  1. I'm trying to animate the individual parts of these letters in this logo so they grow/fill out as solid geometry the specific way I want them too. I'm using multiple tracer objects to trace animated nulls along spline paths from the letters to grow/fill out the shapes. I'm trying to put those tracer object paths inside an extrude nurbs object to give them solid geometry, the problem I am having is the extrude nurbs is only extruding the actual spline. I'm not getting any caps to fill in the shape. I'm not even sure this technique is the best way to do this--any suggestions on a better way to pull this off or how to fix this problem appreciated! Here is a link to the scene file: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByisW6OXOLfYOGxBdTZHV3hKNWs/edit?usp=sharing Thanks!
  2. I finally got around to making a tutorial from all the stuff I figured out for a project in this thread: http://mograph.net/board/index.php?showtopic=27481&hl=&fromsearch=1 I go through where and how to get DEM data and a couple ways to import that data into C4D. Then I go through an easy way to create a cool effect using multiple renders, cel renderer effect and z-depth passes via RPF format and compositing those in AE. Tutorial video here: Result video here: I haven't made many tutorials but I want to get better so please leave me any constructive feedback. I appreciate it!

    Convert Topo Maps to 3D in Cinema 4D?

    Finally got around to making a tutorial on how to do this. You can check it out here: Thanks to everyone who helped me figure it out!

    C4D Camera Film Offset --> After Effects?

    Cheers! Thanks Chris!
  5. Anyone know a way to export the X&Y film offset settings on a C4D camera to an After Effects camera? Super annoying limitation IMO.

    Copy and paste TP Groups?

    Son of a gun! You're a machine! Awesome! Thanks dude!

    You could also apply a compositing tag to all the objects (this way is doesn't matter if they are one or separate) and set them to the same object buffer. It will create a matte you could use in After Effects to apply footage.

    Copy and paste TP Groups?

    Word. It's just silly.

    Looking for a wordpress theme for a portfolio

    What about this? http://www.press75.com/themes/blocco/
  10. I just imported an AEC file from cinema with over 1200 layers and AE didn't like that too much.

    Copy and paste TP Groups?

    I figured as much. Seems like one of those things that just doesn't make sense.... possible to write a script for something like that?

    Copy and paste TP Groups?

    Is there a way to copy and paste thinking particle groups in the TP settings panel? Seems like that would be a no brainer but . . . .
  13. Amazing! Your the man! Thanks forthe extra explanation as well. Will this PGroup Selector node work with the other preset you built? Will it work with TP subgroups if I select a parent group? I haven't tried it yet but I will be soon!
  14. Thankyou David! Your help has been priceless. I'm learning a lot! I figured it had something to do with the emitters sharing the same set of particle groups. I don't know anything about Python but looking at your code in the python nodes it looks like you are iterating through a hierarchy of particle groups, among some other things to get the desired result. Is there a way to achieve this without writing any code, just Xpresso? Using a hierarchy node or something?
  15. After trying to figure this out some more I realize the problems is something to do with particle groups. If the emitters never pass particles into separate groups the problem doesn't occur. Is there a way to keep TP groups relative to specific xpresso tags?
