  1. First frame of my soft body dynamics i get this. 3079_vumetermograph.c4d
  2. I seem to get lines through my UV. The lines seem to change when I rotate it too.
  3. Hey Guys, I was wondering why the mesh checker wasn't picking up on this modeling error. I have an N-gon here, correct? Anyways, I was wondering how reliable the mesh checker is. Thanks, Spencer
  4. Thanks. Working on it. Making progress. Two problems though. One, I cannot get the points to connect properly where the symmetry meet each other. Even with the anable axis tool, it doesn't seem to connect properly. Also, my subdivision is messed up at the end of the symmetry. Pictures provided below.
  5. Hey everybody, I'm trying to model some headphones, and thought SDS would be the way to go. First time using SDS modeling, and I'm having a lot of trouble with the top part of the headset, and the part of the headset that separates from one shape into two different paths (shown in the first picture). Any tips, videos or anything of the sort would be appreciated. Thanks, Spencer
  6. Ok. What's the best way to go about it? Copying and pasting the models into separate files. I can't upload the full file because of the file size limit, correct?
  7. From what you're saying I can already tell my scene is a mess LOL. I've really just been bullshitting my way through the scene. I'm definitely interested in a Skype session and will PM you shortly. Can't wait to topologize some girl's butts .
  8. Ok. That's pretty much why I wanted to model everything in my room. To practice and learn from my mistakes because I too agree that experience is the best way to learn. Thanks for the response.
  9. Hey yall, So I've taken on the task of trying to model everything in my room to sharpen my C4D skills. Right now I'm in the modeling phase of everything. I feel like I'm good with spline modeling, and modeling things out of shapes using the extrude tools, bevel, etc... However, I look around my room, and can't seem to fathom how to model some of the stuff, such as an xbox controller. As a self-taught person, it can be hard to find the right resources sometimes, and it can be hard to understand C4D's capabilities. My question for everybody is what other modeling techniques are impor
  10. Ok. So when I try and copy and past to a new scene, the object doesn't show up. I don't know why. But, soft interporlation is when it has the bezier curve handles on it. As shown below.
  11. Hey all, I'm trying to create smooth edges between the points on a sweeped spline, but can't seem to get it. I've tried subdivision surface, and also smoothin interpolating the points, but can't seem to get it right. Below you can see the chair I'm trying to model, and a picture of my CInema4D scene. Thanks, Spencer
  12. Yeah. Honestly, Ill probably try to model this a different way. Was just curious on this subject. Thanks.
  13. Hello, I am trying to subtract some cubes from an extruded plane. However, my object seems to compleely disappear. It comes back as the voxel size is lowered, but I cannot get enough detail before it gets too low and starts to take a lot of time to render. Is there a work around to this, or am I doing something wrong? Thanks, Spencer Xbox model.c4d
  14. Hello, I am trying to extrude this piece of this editable cube, and it is extruding at a very small angle for some reason. I've tried re-doing the entire thing, and it always seems to extrude at an angle at this one part only. Thanks, Spencer
  15. Great. Thanks so much. Is there a section on this forum where I can post my work for critiques?
  16. Hey yall, I'm looking for some good books to read to further my skills as an artist, and was wondering what you guys have read and would recommend. It can be anything from 3D stuff to color theory. Thanks, Spencer
  17. Hey guys, Was curious for those who use Houdini, how long into your 3d career did you start to use Houdini? I've been using C4D for about a month or 2 now, and Houdini looks so cool. I know I am no where near ready to use Houdini, but I am very anxious to start learning it. I am a very technical person, and pretty good at math so I feel like Houdini would be a great fit for me. When do you think i would be ready to start learning the program? Thanks, Spencer
  18. Hey yall, So I'm trying to add points to an existing spline, but nothing seems to work. I've checked the manual but can't figure it out. Basically, I'm trying to create a square with an X in it. I want to extrude or sweep the spline eventually to make it an object. Help would be appreciated. Thanks, Spencer
  19. Hey guys, I was curious about the workflow from C4D to photoshop. How often do you use photoshop on your renders. If not, what do you do for post-production. What do you do in photoshop? I am asking these questions because I want to do some post-production, but I don't really know what tutorials to look at to do some post. Also, in what type of situation do you use after effects vs photoshop( I would assume a still render uses photoshop and sims use after effects? Looking forward to your responses. Thanks, Spencer
  20. Ok, but in the he tutorial it renders smoothly. I traced back my steps multiple times, and did everything correct. Could it be my render settings?
