  1. Got frustrated, ended up rebuilding. Working so far. The layers that were flickering were scaled up by 150 percent. Maybe this has something to do with it. IDK, but this sucked. I didn't feel like sleeping tonight anyway. Grundly, I don't think its a processing issue. I purged everything, tried another computer, nothing worked.
  2. Same issue on the other computer. This was supposed to be a quick little thing, just extend an intro, no big deal. That was 6 hours ago. Anybody else? Thanks grundly
  3. Thanks Joe, Yeah I purged everything, restarted, got rid of the cloudlets and the shading. No dice. This is a pretty complex scene (by my standards anyway), and I can't really just copy over to a new solid. Plus its happening on multiple layers anyway. I'm at my wits end. I'm moving the files to a different computer right now and keeping my fingers crossed.
  4. Hey all, I need some help ASAP. I've got some snow falling in about 6 different particular layers, and it all glitchy popping on and off screen. I'm using a cloudlet, but switched to a sphere and had the same results. I've googled, but all I'm finding is issues with custom particles. If anybody has any insight, I'd greatly appreciate it. I'm bald and haven't even got any hair to pull out...
  5. Had to weigh in... Isn't that the issue though? That we are constantly being exploited, with the cavalier attitude "it's New York." I've had to change the type of job I work because frankly I'm not willing to be exploited. But that means I can't go work at any big house, and I have to take jobs that unfortunately won't beef up my reel, and won't lead to much new work. I'm still happier than logging mandatory 12 hour days, but it's a shame that I'm unable to work to my potential because I've got a bit of dignity and self worth. It is a very slippery slope when people start acting less like workers and more like indentured servants.
  6. Thanks guys thats awesome! Fleezy, you're epic! I'm gonna follow along when I get home tonight.
  7. David, if I understand correctly, you're telling me that this was not modeled in C4D. I have no access to a modeler, so that isn't an option. Is there a workaround?
  8. I've got a model of skull Im trying to cut down a bit. I need the jaw to move independently, and I need to remove the back and cavities. Seemed simple enough. Went into polygon mode and started deleting. But eventually I noticed some of the remaining polygons were, for lack of a better description, messed up. I don't know what is wrong, and for the life of me I can't even figure out what to google. So I'm hoping somebody can take a look and let me know what's going on. BrokenSkull.c4d And if there is a better way to do what I'm doing, let me know. I can't help feeling that there is. Thanks guys!
  9. Thanks all. I think I'm going to have to go with AromaKats' solution, but only because the other two options may be above my level of comprehension. I just won't be able to get as close as I'd hoped.
  10. Long time no see, hope y'all are well. So I've got a logo which I would love to see rendered (C4D, duh.) in the form of a sew on patch. And I haven't got a clue as to how I should achieve it. Any advice? Thanks!
  11. Yeah, but how do you point the site to the image host? As far as I can tell it gives you the option to upload (which fails) or use gravatar.
  12. After a stressful hard drive failure, I've just replaced the hard drive in my computer as well as upgraded to CS5.5. So now I'm feeling almost like it's a new machine, and I'm thinking about upgrading to Lion. I'm currently running 10.5.8, and never even jumped to Snow Leopard. Any advice, thoughts, buyer beware kind of stuff? Are there programs / plugins that will fail?
  13. 2nd that. I'm happy to host my own, but no way do I want a Gravatar.
  14. not too much heavy lifting. Most complex shot I'll have is to orbit some text around a stationary ball. I like the price of pfhoe, but what are it's limitations?
