  1. its a cool stuff, but forcing registration isnt gonna win you any brownie points. If people want to see what your company is up to they will follow you on facebook/twitter/google+ whatever.


    if you are worried about bandwidth, just throw it on a free host like mediafire.


    I think there was a script somewhere, which did something similar. if you selected an object and a deformer, it would match up the dimensions. Not sure where it is though.


    But otherwise, cool tool.


    My exact response too! I did not DL the file because of it. Thanks for sharing though.

  2. Generally, you never see perfume splashing around inside a bottle in commercials. The product is usually stationary. With that being said ... Cinema4D comes with some pretty good fluid shaders that should help you move forward.

    Make sure you introduce caustics into your render. It will really help plant the bottle into the scene.

    Here is a model I created for a company, the name has been covered but you get the idea. It's a pretty low quality render. The final looks a lot sharper.



  3. Looking closely at the render I can tell you they used SSS on the trees. It's quite obvious. Just add a slight purple luma SSS. For a clay like feel you don't need your settings very high to accomplish this. Also try adding a 5-10% luma that matches your color channel to give the washed out look if you are not using SSS on the shader. (SSS is generally applied to the luma channel)

    The master C. Smith is right ... make your shadows purple or blue, not black. Black shadows suck in 3d MG.

    Also, use a parallel light, not a spot light, so your shadows are even Steven!


    Hope that helps.

  4. Although this splitting up UserData works in this example,

    be aware that GetUserDataContainer() is used to browse through the UD container sequence of the Object it refers to only,

    so the UD you want to hide needs to sit on the Object that it's looking at.


    You probably need to edit that to make it suit your own setup.




    Thanks for the heads-up. I have the Python Tag sitting on a controller Null that has all the UD in it.

    I just started learning this stuff the other day. I find the documentation a little difficult to work with.
