transparent alpha background octane c4d" and that link didnt come up at all. Works... perfectly. Much love ! Thank you, seems I can always count on you.
  11. I'm sure it's something simple im missing, but could someone tell me if there is a quick way to achieve a transparent background behind a simple cube. In C4D its very simple, just check the Alpha box in SAVE settings and voila, done... When using octane, i just cannot seem to figure it out. Thanks y'all and Happy New year!

    How to reduce aliasing

    ok thanks, ill give it a shot and see how that works but if anyone wants to tryu themselves... just make a 1 cm line\cube and render it... its never solid.. always blurred darker and\ or brighter lines on either side. I just cant seem to get a SOLID 1 cm line. Edit: ok Understood... unfortunately I also have to animate the UI's in some cases so altho i can use PS to composite for stills, not possible for animation. Using the sharpening tools in AFX is a great suggestion too... cheers Thanks for your help.!

    How to reduce aliasing

    I guess Cubic - Still Image.. i suppose that's default... never changed it... seemed appropriate.
  14. I design interfaces for audio plugins and I am trying to pin down how to render more precise lines in Cinema.. For example in Photoshop... when you draw a 1 Px line.... its width is 1 Px..... In C4D there is always some aliasing\blurring of every line, every edge.. no matter how high i set the quality settings. Is there a way to render more precise\clear lines and edges in C4D? TIA!
  15. Just realized that Jeff had given this solution in text above.. It scared me off to be honest, bu i ended up finding the video I posted of the same thing and it made it much less intimidating to accomplish.. Thanks jeff!
