  1. Hi there, I come from the opposite direction - started way back in VW (MiniCad6 to be exact) all the way to present VW20 and just started learning C4D. VW is a great program for drafting and has a ton of graphic friendly capabilities (I actually prefer it for some graphic tasks over Illustrator which I find so NOT intuitive). For creating architecture, it works really well - starting as a 2D plan / elevations and then using that geometry to extrude into 3D shapes. For creating / adjusting anything that has complex geometry it chokes horribly. I am an old school scenic / environmental designer who started with pencils and moved to Cad a long time ago. If you come from 2D to 3D, then VW is intuitive. If you are used to designing / building in 3D it will be a challenge. Renderworks is the reason I went to C4D and I am so glad. I am only 2 months into it and feel I am just scratching the surface. However, since C4D and VW are owned by MAXON, they do play well together, built only from VW to C4D - not the other way around as others have said . . . Dan
  2. Hi All, Trying to render a fly through and when sending to the render farm, this is the error code I get: Plugintag "" (1016641) is not supported. Not sure where to look for the error - any thoughts? Thanks, Dan
  3. Hi All! Noob here in Mahoning, Pa. Not new to forums (gear-head) but new to this one . . . VERY new to C4D which is awesome and frustrating trying to learn. I am an environmental designer working in the Broadcast, Corporate Theater and Exhibit / Trade Show industries for the past 30 years. Since this Covid craziness, our industry sounds more or less like crickets. So - working on a virtual platform where we can create virtual meetings - not much different than what we were doing before. Vectorworks / Renderworks were my programs of choice - I milked Renderworks for all it was worth for too many years before just switching to C4D. I can still build in VW if needed and it exports with little issues to C4D - major bonus as I am learning - they are very different programs. C4D is SO much more robust and stable - super-happy so far and I have just scratched the surface. That being said, I am going to hit you all hard with newbie questions as I am trying to be as proficient as possible in short order. I have many lighting, camera and fly-through questions - mostly basic stuff. Try to have patience with me . . . Thanks! Dan
