  1. Not sure I've removed anything recently. I do occasionally remove a product when it becomes too old for current versions of C4D, but that's usually a good 5 years or so in most cases. What was the general content of the video? my youtube videos tend to deal with more specific topics like that. Maybe it was this one?
  2. The code will only work with my own 3D fluff videos for now, im afraid I can't extend the offer to other creators' videos. Might be worth getting in contact with Luxx directly and asking if they have any offers on.
  3. 20 years ago I started out with Cinema 4D, a few years later I would found 3D Fluff with Janine Pauke so that we could start producing training videos, that makes it some 16 or so years of teaching Cinema 4D either in person or through our many free and paid tutorials. Well, the time has come for a bit of a change. 3D Fluff won't be going anywhere but new videos will be on hold for the foreseeable future as I concentrate on my new motion graphics artist role at BoxFX. I would like to say that I would be making some new content in my spare time but I suspect that will be taken up with planning a wedding for next year! So for a bit of a blow out sale, I have decided to make all of the 3D Fluff video content 80% off for the next few weeks. Just enter the code "congrats" when prompted for a voucher code. https://www.3dfluff.com/video/ I will probably be back at some point in the future and will still reply to emails when I have time, but for now, I hope you have all enjoyed our videos and I thank you all for your time and support over the years.

  5. You can get started with the basic idea here:
  6. Over the years I've been approached by quite a few companies to produce Cinema 4D training videos and so far I have generally resisted, preferring to make videos under my own 3D Fluff brand instead. Well, today you will find a first from me, I'm happy to announce a new video produced in conjunction with Greyscalegorilla. 11 hours of R20 content on how to use the hottest new features in R20. https://greyscalegorilla.com/downloads/guide-to-c4d-r20-training/
  7. So just for future reference, you're saying there is a bios setting which disables pcie power?
  8. Im no expert, but it looks like you're running it at pcie 1.1 instead of 3.0. Which would equate to lower bandwidth. Check if there is a new bios or motherboard drivers available. If you go into device manager, are there any ! entries for unknown drivers?
  9. I don't give a about mac or pc so my advice is purely from the view of what hardware is currently available. At this point in time, the mac desktop isnt in a great place. The mac pro is 5 years old at this point. Same old motherboard, same old gpu, same old cpu, same memory limits, same cpu choices. To call it neglected would be a gross understatement. There is a new model slated for 2019 but im not holding my breath. The only mac really worth considering at this point would be the imac pro, however with a decent spec (14 cores, 64 gigs, vega 64) it will run you £6000-7000. Which for a system that isn't user upgradable or serviceable... well enjoy your expensive paper weight a few years down the line. PC-wise, you can have a 16 core cpu, 64 gigs, 1TB SSD, geforce 1080 for £2700. Throw on whatever monitor you like and you have a machine with better performance for less than half the price. Add an extra £800 and you can double the performance with a 32core cpu.
  10. Good point actually, you do have the 8 pin power connector plugged into the card right ? (top left corner in the picture you sent us) This will be a black or black and yellow set of cables. Your old NVS 300 didn't need an extra power cable. ie. one of these puppies.
  11. If light has a falloff then yes it depends on the scene size. ie. a 100 watt light bulb might illuminate a room nicely, but if you put that bulb in a dolls house everything will bleach out. One bit of advice for anyone working on smaller scale scenes (products, bottles, phones etc). In your project settings, change the first scale setting from cm to mm. This will cause all default objects and scene elements to be 10x smaller.
  12. The card looks legit, I wouldn't worry about the turbo version or not, it likely uses the same board and just has fan/bios differences, plus the real difference is virtually nothing. At this point I would suggest running a driver cleaner on your system to make sure theyre starting from scratch. Possibly the 1060 doesn't like the old Quadro drivers lingering around. Run this: https://www.wagnardsoft.com/ Then run a full official driver release install. Make sure you pick the right windows version https://www.nvidia.co.uk/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-uk
  13. If youre gpu rendering, I would skip threadripper. It is a great cpu but its power will go untapped unless you cpu render, plus it isn't the fastest single thread chip. An intel 8700k or 8086k would be quite a bit faster, clocking in over 200 CB for single threaded tasks. These chips will hit 4.7 and 5ghz without overclocking.
  14. What cpu are you using with it? Either you're trying to use a new gpu with some ancient system or one possibility is that the card is a fake. Some people out there take old cards (780, 680 etc) flash them with a fake firmware and sell them on. If you post a clean photo of the back of the gpu card we might be able to identify it.
  15. I'll just say 2 things. First the negative. 2 days for that model of a fork is incredibly slow overall. I would expect to have that mode you have there completed within an hour or two. It looks to be a fairly straightforward box/sds modelling task. But now the positive. Lots of companies have no idea how long this work takes or what to pay for it ;-) If you can find someone to pay you £200 per item, go for it. As for £500 a day. You're not generally going to find many jobs paying that high for this sort of work. Unfortunately its all too easy to ship off the task to another country and get the models knocked out for a fraction of the price. I could go online right now and get all main 3 cutler items modelled up for £50 and delivered before the end of the day. £500 a day modelling jobs are high end for difficult bespoke objects.
