  1. MikeA, I have my C4D file layer at the bottom of the stack, as my base layer. If I understand correctly, you render each pass separately in C4D , then you import them separately in AE. Is this correct? What is the advantages of doing this? I doesn't seem faster to me. Thanks.
  2. I have imported a C4D file in AE. The file has got multi-pass settings for Object Buffer, Shadow and AO. The Object Buffer layer in AE works well in getting rid of the floor, but when I add a Shadow and AO layer on top, the floor reappears. What am I doing wrong? I uploaded both files so you can take a look at it. Thanks in advance. Table.aep Table.c4d
  3. I have rigged a simple character. When I use the Ankle Goal to move the leg (I need to simulate walking), the leg moves to the side, not in front. How can I change that? Rigging_Test.c4d
  4. I added some segments to the tube and it did the work. What is a non-manifold edges?
  5. How would you get rid of these edges, which are affecting the roundness of the ring? Thanks Ring Geometry.c4d
  6. Can you please end your file so I can have a look at it? Thanks.
  7. Thanks CBR. What do you mean by "Selected Points, Edges, Polys and N-gons showing in the HUD" ? Where do you run on Mesh checker?
  8. I'm not bad at modelling but I'm kind of stuck here. In need to model this fan with rounded edges. I started from a tube and I extruded the straight part out. The straight part has got nice rounded edges, but the cylindrical part has got hard edges. How would you model this to get nice rounded edges all around? Fan.c4d
  9. Thanks. I did ask GSG and waiting for reply.
  10. I purchased a kit from Greyscalegorilla. I'm using one of their studios for my scene. I'm saving the final project with assets and sending it to a render farm. The render farm is telling me that all the assets from that studio (textures) are missing. However, the are not missing in my scene and I can render without any problem here. For some reason, those assets are not being saved. Any idea why? Thanks.
  11. Thanks guys. I just sent my bid. waiting for a decision. BTW, it's a 4-5 minute video, which means it should be approximately 3 minutes of actual animation. Thanks.
  12. Thank you for all this useful information. To me, C4D's Physical renderer works fine. All I do is animations, so its slowness can be a problem. One thing I will do though is get a faster machine. I work on Macs because I also do graphic design and it' just more practical. I don't want to work on two platforms so I stick to Macs. In the mean time, I only do the final render with Physical and I often simply send it to a farm. I just don't want to miss out on anything. I often need to make things look real and very sharp so I'm just wondering if this can be easier and better with other renderers. It just blows my mind that the best renderer is not C4D's native. It's like buying a Mercedes and having to buy another manufacturer's engine to put in it. This is something I don't get.
  13. Thanks CBR, very informative. It is true that the Physical renderer is pretty good but damn slow. How do you know if your machine can handle GPU renderer? I'm working on an iMac. Thanks
  14. I'm currently bidding on a project. It's a 4 to 5 minute video mostly consisting of 3D animations. There's no character, it's mostly very technical. I'm looking for a backup C4D artist to do part of it, just in case I need it. I need someone that can turn around pretty quickly and won't cost me my shirt. The project would consist on modeling, texturing and animating the device. It's a high-tech device so it would need some interesting effects. How do I find the best person for this job? How do I make sure that person is qualified?
