  1. Thanks a lot for the kind words, Cerbera! And for buying the tutorial back then. :-) It's really nice to still get positive feedback for these videos after all these years... Thanks again!
  2. Thank you very much! I'm happy to hear you found the tutorial helpful. With the changes made to the spline tools in R18, creating spline shapes in C4D has become much more comfortable and fun. Personally, I prefer to do all of my splines in Cinema now as I find it easier that using Illustrator. :-)
  3. This is a very old tutorial I recorded back in Cinema 4D Release 9.6 (it was entitled "Modelling Architecture in Cinema 4D"). I took it offline a long time ago as it was outdated and not very useful anymore. I still keep getting requests for it occasionally though, which is why I have decided to re-upload it again. Sending people video files or temporarily uploading them to some file hoster was a bit of a pain. Anyone who has lost their downloads from back then or wants to revisit the tutorial can do so now. You can find the videos on Vimeo and YouTube. Cheers, contrafibbularities
  4. Hi everyone, Today, I'm releasing my free jigsaw puzzle library for Cinema 4D (R12 or newer). The library contains 150 different jigsaw puzzles, sorted according to their shape. All puzzles are based on photo references and 2D graphics images I found on Shutterstock, Printerest, etc. You can download the library here: Jigsaw Puzzle Library File There's a short video on the library you can watch on Vimeo: I hope you'll enjoy the jigsaw puzzles! Cheers, contrafibbularities Some examples from the library:
  5. Hi everyone, I'm sharing my Cinema 4D library of more than 1800 architectural profiles with you. It used to be a commercial product for a while, but as of now it is available for free. I made this libarary about 7 years ago in Release 13. It will NOT work in versions older than R12. All profiles are based on real-world references and scaled to real-world dimensions. You can downlaod the library here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/e4pshf0wast7919/arch_profile_collection.7z?dl=0 I hope you'll enjoy this huge collection of architectural profiles! Cheers, contrafibbularities
  6. Nice move! Releasing these videos for free will certainly make a lot of people happy. Not least, I guess, because elsewhere there seems to be a trend recently to charge ridiculous amounts for C4D training. I bought most of VertexPusher's training sets up to R18 (and they were all reasonably priced and affordable, in my opinion), and I can highly recommend them. I hope you'll achieve what you want by making your work available to everyone! Cheers, contrafibbularities
  7. Hi everyone, I've just finished an object library filled with 330 Chinese patterns I modelled on the basis of photo references and 2D graphics images, and I'd like to share this library with you. Each of the 330 patterns comes both as a polygon object and a spline object, so you'll have 660 objects to play around with. You can download the free library here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/5xeddl0y42j2knb/chinese patterns UD01.lib4d?dl=0 All objects as well as the library were done with Cinema 4D R18 and will work at least in R14 or better. I hope you'll enjoy the library! Cheers, contrafibbularities
  8. You won't regret it if you do. I agree with Dan. I'm only using a handful of the scripts from the bundle, but it's still worth it. Even Distribution is the one I use most, I think. It kind of changed the way I model because, especially with curved shapes and SDS, I can improvise much more. I can add some edges where I need them, or remove them, then even out the spacing between them with that script and still maintain a smooth curve. Cheers, contrafibbularities
  9. Thanks, guys, I'm happy to hear you liked the video. @DanSlK Thanks for catching that! Yes, I used the Even Distribution Script from the HB Modeling Bundle there, and I should have mentioned it in the video. Using that script has become second nature for me, I sometimes seem to forget it is not part of the C4D tool set and there's people out there who don't now these scripts yet. Feel free to kick my butt about it again if I forget to mention it in the next video. :-)
  10. SDS Excercise 07 (Full Tutorial) In SDS excercise number 7 we continue practicing modelling with subdivision surfaces. Once again I am using an object from a free kitbash library as a reference. If you want to give it a shot, you can download the project file here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/dc8s66og7z2v9po/SDS Excercise 007 start file.7z?dl=0 I hope you like the video. As usual, thank you very much for watching!
  11. HS Excercise 03: Detailed SciFi Floor Panel: In this 3.5 hour tutorial we will be modeling a highly detailed scifi floor panel. The object is based on a model from a kitbash set by Vitaly Bulgarov: https://vitalybulgarov.com/3d-kitbash/sci-fi-floor-panels We will be building a clean mesh from scratch, starting from a simple plane. I will show you my approach to modeling hard surface details, and how I integrate areas with lots of details into areas with little or no details. You can download a project with three Cinema 4D files we will be using: start_file.c4d, detail_01.c4d, and detail_02.c4d: https://www.dropbox.com/s/0fvv48a5n0whsgq/Project files.7z?dl=0 I hopy you will enjoy the tutorial. Thank you for watching! Cheers, Contrafibbularities
  12. Nice idea! Thanks for making this available!

    This is really handy for modeling. Thank you!

    This is really useful. Thanks a lot!
  15. Thanks for letting me know, Igor! I'll not make any changes to my older entries then. Glad I noticed after the first change yesterday. I almost spammed the blog section with my old stuff... Hope you can get this fixed eventually. Cheers, contrafibbularities
  16. Hi, Not sure if this is the right place to post this. When you make changes to older blog entries (correct typos, add a feature image, for example), your blog entry gets moved back to the top of the "latest" blog entry list. In my opinion, it shouldn't do that. It will appear to many as if it's a new entry when it really isn't. Do you think it might be a good idea to change that in a future forum software update? Cheers, contrafibbularities
  17. Well, that was quick... :-) Nice job! If you're happy, I'm happy too. Recording the tutorial wasn't that much work, and I enjoy making them when I have time. Glad I could help! Cheers, contrafibbularities
