R19 Connecting Two Splines Issue - Bug
by Amdrew Cooper 2 days ago
Hi. When I try to connect 2 splines in R19 the intermediate points get messed up. For example, if you have 2 semi-circles (with three anchor points on each) - if I connect them (using the Connect Obje
Re: R19 Connecting Two Splines Issue - Bug
by Adam Trachtenberg 1 day ago
That is strange, but the easy workaround is to use the Spline Union command instead of connect and delete. It's found in the same palette as the other spline creation tools.

Re: xparticles, octane, cinema 4d

What version of x-particles are you using I have V3 and the Trail Object gives a "Constraints" option. If your version doesn't have that you might set your constraints to use particle distance and the

Layer manager won't hide children of a null

I have a LOT of different sweeps going on and I have grouped them into nulls to stay orgaqnized and put the different nulls on layers so I could turn them off in the view port. Won't work. I need to d

Also, if you hold down Ctrl when dragging a null to a layer all objects (and tags) will be added to the layer.
Scale clones sequentially over the time.
by Mat Zdziebko 1 month ago
Hi guys! I've got problem with scale clones sequentially over the time. Normally I'd use plain effector with fallof moving across objects, but in my case all objects are in the same place so it would
Re: Scale clones sequentially over the time.
by Adam Trachtenberg 1 month ago
I would keyframe the scale of the object being cloned and then use a Step Effector's time offset parameter to make it sequential.
Point level animation Jiggle
by Michel Salloum 2 months ago
Hi all, i have a stupid problem, i can't seem to figure out how to add a jiggle to Sweep animation. Am almost sure i have done this before, but it's not working for me anymore. 11653_sweepjiggle.c4d.z
Re: Point level animation Jiggle
by Adam Trachtenberg 1 month ago
I don't think it will work on a parametric object in this case, because the animation is really coming from the spline. What I would do is, instead of using the sweep, use a spline wrap deformer on a
undo on one object turns off radius and fillets on other objects

Can someone tell me why fillet and radius options that were set early on for object(s) turn off when I undo on another object later down the line Setting the radius and fillet was not the last thing I
Re: undo on one object turns off radius and fillets on other objects
by Adam Trachtenberg 2 months ago
Sounds like you may have inadvertently keyframed the radius fillet parameters Can happen very easily if you have autokey turned on and forget to switch it off.
Creating a Hexagonal Mesh Fence

I would create one hexagon mesh and then put that in a Cloner in radial mode. Once you get it set up the way you want, duplicate the cloner and use the radial offset to get the proper alignment for th

Yes, but you can control how much to some extent -- separately for the editor and picture viewer.

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 3 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 3 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 3 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]
