  1. Maybe the objects do not have a frozen transformation. Make sure scale is (1,1,1)
  2. Check the Export Settings of C4D and Import Settings of Maya. There's usually a "unit" parameter/field in them.
  3. Hard to swallow pill. C4D UV workflow is counter productive. Use Blender for the UV mapping. Should cover most of your needs. If you need more features such as tight and clean packing of UV's (very important in games), use RizomUV as @DasFrodo.
  4. @phildoooo RE: cant work out how to paste the whole code her Uhm. Just copy and paste it? There's also a code icon in the post panel UI that allows you to format the code. RE: go through the list naming in hierarchy Luckily for you, there is already an existing resource for down. This should cover majority of what you need. https://www.curiousanimal.tv/blog/c4d-python-snippet-navigating-hierarchy/ Also. "Python. Hi Am New" is not a helpful title. Please rename it. Good luck.
  5. I have no concrete input but I share the sentiment on this: "I feel a bit stupid as the math just does not add up. " "There is no way I would ever give up my perpetual license that's for sure for 2-3 hundred in savings. " Yea, I mean I don't get what MAXON was trying to achieve. But when I did the math, there is no way the offered discount adds up to your perpetual license. It's been awhile now, but it doesn't even amount to 30% of total payment for perpetual license, correct me if I'm wrong. It's offending. It's obscene. Especially when I bought my own personal copy just last year. In addition, I don't get what's the problem of just having them run side by side (i.e. continuing perpetual up to R22, R23, R24 and the subscription). Same way Houdini and Substance are doing. Anyway, thinking all about it now makes me frustrated.
  6. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think the MyMaxon site has a "release license" feature.
  7. Nice! Browsed the forums and the results are really great.
  8. Since it is somewhat confirmed that it is an R20+ bug, it might be better off to send it to the technical support team. Hoping for the best.
  9. Hi, Somewhat a rant, but wondering if anyone is having the same problem. I really find it cumbersome when I ask the support of certain feature or a problem and they say it isn't available. Better make a request for it. Why can't they forward the message to the request/support team? Like any other good support system. I have to create another "ticket" just for the request, which takes some time since I have to retype my credentials because it is not saved on the site. See reference here https://www.c4dcafe.com/ipb/forums/topic/107382-merging-support-and-mymaxon-site/ In addition, another small detail is when they respond to your query, they do not include your initial message. So you have to keep tabs on your initial messages just so you can refer them in the succeeding conversation. Is it really that hard to attach the initial message on your email? Like any other good support system.
  10. I take it back. I just had a look at it. Indeed, there is a priority issue. Unfortunately, it would be an enormous task figuring how to fix the priority since its already a complicated rig. Fortunately, we have @BretBays here, who I believe worked on the creation Character Builder/Object, correct me if I'm wrong.
  11. I have worked with the Bendy Arm/Leg form the Built-in Character Builder. I haven't had any priority problems. Can you send a sample file for inspection?
  12. @Rectro Sorry for the late response. Was a away for holiday. @Wilsonator I worked with the regular Maya (i..e full version) and not with Maya LT or the Indie (correct me if I'm wrong but the Indie is limited only to specific countries. It's not available in mine). All I know about the difference is the Maya LT does not contain any advance features (i.e. no FX toolset, no C++/python plug-ins, no advanced deformers (i.e. delta mush) ) . Personally a deal breaker for me is the no C++/Python Plug-ins/Environment. You only have to use the built-in MEL. Anyhow, yes Maya has an edge for the animation and rigging tool set. After all, it is first and foremost an animation and rigging software. That said, the main factor whether to choose Maya vs C4D for animation is mostly for pipeline for purposes (i.e. if your colleagues are already in Maya, then use Maya). The logic is it's much more cheaper to buy software than retraining artists. In terms of capability, for beginner and medium rigging/animation tasks. I'm indifferent between C4D and Maya. Both can do the job well. For advanced tasks, Maya easily shines. Don't worry about it. You need roughly 1-2 years of rigging experience before you concern yourself with advance features
  13. RE: What kind of concatenation? Oh. It's because when I performed the op[paramid] beforehand, it gives me an error of AttributeError: Parameter value not accessible (object unknown in Python) So I was thinking of concatenating to op[c4d.ID_BASEOBJECT_REL_POSITION] from op + "[c4d." + bc[c4d.DESC_IDENT] + "]" to get the values. I'm not sure if I'm making any sense lol.
  14. @MighT Thanks for the response! Your code works as expected. The missing link I was looking for was the ".id" part. Yea, the BaseContainer/DescLevel/DescID etc is a bit confusing. I really hope there was a graphical presentation in the documentation. For instance, I took me a while to realize that base container can contain other base containers too. My main purpose is just to store and restore values. Thanks again and have a great day ahead. P.S. Based on your profile, I think you were previously an SDK specialist or something and moved to another job. Hope you are having a good time. Thanks for all the posts you did in the old forum. I find some nuggets there every now and then.
  15. Hi I can iterate the parameters and their ID using this code from the documentation: import c4d def main(): if op is None: return description = op.GetDescription(c4d.DESCFLAGS_DESC_NONE) # Get the description of the active object for bc, paramid, groupid in description: # Iterate over the parameters of the description print bc[c4d.DESC_NAME] # Print the current parameter name print bc[c4d.DESC_IDENT] # Resource identifier, e.g. ‘ID_BASEOBJECT_REL_POSITION’. if __name__=='__main__': main() 1) Is there a more direct way of accessing the values like c4d.Values and be done with it? With the code above, I'd have to perform some concatenation such as op["c4d." + bc[c4d.DESC_IDENT]] or something like that. 2) The above doesn't' work with custom user datas as the c4d_DESC_IDENT is zero. Thank you for looking at my problem I think I have asked this question but I just can't seem to retrieve the thread. Sorry about that. Lol
