    content

    IS there somewhere with a list of what content should be included in studio vR18 as I have been looking through my content browser and doesnt seem to be much there. Studio folder > 3d objects has a small handful of items - 2 humans, 6 architectural elements, 2 outdoor objcts a brick and a wall. 10 light setups. 7 categories of materials but only 2 or 3 in each one, some thinking particles setups and some example setups. And thats it.

    render looks bad

    Ive followed this tut but for some reason my render looks absolutely . Im not getting any of those nice reflections and highlights in the water. Mine looks a mess. Could somebody please take a look at the file attached and advise where Im going wrong. I thought I was following it to the letter but something isn't right. Ive tried moving the camera and lighting around but still no good. Also I have noticed in the picture viewer that the quality of the picture look bad with jagged edges etc. Is that normal or is there a setting. Also attached a screen shot of picture viewer. water drops.c4d

    raindrops displacement

    I did do what he said and increased the geometry the same as the video but until I checked 'sub poly displacement' it didn't work

    raindrops displacement

    I am using the picture viewer. I had to check sub polygon displacement. Not sure what that is but works once its checked.

    Blend clones

    Hi, I have attached two files below in which I have some numbers inside a clone using object mode and blend clones is selected. In the first example you will see the clones dont blend but in the second example they do. The settings are exactly the same so I dont understand why this is happening. Anyone have any idea why? Im using R18. Some versions the blend doesnt work with numbers but it does with R18. cloneblend1.c4d cloneblend2.c4d

    Number countdown or up

    Thank you for replies. The random effector modify clone is an easy option for now. Although the numbers go up and down depending where they start from but thats ok as I'm only doing a tut. Cheers

    Hi Jed, thanks for the reply. Im using R18. It does have xpresso its just that in the video he says that if you have a version in which the blend mode changes the numbers that you dont need to use it so I was confused by this. I wanted to know how to animate them in this case but sounds like you're saying he is incorrect?

    Number countdown or up

    I have been following a motion squared tut see link below. At about 21:20 he animates the numbers. Im using R18 and so when I use the blend mode of the clone my numbers blend but I dont know how to animate them so that they count up. In the video he is using some other version and his numbers dont blend in the clone so he does it with xpresso and user data. However he mentions that if you have a version that blends then you dont need xpresso to do it but then fails to explain how. Can someone please have a look at my file attached and show me how to make the numbers animate as in the video. Thank you kindly. Number count.c4d
