Hey Guys! I finally got the chance to work on personal projects again after almost 2 years of constant working.

Here's my first exploration into perfume viz on a personal mock brand I made; Not Savage inspired by Dior Sauvage. All done inside Cinema 4D and used Octane Render.

After effects to Cinema 4D

Hey guys I tracked a camera of a scene on AE and exported to Cinema 4D with a few solids and the camera to add some 3D elements.

The scene is HUUUUGE and simulations are all getting really messed up. Any of you know how I can fix this?
Thank you!!

How to make this wall slightly curved?

I'm not sure if I can ask such basic question here but I tried all I could but still couldn't figure it out myself

I'm a complete beginner in c4d, and I want to make this wall slightly curved (as indicated in 1st pic) I tried to use the bend deformer but it certaainly did not achieve what I wanted :(

Would greatly appreciate it if anyone has any ideas they could share 🙏

How do you render realistic atmosphere/haze without completely losing the sky/background in RS?

When I'm rendering an outdoor scene, I want things in the distance to appear more and more washed out as they do in real life, but still have a clear sky. Using the RS environment object will completely blow out the background, creating a dense fog. The Height parameter is useless because it creates a sharp line even with the horizon blur maxed out.

I know an alternate option is to use a depth pass and do it in comp, but I have elements in my scene that don't work with that (vdb clouds don’t play nice with AOVs).

Is there a way to cheat it by creating a shader that is driven by camera distance?

How do you create this "wrap around" effect?

I can't texture if it's a special texture around the base model or something else

Need help understanding how to create bumped/rounded surface shapes

Hi! I am trying to model these kinds of rounded/bumped objects in Blender or Cinema 4D. I created the SVG versions, but I am not sure how to achieve that rounded surface effect. I am using extrude with bevel, but the surface always stays flat. Is there any way to achieve this without sculpting?

Animation of objects "popping in" ?

Hey everyone,

I've seen this animation become quite popular, maybe it has always been, and I wanna recreate it.

The animation I'm talking about is when and object "pops" into existens and settles on a surface. Like this reference from Kevin Olberg: https://www.instagram.com/reel/C6vIl44N5UG/?utm_source=ig_web_button_share_sheet&igsh=MzRlODBiNWFlZA==

Any ideas of how to recreate it?

Rendering Issue in Picture Viewer (Redshift)

Hey, I have a problem with rendering in the Picture Viewer (Redshift).

When I try to render my scene in low quality (LQ) with minimal samples and 1280px resolution, it reloads the materials for every frame. However, on other computers with the same version of Cinema 4D, it works fine, and the materials are loaded only once.

The other computers have NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2080 Ti and 4070 GPUs, while the problematic computer has a 3080 GPU. This issue started occurring earlier this week. I've updated the graphics card driver and reinstalled Cinema 4D twice.

Therefore, I don't think the problem is related to the graphics card or the Cinema 4D and Redshift versions.

Has anyone encountered this issue before and found a solution?

From the catalog inside the content browser to the asset browser

Inside the content browser, I had created a catalog, divided into many subcarters that recalled .c4d files and Tex.

I have converted all the .lib4d.

While the .cat4d catalog how do you convert it?

[Dentro al Content Browser, avevo creato un catalogo, suddiviso in tantissime sottocartelle che richiamavano file .c4d e le tex.

Tutte le librerie .lib4d le ho convertite.

Mentre il catalogo .cat4d come lo converto?]

Fields Affecting Scatter Objects?

I've got a scene where I used the Scatter Pen to place a bunch of simple trees. Within the tree object that I reference for the Scatter Pen I have a Displace deformer with a Noise shader on it to distort the surface of a sphere which represents the leaves of the tree. I then want to use a Shader Field to animate in such a way so that I create an effect of wind patterns moving across the scattered trees in waves. Some trees will seem to billow in the wind while others don't.

The issue I have is that because the deformer is on the object referenced for the Scatter Pen, it seems to be instancing that tree and therefore the distortion is identical across every copy. I briefly tried to make the Scatter object editable and to change all the instances to multi-instance but it is too taxing computationally to be practical.

Is there a simpler way to achieve what I'm looking for?

Looking for something like the Auto-grid in 3ds max

i need to create a lot of planes on a geometry that has no rotation value. and each plane has to be straight on the surface, aligning it manually for each one will be very painful.

something like the auto-grid option in 3ds max will make it so much easier but i failed to find anything similiar to this in cinema 4d.

does anyone know a solution ?

thanks

Sketch and toon heads….

Question:

Is there a way to use two images in a cel shader?

I’d like to use two pngs as textures in the luminance channel. One for when there’s light shining on the surface and one when it’s in the dark. I can achieve the effect with colours but I can’t work out if you can do it with two images.

Thanks!

Intership for this Summer in Barcelona

Hello guys, i will shoot my shot and will try to contact here for some Intership in barcelona/catalunia.

My name is Naël Lamaison and I am currently in my third year at BAU, Barcelona, where I have developed skills in graphic design. I am particularly fascinated by the world of 3D design which for me is the future of design (fashion and graphic) and I am eager to apply my knowledge in a professional environment.
I am writing to you with the purpose of expressing my interest in carrying out an internship of at least 150 hours in the field of 3D graphic design during the months of July and/or August.
I consider myself a creative, proactive and dedicated person, willing to learn and collaborate in different teams.

To learn more about my work and my projects, I invite you to visit my website https://naellamaison.cargo.site/.

I appreciate your consideration and look forward to the possibility of working with you.

Boolean operations and Auto-topology?

Does C4D have auto-topology/remesher in the 2024 version? If yes, I believe I can build models fast by spamming boolean operations then using auto-topo/remesher to fix the topology?

Any idea If this is possible in C4D?

Wondering if you can make this idea in C4D using some sort of random movement on a shape to take away from another.

First attempt at VFX, any suggestions on how I can make it better?

I used Houdini for the sims, Cinema 4d for rendering and then After effects for compositing.
