  1. Lego

    My Lego collection. Mostly Cinema 4D. No imported parts. I have modelled everything (but I have taken dimensions from imported LDraw parts).
  2. Private Animation Tutor Requested: Newbi

    I would just pay someone to rig it up for you. Couple of hour job at most.
  3. Private Animation Tutor Requested: Newbi

    So these were no use? As for your model not lining up, the trick is to get it set up then drop the assembly under a parent null. You then orientate the null however you want. Sorry I do not have the time to be able to help you out any further apart from referring you to my 2 tutorials.
  4. robot_Frog_branch_03_dof.jpg

    Wow, love it. Well done :)
  5. C4D R20 - what do you guys expect?

    The new and much quicker core. On screen playback will be fast. Nodes everything including materials. Updated Xpresso / node system. UV toolset essentially rewritten. A new particle system to replace Thinking Particles. If it doesn't come in R20 it will come later. More modelling tool enhancements to take advantage of the rewritten modelling core.
  6. Personally I would have tested it on what I own and the R19 demo. If it has problems with either then I know something is wrong.
  7. Hardly surprising you're having problems if you're using illegal versions of C4D. If you are using a legally acquired version then why not do a support ticket with MAXON? 8 GB of memory is pretty low by today's standards BTW. Won't help your problem but C4D will problem go better with 16gb or more.
  8. Studio MSA Price Increase

    Sort of signals that R20 is going to be a big release. And because it's going to be big they assume they can get away with a price increase as you'll all be blown away with the improvements. Modo that I use costs US $399 per year for its equivalent maintenance system so neither are cheap. Fun times ahead.
  9. Affinity Photo The New Photoshop?

    I've gone back to Photoplus 6. Sure Affinity Photo can do some clever things but a lot of the time I just want to do some basic editing of photos and the previous program is easier to work with.
  10. Happy New 2018 & 50000 members mark!!

    New Year's day here already in New Zealand. Happy New Year to all the cafe members :) Re 50,000 members. I actually used to delete inactive members and had a modification that deleted anyone that hadn't visited the cafe in the previous 12 months if they had no forum posts. Reason being is having a large membership slows the server down and the database is much larger and can make taking database backups problematic. Had I not done this the cafe would in fact be showing over 220,000 members (Just hover over the name of a new member to see their member number). But anyway well done. It's great to see the cafe still going strong. I think 2018 is going to be an interesting year for C4D users. Hopefully R20 is the big one with the new core and I'm predicting it will be. Cheers Nigel / 3DKiwi
  11. MODERNIZING AND MOVING FORWARD R20

    Sort of confirms R20 is the one we've been waiting for. I recall from my Beta testing days that COFFEE's days were numbered. I'm surprised they didn't drop it before now. I guess because it still worked and didn't need any upkeep they kept it in.
  12. How Does Autodesk Cinema 4D Sound?

    Very unlikely. The MAXON Blog was introduced after the mediocre R17 to buy MAXON some time until R18 and just beyond. It has served its purpose. I expect R20 to be a significant upgrade i.e. the fast new core, new UV tools, XPresso 2, material node system etc.
  13. Newbie UV problem

    Location Moscow. Chances the user is running an illegal version of C4D are about 99%.
  14. Is there a practical use of splines?

    Extruded, swept and lofted splines have their place but for some things traditional modelling methods are best. Extruded text being an obvious example. Plus animating of course where the depth is animated. Pretty some of my modelling tutorials here at cafe show spline modelling. Worth a look (if you can find them as the tutorial section seems hard to get to these days).
  15. Modelling

    This is the sort of thing that's best done in a CAD modeller or Nurbs modeller. That said Modo's Mesh Fusion could also do it. Modelling it Sub D while possible would take a very high skill level.
