  1. Hmmm, I had never heard of MakeHuman.org. Looks interesting, but it requires Mac OS Sierra 10.12 to run. I'm one version behind because of RAID issues.
  2. My first question is did you check out the humans that come with C4D's content browser? There are a nude man and woman, and the Visualize folder has 48 clothed and posed models. Also, if you have the Adobe Creative Cloud, you have access to Adobe Fuse CC (https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/how-to/create-3d-character-adobe-fuse.html?mv=product&mv2=accc#) Basically an Adobe version of Poser. You also would have access to upload that model into Mixamo's site and apply mocap data. It's pretty awesome.
  3. Great tutorials indeed! I gave up trying to get my cars to be dynamic because it was so slow it was pointless. I had totally forgot about using the primitives to make the calculations fast. Thanks for sharing!
  4. I have been told by someone working in LA, that this is the best blur plug-in for After Effects. Of course, you need to render your animation passes and/or masks. http://www.frischluft.com/lenscare/index.php
  5. I looked at Maya's 3 year deal with support and it works out to about $1,600/year. Cinema 4D with MSA works out to about $1,800/year. MAXON includes Cineversity premium with the MSA, not sure what Maya has. Not exactly a third of the price, however, it's not a good perception to be a little more expensive than the industry leader when not all of the tools are equal.
  6. Don't forget about the Mesh Deformer. Very powerful. In fact, I saw a tutorial by @HSrdelic where he showed how to use the mesh deformer instead of any cloth at all.
  7. @Cerbera The only thing I don't understand is that I fully expected to see one of the rotation numbers to NOT be zero, but they all were. Really the only thing was the XYZ that I reset. Curious.
  8. True to a point, but I'm also very interested in your car rigging. I need to get better at getting cars to looks natural.
  9. I brought up the Axis Center window up and reset both Splines' axis and now it's perfect.
  10. Wow that's awesome! Nice job. How did you create this? Did you make your own rig? Use a plug in? Details please.
  11. Wow, this looks awesome! Thanks for posting that. Now, if I could only make my work go away for an hour so I can learn something. I'll be sure to post my next creation.
  12. @SIgor Thanks but what page am I looking on? I can't seem to find anything here or on Corona's site.
  13. @ThomasGrimes I know Corona is still Alpha, but we really need startup content and tutorials. How am I supposed to properly evaluate and provide feedback if I don't know how to use it properly? There's a ton of Max videos out there, but the last time I checked, C4D's material system is vastly different and not easy to translate. I really like Corona and will try and convince my company to buy it, but..... well, you know.
  14. Aside from it's better not to use a Boole and polygon model it instead, there are only two ways to do this. If you want to keep the model intact, do what you have done to make the first Boole. Now add another Boole object. Drag your Windows Boole as a child of the new Center Boole. Finally, add the object that will cut away the center part. If you repeat this process, you can keep adding holes, but it will get slower and slower. The other way is to hit Current State to object to make a single mesh with your windows. Then you add this model to a new Boole and make the center part. It may work fine, but the mesh will be messy. I did this many years ago with a pumpkin and it worked, but man was it slow in the viewport. Ha! I found that pumpkin image. I think this was made with r7. Each eye, nose and mouth was a nested Boole. Rendered OK but slow to work with.
  15. Can anyone compare realistic rendering between Corona and Vray? No indication what part of the world that seminar is being held. I tried to register for the Corona session, but it has already ended. Hulk mad. Hulk smash! Clicked on the seminar for tomorrow, and it does indicate Eastern Standard Time. Wonder if it will be posted online at some point. Did anyone see the Corona session?
