  1. Hi Hrvoje Many thanks for this it is just what i was looking for as a starting block for what I want to do. The other good thing about this is that I actually understand the code - which is a good sign :-)
  2. I am starting to learn a little Python and one of the first scripts that I want to create would be one that resets all controller handles on a character rig. So this would be like the reset button on the character component rig that is built into C4D. What this does is reset all the controllers to their original rotational, scale and positional coordinates. This is unlike the rest button which will only reset the object that you have selected. Anyone got such a script that I could look at and modify to suit what I am after?
  3. You sure about that :-) I have a devil of a game with the mirror weights. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't...
  4. Will this reset the Position and Rotation of child objects too or just the selected item? I have tried and it doesn't seem to work for child objects…
  5. I will be getting a liquid cooler for the threadripper - that bit is easy. It’s cooling the gpus that’s the tricky bit but with cards getting faster and more powerful two of them there RX 2080ti cards should be nice without the need for extra cooling. The only problem I am facing at the moment is that my prefered supplier here in the UK cannot get any X399 motherboards at the moment...
  6. Hi Peeps Looking to build a Threadripper system with either the Asus X399 or the MSI X399 Pro Carbon Gaming boards. At the moment I mainly do CPU rendering (hence the Threadripper) but I am moving over to GPU rendering. The Asus board has 3 gpu slots the MSI has 4. I am leaning towards the MSI since it has four gpu slots which I can fill out at a latter date although will probably need water cooling). Anyone got any help on which is the better of the two?
  7. OK aside from cpu and gpu rendering performance what would be the best cpu for animation ie fps performance? Looking at the cinebench results the threadrippers seem to get 90-100 fps which is what I already get on my old banger... So I am assuming I would still be better off with an Intel chip with a higher clock speed?
  8. Well I looked at the 8700 and the 8086 chips for that very reason but also noted that they are not ideal for GPU rendering since they are only 16 lane whereas the threadrippers are all 64 lane which would give better GPU performance. The i7 8700K/8086K have 16 PCIE-Lanes, meaning you could use only one GPU at full speed with these type of CPUs. If you want more than one GPU at full speed you would need a different CPU that supports more PCIE-Lanes like the AMD Threadripper CPUs, that have 64 PCIE-Lanes, the i9 7800X (28 PCIE-Lanes) or the i9 7900X Series CPUs that support 44 PCIE-Lanes.
  9. Thanks for the tips guys! Here is the info that I read that started me off on this path and it was suggesting an Intel i7 8700K chips since it runs at 3.7 ghz. There is a newer one i7 8086K which is slightly faster 4.0ghz... CG Director
  10. Hi HSrdelic, but are the more cores mostly used for rendering or do they improve other features of the app? Preview renders for instance?
  11. OK I have an ageing i7 980 CPU which is still fine for a lot of the work I do. It is complimented by dual nVidia 980ti GPUs working with redshift for GPU rendering and another HP dual Xeon cpu machine for normal rendering. But I was planning on getting a new motherboard and one of those there Threadripper 1950X which runs at 3.4 ghz. Now I though if I am going down the GPU route then I wouldn't need such an expensive CPU and since alot of the work I do is animation/modelling a machine with a faster clock speed would be a better choice and possibly cheaper. So I ran Cinebench and got a single core score of 104 for my i7 machine and 101 for my HP machine. So since a lot of processing in C4D is still single core any speed improvement would be a greater benefit to me. I think that I saw a Threadripper 195X0 score 154 in the CPU departement so that would be a 50% speed increase which is nice but anything faster would be nicer. The area that the faster CPU would benefit me would be in previews for character animation work. If the CPU were faster I wouldn't have to keep making previews which are quite time consuming. Anyone got any suggestions?
  12. Hi Dan I have sent you the model. It's the pelvis that isn't mirroring, everything else does :-)
  13. Why is it that the mirror weights tool sometimes does and sometimes doesn'the work when working with the character tool. For instance I managed to flip weights on some spline joints apart from one which refused to play...
  14. Oh yeah I am not a great frequenter of this site ;-)
  15. Oh! I thought it was one of those meshes that I sometimes get which is overkill on polys from another app. How did you know it Isoparms weren't switched on?
