  1. Wow... thank you, KBAR! Downloading your plugin as we speak.
  2. I'm curious... Can I make guide marks... just quick 'n' dirty marks for my own creative reference... on the surface of a Geometry Polygon Object without going into the full rigmarole of setting up UV and UVPaint? ie., make marks not intended to be seen upon a Render... I want to indicate where on a geometry object I want to move and re-root a Hair object. Or maybe you know of a better way to achieve what I'm seeking to do. Thanks, ras

    1968 Model

    From the album: Rasputin's Gallery III

    An image I made this week. Figure is a DAZ3D figure. Dress made in Marvelous Designer. Hair and all else done natively in C4D. Corona render, 64 passes.

    Collection of my newer images, all modeled in Cinema 4D and mostly rendered with Corona Renderer. Enjoy.
  5. Hey gang, Can any of you solve this problem regarding the extrusion of splines? It's simple: I have imported these "Happy Birthday" 2D splines from Adobe Illustrator, and am trying to extrude them in C4D. Upon extrusion, the "eyes" and "holes" of the letterforms are not representing correctly; they are "plugged up", you might say. This is a dead-simple fontface, blocky, with the barest minimum of points... But somehow C4D is not "reading" the inner points correctly. Is there a solution for this, either within Illustrator or within C4D? I tried rever
  6. Really, really lovely. Love the painterly quality of the colors.

  8. JED, you nailed it. Thank you so much!
  9. Hey, Dave-- My purpose in this instance is not scientific, and thus does not need to reflect some natural physical behavior... I just wanted to extrude that spline to make curtains... and wanted the ripples to have that receding effect. Thank you for your erudition, though! Best, ras
  10. Cerbera! I Know!!! Once I had posted it, I couldn't figure out how to move it to SPLINES. Sorry. The old C4D CAFE allowed you to do just that! Why is there no longer a way to specify in your own post where you want it to show up?
  11. Hey guys, A question for you maths smarties (which I am not): What math Formula will give me a spline like the one I've hand-drawn for you here? Basically, it's a sine in which the repeating waves grow smaller... until you eventually get a flat line. Ideally, I'd like to have the repeating waves decrease by the Golden Ratio... ie., each ripple along +X is .61803 the size of the one that preceded it. My drawing is rough, but I think you get the idea. Thanks, ras
  12. I use Illustrator CC 2017... and have it tricked out with all my favorite plugins, which allow me to tweak shapes with more precision; I also, for whatever reason, like to envision my splines in a flat 2D atmosphere before sending them to C4D.
  13. I was totally unaware of Cineversity ArtSmart 'til now. I am going to give it a try.
  14. Hey guys, Have any of you encountered this? If you choose to draw a vector shape in Adobe Illustrator for later merging into C4D as a spline, you have to Save your Illustrator project in Illustrator 8 edition format. Otherwise, your spline, merged in, simply will not appear in C4D at all. Thus, any shape saved in Illustrator CC format (or anything after 8, in fact ) will not be recognized by C4D. Illustrator 8 was a long, long time ago by now, no? I'm just curious as to why this anomaly should be so. Any theories? Thanks, ras
  15. Yes. Attached here is a picture of what the splines look like, prior to extrusion. Also attached here is my C4D project file. I had merged flat the whole thing first in Adobe Illustrator. happy birthday extrusion.c4d
  16. Hey guys, I'm sure you will immediately recognize this familiar problem: When you try to extrude some text (that has been converted to splines), some splines will be recognized for extrusion, while others won't. In this particular set of text splines, some of the "eyes" of the letters will not be recognized. Like the inner "eyes" of my "B", "P", "Y", "D" and "O". Needless to say, this situation makes for an unusable model. I realize that this loopy, cursive font is not the best candidate for extrusion.... blocky/squarish fonts do much better. St
  17. Yes: Volumetric sculpting like in 3DCoat. Where your sculpting does not warp and misshape your UV's.
  18. Version 1.0.0


    This is an Art Deco repeatable design, recreated directly in Adobe Illustrator from an authentic French textile design of the 1920's. Included in the ZIP archive is one single seamless iteration of the pattern, in high-res PNG format, whose UV tiling repeat may be dialed large or small to get the look you desire. Suitable for interior room wallpaper, upholstery or any kind of cloth or textile, like curtains or bedspreads. Simply load this PNG bitmap into your material's Color channel. Cubic UV repeat is probably the best option.
