  1. C4D R20 - what do you guys expect?

    Fair enough, thanks for reporting the issue Dan.
  2. Struggling with Motion Tracker

    The constraints are only to scale and orient your already 3D solved scene, they wouldn't be affecting the quality of the solve and match-moving. I'd say if it can't solve it, it might need a bit more work... It's rainy there and reflective surfaces aren't good for tracking since they are changing as the camera angle is changing. You would need to avoid reflective surfaces (mask them out), and try to have more quality 2D tracks until you can get a good solve. Maybe undistorting the footage can also help, depending on how much the lens distortion is from the iphone's camera.
  3. C4D R20 - what do you guys expect?

    Hey Dan, can you share scenes that exhibit the problem? Have you reported these to MAXON? Providing examples about the problems can go a long way towards getting them fixed: https://www.MAXON.net/en/support/how-can-we-help/
  4. Fantastic work, that's really a great likeliness model. It captures the personality of the character with great accuracy. I will disagree with most here though, I think the hair is the weakest part of the rendition. They look too soft to me, especially on the beard, as if the hair strands are too thin and too many. In the actual character they look more scruffy and rigid I think (open in new window to see full resolution): That isn't to say that there hasn't been an amazing job already. Thanks for the breakdown as well!
  5. Blackmagic Fusion contest

    Hi all, my buddy and ex-coworker Vito LaManna started making tutorials for Blackmagic Fusion (ex. Eyeon Fusion) recently. He's a great 2D/3D artist, and the high-end knowledge that he shares, especially in the Le Buck's Ring tutorial, is quite rare to find in the tutorial scene. For those who don't know Fusion, it is a nodal compositor similar to Nuke. It's quite powerful for 3D workflows, and the Free version is good enough for many single-seat freelancers, supporting up to UHD resolutions. Long story short, there is a running competition with prizes from Blackmagic: The rules are to follow Vito's Lightbulb tutorial using your own 3D design, and using the free version of Fusion. The tutorial will be released in a few days, but it's already available for his Patreon supporters. It runs until February 8th. I think Fusion makes a good combination with C4D, so feel free to try your luck, learn some nodal compositing and maybe win a prize on the way.
