  1. Hi guys, Is the there a way to increase the amount of memory C4D uses when you are working on a project? I'm working on a lithophane model I've created online and then downloaded but it came with an obscene amount of points and polys and C4D is struggling to handle it. I don't normally deal with large amounts of points and polys, and if I didn't need to adjust the model I'd be ok, but what should be a 20min job is taking hours as every click of the mouse takes C4D a minute to catch up! Is there a way to speed things up? Cheers Jim
  2. @bezoThanks for the video it's helped me get started. I found a reference file on creating a flower using Pose Morph. The file has a null with the Pose Morph tag and it contains each individual pose, this is then linked to a base object which is effected by the sliders. I thought I'd try it the same way which I found easier to do, especially when it came to creating curves in my object. Both my file and the reference file look the same as the picture I've uploaded, but my object is only effected by one slider at a time whereas the reference file can be effected by multiple slide
  3. Hi guys, It's been a very long time since I setup a Pose Morph (PoseMixer) and so have forgotten how to do it and all the information from the google search results are no longer available, so could someone remind me how to set one up please. It is just for simply changing the shape of a cube, so nothing to elaborate. Thanks in advance, your help is very much appreciated. Jim
  4. Eyup @Igor, you can believe it I'm here! I've been lurking, reading a few boards here and there but never signed in. I did sign in about a month or so back, someone was asking about a Lithophane I had created a couple of years ago. At the time I was trying to rescue the harddrive that had everything on from the last 10yrs of c4d, photoshop, 3d printing and a few other bits on. There was about 2.5TB of data just gone! To say I was crying is an understatement! Luckily I found some software for about £20 that got a little over 90% of the files back thankfully all the important ones! Everything is
  5. Eyup guys, Been a very long time since I was last here to ask questions and explore the cafe, and boy has it changed! Hope everyone is well and keeping themselves busy and having fun. Now down to business! A quick and simple question. Is it possible to set all of the viewports so they are more 'zoomed in' than the default? I work pretty much exclusively to my 3D printers build volume 300 x 300 x 400 mm, and I have pretty much got everything set to within those sizes by default, which means everytime I start anything from scratch I've got to zoom in.
  6. Well there's good news and there's better news! The good news I've found the files you wanted. I've zipped it up but it's too big to upload here, so I've uploaded it to dropbox and shared the folder, you should be able to download it from here https://www.dropbox.com/s/vsgahv3gebpy205/Dragon Lith.zip?dl=0 Any problems let me know and we'll have to come up with another way to get it you you. The zip contains the C4D file, the image I used, and the stl, so all you have to do is slice it and print it. The better news is I've got 99% of my files back that I thought I'd lost. I've been sp
  7. It has been a very long time since I was here. A lot has changed and I've been incredibly busy! Although I didn't think it had been that long! I am currently trying to recover the external hard drive that that file is on. The hard drive somehow became currupted, I think it was down to a power serge we had just before Christmas that killed my pc! I have everything crossed and I'm praying a lot that I can recover some if not all that was on it as there was almost 2 TBs worth of C4D and 3D printing files on it. What makes it worse is that that was my backup! I was transferring stuff to it at
  8. This is awesome. Skulls are one of my favourite things. Would love to put this on my 3D printer.
  9. Just realised I did mine in the coffee window and not the python window! However when I redid it in the python window it still didn't work! Just done some messing about with bits, such as deleting the \\\\\\ and have now got it working and have added it to my layout. Thanks for all the help, much appreciated. Jim
  10. Thanks @bezofor putting all that down, not sure what when wrong though as when I hit execute nothing happened! I copied and pasted what you had written above into the script mgr and pasted in the line from the script log, but as it is now nothing happens!! In the line where it says 'if __name__==' should I have changed that to say the name of my object? Cheers Jim
  11. Don't think the first option will work as I've made this sphere from scratch, so can't save as default. Could do it with the a script, but I wouldn't have a clue how to do that! In all the years I've been using C4D it's one area I never touched.
  12. Hi Guys I've created a sphere which I'll be using a lot. How do I go about creating a button for it to add to my layout, so I can just click the button and it appears without me having to go searching through my files hunting for it every time I need it? Is there a tutorial somewhere for doing this kind of thing? Cheers Jim
  13. @VECTOR Is it congratulations or commiserations I wish you? At 41 I'm too young to be a grandparent yet. I did try and persuade her to keep it inside for at least another 10 years but she was having none of it. Jim
