Video Wrapping Material Issue
by Eric Guiliani 1 week ago
Hey Everyone, I have whats probably a dumb question simple solution but I just can't figure it out. I am placing images and videos on the extruded surfaces of text and animating the offset for a "news
Re: Video Wrapping Material Issue
by Adam Trachtenberg 1 week ago
I'm afraid the solution isn't so easy. You're getting smearing with flat projection because ... the texture is literally being projected along a flat plane that has nothing to do with the actual shape
tracer connect all objects question

If you already have x-particles you might also consider going that way. The XPTrail object has a lot of options, although maybe not as many as Ubertracer2.

If you assign the materials before you make the object editable there shouldn't be any problem. Make sure you check the Inside Faces and Outside Faces boxes in the Vornoi's Selections tab. When you ma

Can't interpolate keys without changing the position path?

Hi there, Just wanted to post a quick question as wasn't sure if I'm missing a step. Below I have animated an object using all x y z axis at the same time, a ball producing an infinite shape. I'd like

The easiest way to do this is to use a Time Track. I did little video tutorial on this a while back: https: www.youtube.com watch v=q6AuonzrDJ4&t=11s
How to recreate the character coming out of the screen effect?
by Xavier Bonet 2 months ago
I'm working on a character in C4D that, at one point, is supposed to "look out" from the screen, such as one sees in some cinema teasers... i.e. something like this: As you can see, aside from coming

Voronoi Fracture Dynamics Not Working When Set To Trigger On Collision
by David Fleury 2 months ago
I have and object inside a Voronoi Fracture with a rigid dynamics tag on it. I have a plane with with a collider body on it. Everything works as expected until I change the trigger to "On Collision".
Re: Voronoi Fracture Dynamics Not Working When Set To Trigger On Collision
by Adam Trachtenberg 2 months ago
The "on collision" setting simply means that nothing will happen until something collides with your fractured object, so it sounds like it's working properly.

Judging from the noise pattern on the wall it looks like your GI settings are way too low, but it's impossible to say more without the scene file or at least more information about your settings.

Hey Adam, thanks again for all the help, Im almost there. It is working fine now but I tried to just pull your setup into my project and it is not emitting. Have any ideas why that would be?

Things are working pretty well but I have one issue left. There are now shadows showing on the snow and the piles created. I enabled shadows on the light source, is there a setting I am missing in xp [more]

Hey Adam, I am having so much trouble with this plugin. The render time is insane and it is not covering the parking lot, no matter how many particles or how long. The file example you shared does not open in R14, it says it has incorrect file structure. I am willing to pay you for all of the exact settings you used and any advice you might have on what to play with. I have been pulling my hair out.
Adam Trachtenberg 4 years ago
Are you sure you have the latest x-particles update I just tried here and my file opens fine in R14. As far as the snow density goes, the key is to use the filling option in the x-particles material. [more]
Jon Simpson 4 years ago
Hi Adam, thank you for your continued help.

My client is happy with the look of this but we will need to scale the particles down significantly. I was wondering if you would be interested in me paying you to add the snow after I finish the scene and the animations. If so, what would you charge? It would be much less expensive that way as I am not sure I would need the plugin very often in the future.
Adam Trachtenberg 4 years ago
Hi Jon, I'm game to do it, but to be honest it would probably be more expensive for me to do it as it could take a day or two of tweaking to get a satisfactory result. At my standard rate of $450 day [more]

Thanks Adam, that is a hefty price and very inspirational - a bit less than twice what I make a day. How long have you been doing this I am gonna dive in and hopefully need to use the plug-in a ton of [more]
