  1. Normally a pearlescent type finish is achieved by adding a coloured fresnel gradient into the reflecton colour channel. But as the coloring in your sample is a bit more 'directional', it may simply be reflecting a coloured gradient on a sky object
  2. Brilliant! And intriuguing.... I havent a clue as to how some of thoes are set up.
  3. I think there is a difference beyond the CPU / GPU discussion actually. Corona makes really beautiful images - and encourages you to use it like a camera. Emulating reality is at its core ethos, which is why arch vis people like it so much (as do I - although I use it for product visuals). Octane also makes really nice photoreal shots, but But AFAIK can be a more versatile engine if you want stylised imagery. Which lots of mograph/vfx prople do.
  4. Here's a simple scene with trees scattered over a landscape (textures not included). Works for me. Maybe check your parameters are roughly the same. Also check the order of the effectors, as that will effect the result trees.c4d.zip
  5. It should work fine. A possible problem is if the axis centre is not at the base of the tree - have you checked that? Are you also using a random effector? Are you sure that its not effectng the Y position?
  6. I recently had this same issue. It's not easy, because for label artwork even very small distortions in the UV mesh become very obvious. My soloution was to make a straight version of the label. I then duplicated it and used a bend command to distort it to match the artwork file - made it editable - flat projected the AW onto it. Then used a pose morph to re-correct it back to the straight version while retaining the UVs of the bent version.
  7. Seems simple - but I can't see a 'correct' way of uninstalling R21 on my mac. Anyone know the recommended method? (I can't use it in production on account of missing plugins, and I can't stop the OS opening my files in 21 rather than 20. So I'd rather delete it for now) Cheers R
  8. It's very likely by Man vs Machine. They did some old stuff for them here too: https://mvsm.com/project/play_series C4d with a heavy dose of Houdini?
  9. Coming from a position where C4D's right-click-to-show help was the best in the industr,y this is not a step in the right direction. For a while I've felt there was something going amiss. For instance the CAD importer that was put in place in r20 does not have associated help for its paramenters - leaving you to guess the result. Still not in R21 by the look of it.
  10. hdri would be better. Use a sky (and donate) to hdrihaven.com
  11. Hi Rick. Look, if it hadn't been fully thought through properly in time because you've been working you a**es off - then the right thing to do is delay its implementation until it is fully ready and the details are thought through. History is littered with software companies who released stuff too early and suffered backlash due to bugs . No-one is making you implement it this year.
  12. My final thoughts before I exit this thread. I'll renew my MSA for R21 (with a heavy heart). But I have a strange feeling that they will release a major feature mid-cycle (possibly something that was held back from the original release) that will only be available to subscribers. A final stick to get you away from perpetual. We'll see. In the meantime I'll attempt to progress with blender 2.8 throughout the year.
  13. Ah - you may be a victim of the 'automatic renewal'. I knew there was a reason I didn't go down that route
  14. This sounds pretty heavy handed form your reseller. My (Dutch) reseller basically sent a mail saying that he MSAs were being cancelled, and it was possible to extend if I wanted to. (my MSA ends 310819)
