  1. Thanks but am specifically referring to Redshift area lights.
  2. Hi, Is there a way of changing the colour of an area lights shadow, but not the actual light colour? I can't see an option ... Thanks!
  3. Unfortunately not as the cloned Formula effector is not driven by any keyframes.
  4. Hi, I have a set up where I am cloning geometry effected by a formula effector. Is there any way of 'offsetting' the animation of the clones? The animation is not driven by keyframes so the usual methods don't seem to work. Any ideas would be great, Thanks!
  5. Thanks - I have experimented with this but wondered if there was a faster 'cabled' solution that other users had tried successfully?
  6. Looks good but I already have mouse / keyboard set up via a USB switch
  7. Thanks for the advice - finally managed to get my keyboard / Wacom set up shared between the two via USB switch! Now just need to find the best way of having files accessible on both ...
  8. Hi, I’ve recently purchased a Windows machine to use along side my Mac Pro for C4D motion graphics work (mainly to take advantage of GPU rendering). I was wondering if anyone had any experience or tips on workflow between the two operating systems. Ideally I would like to have a cable shared hard drive between the two, allowing me to work on the same project on both machines. Any advice or tips on ‘best practice’ for this kind of workflow would be much appreciated. Thanks, Tim
  9. Hi, Can anyone recommend a method of moving a series of clones in a circular motion? I'd like to make a series of discs follow concentric circles, their motion controlled by an effector so I can use them with a tracer to draw 'trails' behind them. Something similar to the attached ... Thanks, Tim disc_circle.c4d
  10. Thanks - I've tried this but that doesn't seem to work either. Guess this is just something the native renderers in C4D can't handle.
  11. Hi, I'm trying to create a scene which uses multiple visible lights in a cloner with depth of field in the standard renderer. Does anyone know if it is possible to to get the depth of field effect to work with visible lights? Scene attached. Thanks, Tim cube_05.c4d
  12. Thanks. Attempting to hook the Field . Time Spline node to the result node (or any other node) doesn't appear to be allowed - they won't connect ...
  13. Thanks for the reply. I have tried this but am struggling to get a ‘useable’ value from the spline field (e.g. a number). Is there a node I can use to see what value is being returned? Or is that not possible for information which is spline based? Is it possible to convert this info (eg maximum height of spline) to a number? (sorry for all the questions - Xpresso novice!)
