  1. Will this build work?

    Hi, When building or buying a new PC, I like to compare it with what some companies provide. Puget Systems has several different solutions you can modify. They don't use all the same parts, but you might find it helpful as a guideline. For example, this is their solution for Octane rendering which utilizes two 1080 Ti cards https://www.pugetsystems.com/recommended/Recommended-Systems-for-OTOY-OctaneRender-192/Buy_217 They also have two Cinema 4D solutions, one for rendering and the other for modeling and animation. https://www.pugetsystems.com/recommended/Recommended-Systems-for-Cinema-4D-166 Again, I'm not promoting their systems, although I'm very satisfied with the build I purchased from them several years ago, but thought the information might help or guide you with your build.

    So does this mean if I purchased the R19 upgrade back in May, I've lost out on the savings?
  3. X Particles Chase Object

    I haven't had time to test this out, but have you tried using the attractor and flocker modifiers? This little tutorial might get you started. https://www.linkedin.com/learning/x-particles-3-for-cinema-4d-essential-training/using-the-attractor-to-make-particles-attract
  4. I have 5 edges coming together at one point, which creates a star. It looks okay I guess, but I was wondering if there is something I can do to eliminate this. Everything I try just creates the "star' in a different location. The image shows what it looks like before and after subdivision.
  5. Thanks guys!! I didn't realize that would work, but it does perfectly! Thanks much. Vozzz, that's the exact monitor I picked up a week ago. I really like it. It's not much for playing FPS games but, it's great for working in C4d. Especially, for tired eyes.
  6. I just purchased a large monitor and every time I open C4D, it opens to the monitor's full screen size. I then have to resize the C4D window to something I like better every time I open C4d. I'm using Windows 7 and I checked the shortcut properties. Even though the property for Run is set to Normal Window, it still opens Maximized. I'm guessing that is just how C4d is programmed. Does anyone have any ideas for retaining the window size other than what I've tried? Note: I'm not talking about the windows within C4d that can be saved as a configuration, I'm referring to the main C4d application itself. Thanks
  7. Best computer for C4D

    Hi RichMed, I've been doing a lot of research on this very topic lately and what I've found out is that C4D is primarily single threaded CPU based for Modeling and Animation, which means you want high MHz. While rendering is multi-threaded multi-core based, so you want a lot of cores. And if you use Render Pro or a third party render plugin like RedShift or Octane, then you'll want Nvidia cards to utilize the GPU for rendering. The bad part is, if you're not doing GPU rendering and you want a general machine for both modeling and rendering, the more cores your CPU has, the lower the MHz. I can't help you with Apple products because I'm a PC guy. I'm also not advertising for Puget Systems, but this link shows you the two different PC configurations for C4D they have. https://www.pugetsystems.com/recommended/Recommended-Systems-for-Cinema-4D-166. They've based these machine configurations on the 2015 Cinabench results. I did buy my current PC from them before I started using C4D and have been very happy with it. I'll probably buy my next from them as well, once I figure out the best machine for doing both modeling and rendering in C4D. Hope this info helps in your decision.
  8. C4d acting weird after new install

    I might give that a try. Thanks again Cerbera.
  9. C4d acting weird after new install

    I just opened C4D 3 times without Sophos installed and it worked fine. I also opened a browser and did a search while launching C4D and it did not lock. It would appear that Sophos is the culprit. Thanks for listening Cerbera, you'd make a good counselor. Haha
  10. C4d acting weird after new install

    I'm uninstalling Sophos now.
  11. C4d acting weird after new install

    Plugins are Cycles 4d, x-Particles, Octane, Magic Center and Magic Solo. When I had C4D installed previously I don't recall Cycles 4d, Octane and Particles all having their own menu, but they do now.
  12. C4d acting weird after new install

    There has to be something wrong with my system as well. If I open a browser and then launch C4D and go back to the browser, the browser is unresponsive until C4D opens. Something is messed up. I also recently switched Anti-virus software. I went from McAfee to Sophos. I'm beginning to wonder if this has anything to do with the weirdness
  13. C4d acting weird after new install

    Yes. R18.057
  14. C4d acting weird after new install

    Yes, absolutely!! But I understand why you would ask. It’s very strange behavior. When I reinstall I’m going to test this about 10-15 times before adding a plugin and then try again.
  15. I had to reinstall my OS, which is Windows 7. Prior to this C4d was working fine. After installing C4d R18 and various plugins, it began acting weird. Sometimes I launch C4d and I add a cube. I then use the small point handles to reduce the the height of the cube, as it should. But if I close C4d and relaunch it, I add a cube and the little point handles don’t work. When I try To slide the points the whole cube moves. One time after relaunching, it rotated the cube when I tried to use the point handle. All this while using the live select tool. When it’s in weird mode it won’t allow me to select points, polys or edges of existing models even thought they’ve been made editable. Is this behavior familiar to anyone? I’m planning on uninstalling and reinstalling tomorrow. Is there another way? It says I have all the updates. Thanks
