Hi, Im using the caustics effect and I have an image as the 'bottom'. but the edges are warping and I can see underneath it. Whats the best way to fix the edges Thank you
Re: caustics edge warp

I tried scaling an tried transforming but dent make any difference as the caustic effects just seems to see the original image. I even precomposed and made the precomp bigger.

Strange glitch with importing a model from Adobe Fuse into Cinema4D
by Mike Yan 3 years ago
Hello! I started learning Cinema4D recently and got a weird glitch via importing a model from Adobe Fuse. Their models are free to use and have auto-rigging feature, so they are perfect for a start. I

self draw title box
by Ben Peterson 2 years ago
I need to create a self drawing title box such as the one shown in the video below at 0:09 secs with the lines from top and bottom then the words animate on from the centre. This part is easy for me t
Re: self draw title box

You seem to be telling me how to actually make the animation rather than my question about the client editing the text If they edit the text it needs to still work properly.
C4D particle emitter problems
by Ben Peterson 2 years ago
I have a hollow object that I am trying to fill with particles from an emitter. I have a collider tag on the object and rigid body particle. I'm running into all sorts of annoying problems. Firstly th

Hi Steve, This isn't my actual project , its just one I threw together to as an example of what Im doing. The actual one they are converted to polys and I lowered the divisions also but still leaks an
falling objects
by Ben Peterson 2 years ago
I need to fill up my comp with hundreds of small falling objects so that the screen slowly fills up like a container. Im thinking about doing this in Newton but what I want to know is do I actually ne
Re: falling objects
by Ben Peterson 2 years ago
The objects will be coins and I want the dynamics to be realistic hence why I want to use newton. Can particles do smoothing like that Bouncing off each other and the ground
landscape
by Ben Peterson 3 years ago
I have a landscape and some small houses. What is the best way to conform the land so that my houses can sit correctly Is it possible to sculpt it so I can make a plateau for example for my houses to
Re: landscape
by Paul Esteves 3 years ago
You could easily sculpt the landscape using the sculpting tools in cinema. Or you could boole out a chunk so your house has a flat section.
C4d and After effects
by Ben Peterson 3 years ago
Is it possible to do what I have depicted in the image attached in After effects Its seems like a simple thing but I have tried and cannot seem to figure out how this is done. I understand how to use
Re: C4d and After effects
by Joseph Tam 3 years ago
I'm guessing you'll need to do a multi-pass render so that you'll get an alpha-channel pass of the C4D objects, then you bring that into AE to composite it so that it looks like the AE shape layer is
Formulas database?
by Pierre-Alexis Tremblay 10 years ago

Hi Randy do you still have that list of formulas If so could I please get a copy
Round hole through sphere
by Ben Peterson 4 years ago
How can I cut a round hole through a sphere and make the edge of the hole thick like a wall I tried with a boole and a cylinder then put inside a cloth surface to get thickness which does work but but
Re: Round hole through sphere
by Brian Jones 4 years ago
one way is two booles - a sphere (slightly smaller) inside a sphere to give thickness then another boole using the cylinder Boole (A Subtract B) --Boole (A Subtract B) ----sphere ----sphere (smaller)
parent with different compositions
by efraim or 9 years ago
good evening guys. I want my null's rotation will be the same as other footage. the problem is...the null in a different composition, so i cant parent. I guess that expressions will be the solution. c
Re: parent with different compositions
by Ben Peterson 5 years ago
I tried this but for some reason the null rotation cannot be keyframed. It rotates the layer but when I make two keyframes then preview the layer is not rotating.
How link Rotation to different comp?
by Ben Peterson 5 years ago
I need to control the y rotation of my layer from a different comp. I have tried pick wicking to an angle control in other comp and the controller works until I try to keyframe it. I also tried linkin
Re: How link Rotation to different comp?
by Dan Ebberts 5 years ago
This happens if the nested comp layer has been moved in time so that it doesn't start at time = 0. You need to compensate for that by modifying your rotation expression to something like this: C = com
Duik screws up
by Ben Peterson 5 years ago
When I rig a puppet with duik and then I have to change stuff at the moment I am having to go back and delete the controllers and expressions and then re rig the part again after I have made an edit.
Re: Duik screws up
by Ben Peterson 5 years ago
Hi yeah its just very boring and tedious starting from scratch. I figured out that when I re-rig I have to make sure that the root layer i.e. the pelvis for example has to be at position 0,0,0 or the
