  1. Igor, I'm going to be starting a learning expedition over on the CG MAXON forum - focused on Unity and c4d/Unity integration. I'd be happy to offer that here at the Cafe  at the same time. Is that something you and Hjorve would be interested in hosting? Perhaps there could be a sticky? It would start next Thursday night. (March 1). 

    1. Igor


      Of course, that would be great! :) You can also make a Club if you wish! :)

      Cool. I'll post the announcement today or tomorrow.  ::):

      Igor....I decided I'm not going to have time to post on two different forums. It's time consuming. The next learning expedition I'll do only at c4dcafe and not at CG site.  ::):

    I want to applaud your work on these training sessions, H. Top drawer.

    C4DS, I want to offer belated apologize to you for not providing feedback as I said I would last spring. I had some health issues earlier this year that generally pulled me out of doing any 3d for quite awhile.

    How Does Autodesk Cinema 4D Sound?

    There are more c4d users than ever...but I'd guess fewer than ever posting here. Why? A few poisoned souls have been permitted to pillage and insult and deride...discourging the people who enjoy reasonable discussions about c4d and related topics.

    Why do you need X-Particles if Houdini does everything you need? I smell a fraud.

    I was expected some meaningful casualties, but nothing in that list seems notable for my work. I suspect for many of us the bigger casualties will be plugins that will die or require purchase of a new version.

    Further delays here, folks. I've been feeling less than well physically lately (new medication side effects) and on top of that I've been distracted with Hurricane Harvey. I lived in Texas through the 90's and know a lot of people there. I'm trying to arrange to open my home to some of the homeless. There are still other big distractions right now. It will be at least a week before I can resume reviewing 4D Publish.

    No I haven't tried "massive scenes". I'm not sure that's where it would shine, but I can't say. For presentations, training (two of the more obvious use cases) you often want to keep it simple. That said, Beeple put together some complex scenes that were ported to PDF with 4dPublish... Link: https://www.behance.net/gallery/32501755/4D-Publish-(3D-PDF-Publishing-Plugin-for-Cinema-4D)

    I played around in C4d/VR last night and had a lot of fun. 4D publish seamlessly works with the HTC Vive.And it is ridiculously easy. There is literally no configuration required. A single button will open the steam connection and instantly launch the VR viewer. In 2 seconds your c4d scene is transformed into an immersive world. The biggest companies are betting billions on the future of VR. It's still very early and the graphics often aren't as sophisticated as with standard games/experiences. However, the immersion usually makes up for that...and more.Nvidia/AMD/Apple/Microsoft/Google/Facebook/Unity/Unreal and a myriad of small companies are working very hard to make AR/VR a part of our day-to-day lives. Not a month passes where there isn't an advance in the foundational tech. Controllers are working more and more like your hands, tracking is improving, new display technologies are emerging, wireless is becoming an option, etc. etc.

    Hello hikarubr...thank you for your post. I'll keep you in mind. Do have a portfolio of your work--any medium, digital or traditional analog? One thing you'll certainly need to do for consideration is to complete your profile here.

    New in Cinema 4D R19 - Full Feature List

    It's not enough for you to dish out endless snark about c4d...you also have to repeatedly insult and impugn those of us who enjoy c4d and profit from it in our profession? Users who disagree with you...and are thriving with c4d...you describe as lightweights or those lacking taste or judgment? You are...something.

    Things have been crazy for me starting the week. I will be posting more feature summaries soon.

    I agree. Massive value in those features.

    Why interactive PDF is a big deal. I've worked in the energy industry and I can tell you that PDF is a big deal in training and internal communications. Eight years ago I helped automate the creation of thousands of unique training PDFs. If I could have included 3d interactive training content...I could have made 5x the money that I made. (probably more) Consider a PDF that includes your well crafted c4d content, where the viewer can zoom in/out and around...click buttons to view the proper operation of...for example...a crane or drill. PDF of course is everywhere online, used for briefs, brochures, presentations, etc. Your c4d content doesn't need to be limited to still images and videos. Add 3d and add interactivity and the potential value of those PDFs is enhanced. I suggest that some c4d artists could win new clients and new projects by adding this competency to their arsenal. (advertising, industry, small business etc) It's all very easy...all integrated into c4d. On the more playful side...Beeple used 4D Publish to create a cool concept piece. So there is a wide range of uses and possibilities.
