Free Rigged Box Model

06 April 2012 - 12:47 PM

Getting ready to start a series of Layer Browser tutorials and wanted to share the model I'll be using in most of them. It's a rigged box with user data to control the flaps of the box opening and closing individually or all together. Enjoy!

Low-Poly Effect

29 March 2012 - 03:09 PM

Hey all, just posted a new tutorial on how to get the low polygon effect that seems to be trending. Note that in the tutorial I use a plugin to speed up the modeling process but feel free to model an object yourself. Still produces the same effect in the end!

Motion Capture for C4D

05 March 2012 - 04:38 PM

Have been playing with this over the weekend and so far it's been the best I have encountered. Dropping the cash on the Kinect is well worth it but you do need a good amount of floor space to make effective use of it. I think for character animation this could be a great way to sketch in some motion comps.

Fairly robust but simple and runs extremely well even when you throw in some dynamics. I'm going to be posting my finds as I go over on my blog.

Anyone else using mocap in C4D?

Randomize luminance for cloned objects

04 January 2012 - 08:10 PM

Does anyone know how to randomize the luminance brightness of a material applied to a cloner so that all of the cloned objects have random levels of brightness? I have been messing around with the Multi Shader, Random Effector, and Xpresso but can't seem to get the Luminance Brightness to randomize. Using the random effector, and changing the mode to Noise, can generate rhythmic random position, scale, and rotation, but I want that control over the luminance brightness.
