  1. Switching cameras in the OBJECTS panel, I attached a PNG above to show which one, thanks. I'll check other panels to see if something is locked...
  2. Thanks for the feedback. Uploading file is not feasible with this client, but I appreciate your willingness to look it over! I think I'll delete these two cameras and see if the problem persists.
  3. Hi, In the Object Manager panel I have two cameras. I can usually switch between the cameras when working by simply clicking the white box per standard procedure. Now, when I click in the white box, nothing happens. There is a protection tag on one of the cameras, but removing it does nothing. I am able to switch between cameras using the main viewer Cameras/Use Camera/ drop down menu. I've tried looking for obvious low hanging idiot fruit, but just can't suss it. Now, the other day I was chatting with a 3D coworker to see if he ever had the same issue, and with all the clicking th
  4. Hi All, I would like to know your thoughts on the best UV tool for Cinema 4D as of 2020. With R21, MAXON has improved the UV tool but perhaps third party UV tools are better and worth time investment? If anyone has R21 and also using a great third party UV tool I would be highly interested in hearing the pros and cons and a suggestion of whether to stick with C4D R21 UV tool or invest in a top tier UV tool package, such as RizonUV or Substance. Thank you.
  5. THANK YOU DAN!! wow, not only answered but posted a detailed YouTube video, what a hero.
  6. Cineversity.com does have some free tutorials tucked in with the locked videos. Does anyone have experience or knowledge of how to determine which tutorials are free without login? Many videos are locked and the random clicking is growing tiresome. I tried looking for an FAQ on Cineversity and also looked around for a menu or filter that would list only the free videos, but with no luck. Maybe I'm missing something simple here. For the past few months I have been just randomly clicking on links to see if I get lucky. FYI, I'm not referring to the free-period just recently where MAXON gave 30 d
  7. Personally, I intend to avoid C4D subscription as long as possible and at all cost. Fingers crossed MAXON will continue to sell perpetual upgrades for a few more versions and I can jump off with my perpetual hopefully on something like R24 before the sub dives under the water. I also imagine droves of C4D perpetual users will be purchasing that final perpetual upgrade like mad. I could foresee myself far into the future subscribing for a year if I landed a large project and could pass on the cost of the annual sub to the client. For small bread and butter projects, in a subscription only
  8. EJ has mentioned this on YouTube, so it appears R22 is coming
  9. I so hope you are right and we have R22. I think many people are nervous after Adobe went subscription only and not to mention the sub prices on other comparable 3D packages, which can be absolutely insane. Just a whiff of the idea of being held hostage by subscription gets my attention these days.
  10. This is extremely well worded and precisely my thoughts as well. David Davis
  11. EXACTLY! This has had me scratching my head as well. For those who just paid retail for, say R21, the retail price could be roughly 3500.00 USD. This is serious money obviously. So just a couple of years after their purchase one has to get on a subscription path which translates into always paying, never achieving a flat rate price upgrade. Let me be clear that I fully support MAXON and Cinema 4D and appreciate the small market they serve and realize they need revenue to continue to develop and evolve their product, but I am left questioning what exactly is happening here. I absolutely welcome
  12. Hi all, What do C4D users think of MAXON's subscription-only upgrade path now that S22 is out? When I purchased R20 via Toolfarm, my receipt specifically stated I would have access to Cinversity, could not get logged in, then I contacted MAXON and was told I had no access as its now only sub access. I also wonder about the impression of someone buying R20 with "perpetual license" upgrade path in their head. At that time I bought R20 assuming it meant I could upgrade with the same flat fee purchase mechanism. In my opinion, switching to subscription only upgrade is a bit of a "gotcha". I
  13. Thanks for this tip, I did not know about this. I might have solved the issue. I suspected perhaps one of the panels, maybe a view port or the like, was causing the lag. In my three-monitor custom C4D layout, I closed one panel at a time clicking buttons and testing the navigation between each closure, to see if closing a panel sped things up. Much to my surprise this troubleshooting worked! When I closed (the undocked) Redshift Asset Manager panel, everything went back to fluid, normal speed. I closed the file and repeated the test, each time having RS asset manager open made the intera
  14. Hello, Thanks in advance to any suggestions here. I'm running C4D R20 across three Dell Ultra LED monitors at 2550x1450 (all same model) with the latest Nvidia drivers on Windows 10 Pro with latest updates. This is stable system everything works fine. I began noticing on larger scene files C4D is laggy with the interface. Navigating, such as zoom, scroll pan, was lagging with around a 1 second delay between being able to switch from zoom, to pan. The same interface lag with turning objects on or off or selecting objects in the object panel, a split second lag between being able to click
