CORE 4D Rules

Recommended Posts

The C4D Cafe is a free site dedicated to the free sharing of knowledge about CINEMA 4D, plugins, tips, tricks, and techniques. We share all manner of information, demo files, animations, and just generally have a great time learning.


Unacceptable posts include any considered to be: illegal, unethical, obscene, threatening, unnecessarily negative/attacking, and the like. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately via the personal message system. Remember that messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of the C4D Cafe forum or its owners.


The C4D Cafe retains and enforces its copyright on the tutorials that we produce. They are for your personal use only and may not be sold, bundled with products, or distributed without the prior consent of the C4D Cafe staff.


We encourage you to tell others about the Cafe and link them to our site.


With all good things there has to be some rules, and here are ours:


  • Your REAL FIRST and REAL SURNAME are required. This is visible (only) in your profile. This is so that other Cafe members know who they are dealing with. If you don't agree with this then don't join. Existing Cafe members who haven't previously supplied their real name will be required to supply it when they update their profile.
  •  We prefer members to use the image upload system, but you can also embed links from external sites. DROPBOX or GOOGLE DRIVE links are encouraged to share c4d files if they are too big to upload directly. 
  • YouTube and similar type videos can be embedded within forum posts. To do so just copy and paste link in the text editor.
  • Members are expected to read the descriptions of the different forum sections and post in the most appropriate section.
  • Keep thread titles informative and relevant. Avoid titles such as "Urgent" and "HELP ME" as these don't help other users search the site afterwards.
  • No signature images. Members can't provide links to their website or home pages if they contain paid content. Text formatting is not allowed on signatures unless you are a cafe supporter. 
  • Avatars must not contain anything offensive and the Cafe reserves the right to require these to be changed or removed.
  • Member names must be written with English characters. We also reserve the right to delete or change members names that we find inappropriate. 
  • You cannot use a name that is a trademarked name and or product name.
  • Stupid and or joke names are not permitted. System like words e.g. "Testing" and "Beta" cannot be used.
  • Names cannot be repeating words e.g. Johnjohn is not permitted.
  • Offensive / obscene looking email addresses are not permitted.
  • We reserve the right to delete new accounts where we don't think the name is suitable and not covered by any of the previous rules.
  • One account per person. We have systems in place to detect members having multiple accounts. We will ban / delete extra accounts.
  • No posting of pornography (or links to same) in either the forum or gallery. Images portraying gratuitous graphic violence are not permitted. The Cafe admin staff and moderators will be the sole judge of what is acceptable and what is not.
  • Max image size for the gallery is 1920 x 1920.  For the forum, please try to keep images no more than 1280 x 1024 if at all possible and ideally less than 1 MB. Please compress images (jpg, gif or png) and don't upload TIFs etc. Please zip up c4d scene files, but only if they are over 1 MB. Please note that c4d scene files compress a lot.
  • The gallery is not the place to post WIP images or CEL renders,  the latter of which has its own gallery. Post WIP images and CEL renders in their relevant sections.
  • Scene files, resources uploaded to the downloads / Market sections must be your own work and not copied from somewhere else. By uploading you're putting your material in the public domain. If you don't want your resources being used for commercial use, then you need to include that in the terms and conditions. 
  • Personal attacks and racial slurs will not be tolerated. The Cafe is home to members from all around the world and from many different cultures. Please be mindful of this when posting.
  • The C4D Cafe will not tolerate warez / piracy and spam etc. Members abusing this will be banned immediately. 
  • Unsolicited advertising in our forums is not permitted. Please contact Admin if you want your product or site promoted here.
  • Please refrain from excessive capitalisation of words, excessive punctuation, and formatting in posts.
  • Topic bumping is not permitted. If you don't get any replies take a look at your message. Perhaps you haven't written it very clearly.
  • The Cafe admins reserve the right to delete, move, merge or edit any message or image without having to provide a reason; however we will provide it in most cases.
  • The only usage of the Cafe logo is as a link back image from your web site.
  • We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message. 
  • We do not allow members to advertise software for sale apart from Cinema 4D. e.g. if you're selling modo or ZBrush then you will need to advertise them somewhere else.
