  1. Gotcha, but what am I turning ? The red green or blue ? X Y or Z ? UPDATE: I think I got it now. Not sure I did it right, but looks OK :D Now I know how to turn textures...I was wondering how you do that, since it's not as straightforward as I thought.
  2. How do I do this ? Via the "Coordinates" tab of texture tag ? If so, which one should I "turn" ? H P or B, I can never get used these.
  3. Well now it looks how it should....how did you do it ? Since I need to do this on my own in the main project :D
  4. I shall try it today and see what it looks like. Cheers.
  5. Good day folks. I'm having a problem with a texture I'm trying to add onto a symmetry object. Let me explain in layman terms. Here's what I did: not really wanting to post the whole scene, I copied the objects in question, plus the texture I'm using on them in a new scene and posted that instead just so you can get an idea...this opens up another issue, since in the original scene I got some lights set up in such way that these objects shine brighter. I can not figure out why they come out so dark when copied in a new blank "default" project. I mean, yeah I know, DUUH, there's no
  6. Good day folks. I recently switched over to C4d 19 hoping it would run smoother and improve things, as my rig is not particularly powerful. The only thing that stands out the most is the R9 390 graphics card it's got. So far, the program itself does seem to run smoother and doesn't lag too much in the viewport, which is where I had the most issues, so I'm pleased with the overall change so far, but it's the rendering speed I'm ultimately hoping to improve. As a complete novice who's doing all this for fun, under no pressure and without any obligations, I don't usually read up or do resear
  7. I use the player that K-lite comes bundled with for day-to-day media tasks. Codec's probably the issue. Not sure if K-lite affects anything though. I got it mainly because I often need to play unusual formats that windows doesn't support natively.
  8. Neither, because the AVI files do not load at all - it says invalid file format. I got Klite codecs installed and I'm able to play every format known to man, but C4D doesn't load AVIs. Try loading any AVI file and see if it works for you.
  9. Good day folks. Wanting to benefit from my slightly more potent GPU, having a relatively slow and weak CPU, I upgraded to R19 from R15. While it does run smoother and I love it, there's one rather important issue: none of my "video" textures work anymore when I load the project I was working on...in R15 they work perfectly and I can confirm this because I have them installed side by side on the same PC. Has support been removed for these ? They're the same AVIs and the same project, so what could the issue be ? Doing it with an image sequence seems daunting and space-consuming, so I loved the
  10. Switched over to "Area" shadow just to see what happens (again, I'm a beginner at this stuff and have no idea what most of these setting do by name...practice, practice, practice...), and I haven't noticed anything "off" so far. Still looks OK and hey, no more white stuff :) It sometimes went away after disabling and re-enabling the light object itself - I just remembered that's how I tricked it into playing along. EDIT: VERY slow with area shadows - I rushed into typing the reply without waiting for the whole frame to render and I noticed it was still going...
  11. Good day folks. I just came back to a project I had been working on for a long time now, being a beginner and all and it's done now and ready to render, but I've ran into an issue, which it HAS done before but never actually found a cure: sometimes, and this is the key word here, SOMETIMES when I do a render, the scene comes out all white, like a very bright light is overtaking everything...other time it's fine. It seems to be totally random: sometimes I exit the program, launch the scene again and it's fine. Other times I have to restart the computer and it's fine, other time neither of these
  12. Ok guys, update: I installed quicktime and now upon loading an MP4 file, the frame counters do show up (they're no longer 0) but the video's still black...
  13. I'll probably go down the easy route, which is composing the video in an external editor and loading it pre-made for the sake of time, but for the sake of learning and building skills, I might come back to it at some point, no doubt about it...not really on a deadline or anything - it's just for my own personal entertainment - though it would be nice if it didn't take all year either :))
  14. Well someone suggested I'd use Xpresso and I figured I'd look into it. Didn't look too deep though, like I said. I thought perhaps it could randomly switch between a video, static (perhaps a video file also) and maybe other videos too (like the TVs changing channels), since I ASSUME it's just a matter of getting it going and then you can tell it to mess around with as many textures as possible.
