Color library with color names?
by John Willard 1 year ago
Hi, I want to create some kind of color library within C4D where I can easily add to materials. The problem with the C4D color chooser is that there is no option to save a name together with the color
Extract splines from UV tiles or UV mapped material image?
by John Willard 3 years ago
Hello, I need to render a product surface which will contain a combination of a UV mapped material with a pattern and modeled objects (stitches), and the problem is how to align them perfectly. Ideall

What concerns me with displacement mapping is lack of fidelity and realism, each individual stitch should look like a short tube that extends beyond the surface. I ended up using Rhino and manually cr
Automatically assign parent layer to all child objects?
by John Willard 3 years ago
I have a parent node with lots of child objects. All child objects must belong to the same layer as the parent node. This can be achieved by ctrl+dragging the layer to the parent node. However, is the
Re: Automatically assign parent layer to all child objects?

I've found the solution to my problem, and that is to create an Xpresso tag and place it on the parent node (e.g. called "GEOMETRY" which is set to the "GEOMETRY" layer). In the Xpresso editor I've pl
Does Override Group (Take system) work with polygon selections?
by John Willard 3 years ago
With the Take system you can create override groups so that you can change the material for multiple objects at once. However, what if an object has two material tags, whereby one of them is linked to
"UV Polygons" icon is grayed out
by John Willard 3 years ago
I've customized the C4D interface by adding a "UV Polygons" icon to the startup layout, so I don't have to change to the BP UV Edit layout every time I need to select UV polygons. The problem is, when
Re: "UV Polygons" icon is grayed out

It seems that you have to have a Texture View window open in order to activate the UV Poly tool, at least initially. You could create a layout with a tabbed Texture window if you wanted.

Automatically align view to nearest orthogonal view?
by John Willard 3 years ago
Almost every CAD program has a function where you press a button and the current view is automatically adjusted to the nearest orthogonal view. I use this command just about more than any other and it
Re: Automatically align view to nearest orthogonal view?
by John Willard 3 years ago
One advantage is that you don't have to know the name of the view you want in order to perform the command. And an even bigger advantage is that the view is aligned to the same rotation. By that I mea
Selecting tangent polygons
by John Willard 4 years ago
Hello, I'm importing a nurbs CAD file converted into an FBX polygon model into C4D to render it. This model consists of many polygon objects which are made up of many individual polygons. For some pol
Re: Selecting tangent polygons
by Adam Trachtenberg 4 years ago
Problem is that those groups of polygons aren't welded together. Select the mesh and run Mesh Commands Optimize and you'll be able to use the phong selection tool with perfect results. Run optimize in
