  1. Hi, For some reason, the V-Ray Light tag in C4D R14 has the Sun Light section completely greyed out. For that reason I cannot turn the physical sun on. I have been everywhere as far as the resources are concerned and yes, checked the manual as well but cannot for the life of me figure out why. I hope it is such a minuscule and simple thing I cannot see that for the person who has the answer, I will look like a complete fool. But I shall accept my faith, do any of you brilliant guys out there know what I've been doing wrong? Kind regards. (p.s. just realised that I have posted this in the wrong section, now looking to figure out how to direct this to a new location, oh god..)
  2. My sincere apologies for not thanking you both a lot sooner (almost like a year ago..). Funny enough, I only realized I had replies when I was checking Monkey's posts to learn as much as I could, then I stumbled upon a reply of his on MY post! By the way, you are one of the few creative minds that I try to follow religiously after your post on hierarchies, that was a game changer for me and it still is. You're the man. @Iline: cheers for the script, and glad to know I'm not the only one that struggles with the axis in c4d. As for character animation, I'm working on a project (as much as my time allows that is) to automate a rig using a physical controller. Nothing groundbreaking if you are familiar with music production and MIDI controllers. Basically, it involves the sliders in c4d to respond to the knobs on a controller. Mapping a general interface for the human body and dividing the whole thing into body parts are the keys. Unfortunately, I have limited time and it will take a long time for me to even test run the concept but anyone with a faster chipset in their skull than mine could possibly knock it down in a relatively shorter duration of time, just wanted to share my ideas across. The way animation works in c4d otherwise is just plain hell on earth with mostly unconvincing results as far as the human behaviour interaction is concerned, if you ask me. Cheers.
  3. I'm trying to set the axis of the children objects to the null via the axis center but can't seem to succeed so far. Basically trying to achieve this 'superflow' effect on this video vimeo.com/15486040 of which the chap does it all in 3ds max but can't seem to replicate it in c4d. I'm sure it's my clumsiness but any help is appreciated as in general this moving the axis business has started to piss me right off recently in c4d, I seem to be in need of guidance. Many thanks.
