  1. Hey, sorry to reply so late, I rendered the file you shared from dropbox. Physical renderer was selected by default so there were only two buckets and it took more time (00:02:07) but when I switched it to standard, it rendered in 00:01:17. Could it be that you rendered with physical on your friends iMac but switched to standard on your MBA? Thats the only valid explanation I can think of. Edit: I did both renders on R20 in the aforementioned iMac 5K
  2. That's true but the MacBook Air has a dual core 1.7GHz proc : https://support.apple.com/kb/SP683?locale=en_GB Whereas the iMac has a quad core one : https://everymac.com/systems/apple/imac/specs/imac-core-i7-3.4-27-inch-aluminum-late-2012-specs.html Also, in both cases I'm talking about physical cores and not with multithreading.
  3. Yes I think this is right because back when Yosemite was released they didn't implement metal. But then again, that's a difference in graphics and probably has nothing to do with the processor. Are the C4D versions same on both machines? Also, can you confirm if you saw 4 or 8 buckets while rendering on the iMac? I've got an iMac 5k 2015, if you don't mind, could you send the file? I'd be happy to render it here. I'm running Mojave and R20. It's a remote possibility, but maybe its file specific? Totally not sure.
  4. I see how useful it can be...thanks got your replies... appreciate the help. I guess I gotta add another thing on stuff to learn list
  5. Okay, incoming super noob question : Does using substance designer and other apps made by allegorithmic help make my textures more realistic? And do I get more functionality over the default texture editor on c4d? Please let me know if this is an inappropriate place to ask questions... I'll delete this and start a new post then. Thanks in advance.
  6. Did you try selecting Side as “both” in texture tag properties?
  7. Adding cameras to the scene can give you a whole host of features that would not be otherwise available just by the default camera, like control of optical zoom (in mm), depth of field with physical renderer, lens flares, and much more. I encourage you to see C4D documentation or the help section within the app itself. In what way do you mean higher quality? It is just a more versatile way to set up your scenes and gives you more control of whats on the screen. render output is controlled from the render settings most of the times. It could possibly provide more realism to your renders if you know how to apply it properly and use what looks best.
  8. Oh yes GI might help things as well. It should work with C4D prime because it's just a library but you can also look at images of studios that they have up on their website to see how they light their scenes, of course if you don't want to buy it. IMO, they're a set of really great lights and studios...they look amazing. You should check them out.
  9. Hey, I'm cannot access my c4d machine right now so I'm not able to see nay of the files sent here but from the original image you sent here, I would say that you're off to a great start. Using a cyc may improve reflections of light instead of an infinite plane I think you're using right now. Also, changing the camera angle to something a bit from the top might improve the look as well. Try adding a very light greenish tint to the fill light it'll give a nice accent to the image promoting the color of the object. (Do not do this if you don't want to ruin the white bg). Also, I'd suggest having a look at some gsg studios you can make one on your own but there a great source of knowledge of how to go about lighting your scene: https://greyscalegorilla.com/downloads/light-kit-pro/ You could also experiment with a reflectance on the floor depending on your needs. To end it, I'd say export a tif to PS where you can do your compositing to make it look awesome. I apologise if this wasn't extremely helpful but I just told you what I think could be improved. Maybe I'll pitch up a render once I'm home. Edit: You could also try to put the box in a particular (tilted) position as one would do in real product photography.

    Happy New Year!

  11. I tried @3DKiwi's method, worked pretty well considering it is a very simple way of doing this, I haven't tried @Fastbee's way, it does seem like a different way to do it...I don't know it seems the former is easier cause I'm just not very good with deformers :P, but that's just me...gonna try it though once I'm at my workstation.
  12. Yes, it is interesting I just realized that checking it out myself in C4D. I have a question about the file you sent here, how did you manage to do these extrudes and they show up in the object manager? Also what modeling tools did you use specifically, the plane knife and bevel and extrude or what? :)
  13. There are multiple ways to do this. The easiest and most common way of doing this is using a text spline with extrude and in the spline settings, change the 'cap' and add fillet cap to the from part with low sub-division maybe with a concave setting. There are multiple tutorials even in YouTube I think, you can see those.
  14. Thank you for your replies @Fastbee and @natevplas I totally appreciate the criticism thank you for being so honest :). This is really interesting...gotta try it out. My actual plan was to use an individual camera, up top but i thought it wouldn't be enough to make a fully 360 sphere of video...I'm not really a pro at this ...on a serious note, now that I think about it this does look very silly now...but I really thank you for your honesty, because whoever I asked about this said...it looks great...they probably thought I'm a kid...that sorta doesn't help anyway. I'm probably gonna revisit this project and revamp it fully...probably change it fully... Thank again for you input!
  15. These are some Concept renders for a drone that shoots 360 video for VR and if a first of it's kind. I created these a while ago but haven't really received truthful feedback and TBH, I haven't been asking for it. There also this small video I made for showcasing the product. I know these are pretty crude right now...but any constructive criticism is welcome so that next time I can take my drone game to the next level! Thank you in advance.
