  1. This is the first draft of an album cover I'm working on. I'm reasonably happy with it, but there are definitely a few issues. The neon looks really fake to me. Something with the reflections on the outer glass I think. The scene is lit with an HDRI and a couple other lights. Also wondering why I'm not getting more of a pink glow on the wall. Any other help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. TIA.
  2. Sweep Nurb Problem

    Thanks guys. I played with the shape of the curve and got something to work.
  3. Sweep Nurb Problem

    Is there anyway around fixing this pinching on a sweep nurbs other than making the sweep object (circle) smaller in diameter? I'm making some neon sign lettering and I don't want the letters to be really skinny.
  4. Wrapping Beer Cans in Plastic

    Yeah, I think that's what I'm going to do. Thought it might be fun and easy to use some kind of deformer but it's just a headache.
  5. Hey guys, I have a client who just needs me to take a few beer cans and make them look like they are shrink wrapped in plastic (like the attached). I figured this would be really easy but I can't seem to get it to look right. I've tried using the shrink wrap deformer and the collision deformer. Anybody have a tip that might help me out?
  6. Cutting out projected spline

    My head is spinning, lol... I think that makes sense though. I'll give it a try! Thanks!
  7. Cutting out projected spline

    Yeah the booles are dragging my system really badly. I'm actually trying to use a material as we speak. Nothing about that is proving to be easy either. I guess I'm going to try an unwrap the sphere and then place the puzzle pieces in Photoshop, and then use the map in my transparency channel. So far I'm still having some problems. To make matters even more interesting, the sphere, which is actually a light bulb, is transparent :)
  8. Cutting out projected spline

    Yeah, ugh... I'm modeling jigsaw puzzle pieces onto the surface of a sphere. I don't think I have the surface modeling skills to do that without a boole.
  9. Is there a way to take a spline and project it onto a curved surface, and then have the curved surface be transparent or "cut out" where the spline is? I trying to do this without an extruded spline and a boole, which is how I've been doing it.
  10. Weird shadows from area lights

    My scene file is to large to attach. How do I get around that?
  11. Weird shadows from area lights

    Scene attached...
  12. I always seem to get these weird shadows on my backgrounds that I think are caused by area lights. I tired a bunch of stuff with compositing tags to get rid of them but no luck. Anybody know how to fix this?
  13. What the...? Missing Axis.

    Well, I just found it. There is an "Axes Scale" in viewport configure and it was set to 0%. No clue how that happened. Good to know though if this every happens to you :)
  14. I start up C4D today and no matter what I do, there is no gizmos on the axis on any of my objects. It's not alt +D. I've tried that 50 times. What happened here?
  15. NES Controller, any advice?

    Awesome. Thanks for the help guys.
