  1. You get a warning as well in Firefox
  2. Improved cloth and dynamics simulation. Liquid simulation would be nice as well. Better file import/export (e.g. FBX)
  3. Yes, but it is based on FBX as well, thus - no HD morphs - no morphs that are joint movement controlled This may not be necessary for animations, but probably for stills and close-ups. Otherwise it seems to work fine...
  4. Yes, unfortunately. @Rectro already assumed something like that. So it's not really an alternative to Vray for me.
  5. Unfortunately some great tutorials by Vertex Pusher (aka @HSrdelic) are no longer available. I learned a lot from them. There have been improvements in between with the character templates, but he really covered the basics well.
  6. Sorry, just didn't realize that it doesn't work on Mac although it is a Daz plugin. Seems that Mac doesn't get the love, they received in the past by independent developers. Apple has to push the Mac again...
  7. There is a plugin for Daz Studio, Headshop Pro 11 https://www.daz3d.com/headshop-11-win I's not free and it seems to have some bugs that will be solved with updates, but some people get some good results with it.
  8. First of all, I want some constructive discussion and not a war :) At the moment I'm using Vray 3.6, but with the transfer of Vray for C4D to Chaosgroup, I think about alternatives. I render characters (skin, hair) and mainly stills. So far I followed @Rectro tips & tricks and used the alSurface Shader in Vray for skin, which delivers quite good results out of the box. So, criteria for me are - Skin & Hair - Node based material - Integration in C4D - Maturity & future-proof - Licensing model (perpetual versus rental) I love to her about your longtime experience and your pros and cons about the render engines you use. I plan to get a new gear in 2019 and probably change the render engine latest with R21. Thanks in advance and a Happy New Year to all of you and your families.
  9. I started a document with a detailed workflow for transferring G3 to C4D, which includes the usage of Vray 3.6. Assigning materials should be done with a script, but I need to develop a reliable and flexible approach. Another long-term approach includes the transfer based on FBX, but this involves Daz Scripts and C4D Scripts/Plugins and is a more complex topic. I would definitely need more time for that, but I don't have it now. Let's see, what 2019 will bring.
  10. Ok, here is my workflow for Genesis 3/8. First I use the following export settings in Daz Studio Then I use the following C4D import settings I would advice to check Invert Transparency to get the material right by default. Nevertheless you will need to adjust them to get the right quality in Cinema 4D. I have to adjust them anyway, as I use Vray as render engine. I made a set of textures for this purpose and replace them every time after I import the OBJ. his can be automated by a script, if repeated often.
  11. You may need a Vray Blend Material. This allows to stack different vray materials.
  12. One route that works most of the time is to work with the Riptide Pro Plugin. Load the OBJ and the Vertex animation (*.mdd). You will need the mdd export for Daz Studio as well. FBX has a lot of issues, as you do not get the joint controlled morphs (JCM) and the default position of the joints over to Cinema 4D.
  13. Started with an Amiga 500 myself and aquired a 2MB memory extension plus a 20MB Harddisk. Sold everything for a 386 PC, as I needed this machine for my diploma thesis in 1990. Returned to CG with Poser again in 2003 and to Cinema 4D with R10.5 So, I assume myself as old as well :)
  14. I'm interested in a perpetual license as well, as Vray went over to a subscription model. I looked at Arnold, but I'm familiar with Vray and it may make no sense to change from one subscription to another. I search for a 3rd party render that works nicely with skin and hair and supports CPU.
