  1. Thanks for replies. For now I'll stick with wipix dvd and try to squeeze as much of it, as I can.
  2. It's been few weeks since I started learning rigin in c4d and I have to say that's freakin difficult. Mostly due to shortage of quality tutorials. There's lots of "how to rig a basic leg" stuff, but when it comes to good quality training, I mean few hours long "start-to-finish human rig for newbies", there's not a single one on the market. OK, there's a bit outdated WIPIX rabbit rig DVD bundled with c4d r11.5, and vertex pusher's vol3 training, but still there's a lot of things you have to figure out yourself, what I find very frustrating, because IMO riggin isn't something you can learn on-trial-and-erros basis, it's just too complicated. It's also very frustrating, when you look at abdundance of rig-training for other software, especially Maya. There's a video for almost everything! If someone decided do release some really good and informative video on riggin/animating human character, I'd gladly pay even $200 for such DVD (and I'm sure I'm not the only one) I just needed to complain a little bit.
  3. I have a simple, Xpresso driven rig, similiar to the one monkey shown on one of GSG's tutorials. I want this rig to move with a bit of springiness, so I gave it IK tag with dynamics turned on. (i'm running c4d r12) And now comes the tricky (at least for me) part. There's a conflict between Xpresso and IK dynamics and I cant get these two to cooperate. I'd be very thankful If anyone could help mi with this here's the problematic scene
  4. Oh, come on... What is more appealing to a kid who have just stolen c4d from torrents than bouncy balls he can show off his friends? Show some empathy for wannabees
  5. in (very very) short:1. Draw some Particles with TP draw 2. Use TP position follow node and you're done.

    Reel Music

    I'd like (as hell) to put Slayer on my reel, but I'll end up with electronic track, because it's more neutral to majority of listeners. I don't want my potential client to turn my reel Off just because Tom Araya's singing is too loud for him/her. I know it's opportunism, but my reel is going to win clients (I mean food, mortgage loan and so on) for me --------------------------- edit typos
  7. love this flying insect somewhere around 50th second

    Shapes in Motion

    you shouldn't stay away from motion graphics
  9. try a layer with fractal noise and mask it witch some decent feather. Then animate this layer. Duplicate if needed. I don't know what level of reaslism you're after, but for some not-so-realistic scenes it works perfectly
  10. I have strong flash background , so my AFX projects are made of precomps, because they're similiar to flash MovieClips. I usually divide animation into smaller chunks, animate each of them and then put together into precomps, then these smaller precomps into bigger precomps and finally my MAIN_COMP looks like bunch of "animation blocks" following each other
  11. If you animate material luminance with GI enabled, set GI mode to IR+QMC full Animation. It takes eternity to render, but "faster" GI modes won't give you good results
  12. Good animation just "flows" - I mean easing, timing, this kind of nuances. All of your animations in the reel have the same issue - movement is not fluid.

    Thanks for comments and ideas - I'll keep it in mind. I'm fairly new to 3d animation (most of my work is flash coding/animation) and this is my first 3D project of that size and length. I've learned lots of things during production, but as far as I can see, there's much more ahead Once again - thanks.
