  1. Might be irreleveant but I had this issue when running the wrong TFD version with the wrong C4d version. I was running a R20 TFD on R19, it didn't see the GPU's - but still worked, just on the CPU Check the version number in the TFD Plug In folder is not higher than the C4d version
  2. Looking for help on texturing a cylinder. I have a cylinder on a spline with fillet caps, if I am using a texture based material how do I stop the 'pinching' of the texture at the end of the cylinders where the fillet cap is. I don't want to UV unwrap this at this stage as I might need to make adjustments to the cylinder or spline later, any help here appreciated Best b

    New PC

    I have used Macs since the first version of Potatoshop, kinda used to the keys - I am still keeping my MacPro too. I would like to standardise my key use and didn't realise it would be quite so painful. I also have an identical spare Mac keyboard, which I do like and am used to. Most likely I will get a PC keyboard and switch the Windows key with another, as you say i'm sure there is some functionality but if you are a Mac user not so much, it's just annoying. I put this question here in the hope that someone had made the same migration to PC from a Mac and had some work arounds...

    New PC

    I will let you know. I'm using a Mac USB keyboard and a USB Optical mouse (I daren't try my Wacom on it!) Command Z doesn't work either, if I do a Command Z all that happens is the object goes back to it's pasted position and no other undo function is performed - the same happens if I hit the back arrow in the viewport?!?!?!?
  7. Hi, Just changes from Mac to PC, got a couple of strange things happening... Command 'Z' is acting funny - I did download a key change app to swap the 'Windows' key to a "Apple/Command' key and For some reason an object that I brought into my scene file keeps defaulting to it's pasted position even if I save the c4d file with the object in the correct position, I close the file and reopen it and the position is back to it's pasted position These may our may not be PC issues and most likely carbon issues Been a frustrating few days having not had a lot to do with PC's at all...

  9. Hello. I am trying to cover a car in snow, I figure this will be some sort of particle odyssey. I was going to use a dust shader but need some geo to build up a cover of snow a few inches think Any hints or tips here appreciated...

    XP Collision Dynamics

    Thanks Cerb. The XP questions baffled me a bit and I solved this by using a cloner instead - worked a treat.
  12. Another XP questions, hopefully a simple solve Particles hit collider object but maintain angle and rotation. I have a Generator with an object (that isn't symmetrical). I'd like the particles that do collide to tumble and rotate and change angle on collision Any help appreciated
