Recurving the “raw” edges places where there is no corner at all, just a straight edge by extruding and tucking the new edge underneath lets SoftEdge soften edges it might not otherwise. The plugin is designed as an object generator. You need to be a member in order to leave a comment. Depending on what parts need animating you could then also make that editable and just pull a few points out around the folds to add the extra thickness around those bits. The biggest issue I’m finding is getting those nice rounded fold edges, and adding mass to folded and re-folded shapes. Center Axis sets the object axes of point and polygon objects to the geometrical center.
Mirror, Mirror is a new plugin for Cinema 4D: Posted April 20, Biomekk Translucent Pro Translucence Vreel Viral Generator Helps creating fast and complex spline based structures, such as nerves, starfishes, tentacles an much more. BlackStar Solutions Center Axis Center Axis sets the object axes of point and polygon objects to the geometrical center. Take a bow you star you! The Shia has spoken. Microbion PaintOnSurface The purpose of PaintOnSurface is to provide a fast and easy way to create any arbitrary object on the surface of other objects. Among DiTools there are deformers, modifiers, shaders, Xnodes, post effects and even a surface painter tool.
Might be overkill if your edge shader is working but if you need the physical thickness then it’s a quick way set the subdivisions to 0 if you don’t want hypernurbs type rounding. It’s under character menu. If you really can’t alter the geometry at all you could possibly process it and store it in a look-up texture that you can sample per-vertex. Does anyone have any experience or suggestions?
DiTools is a large set of tools consisting of different types of tools that add functionality to Cinema edgeahade, which are otherwise unavailable.
You edgeshadf need to calculate this in a mesh preprocessing step because you don’t have access to adjacent vertices in the shader. With real origami you quite often get errors and random folds in the paper from the process, the texture mapped paper sells this to the eye when faking it. Among DiTools there are deformers, modifiers, shaders, Xnodes, post effects and even a surface painter tool.
Yes that includes a sharp dressed manokay ZZ Top? Select parts of your model with ease. BlackStar Solutions simpleClone This plugin enables fast reproduction and manipulation of one or more subobjects.
Enable axis modification mode. Again a bunch of parameters is there, every single one can be animated.

The purpose of PaintOnSurface is to provide a fast and easy way to create any arbitrary object on the surface of other objects. As with all things in Cinema 4D, there are more than a few ways to accomplish something and modeling is certainly no different. Nothing in real life has razor sharp edges so why should your models? Jan 26, Posts: Spline Patch generates surfaces from three or four splines. Infact I think I like the trees better than the animals ha Edited April 20, by froj.
To smooth this out we can add more generated geometry by changing the number of intermediate points on the Star spline. The client wants it to be a stop-motion shoot, but there’s no budget for that, so instead we’re trying to get as close as we can in 3D. Welter’s page cinemaa has a bunch of workflow gems including the indispensable UV to Object plugin so be sure to check it out.

Double lastly, make sure your light temperature is something realistic, not perfect white. You need a wireframe shaderand you cinena do that with a geometry shader or by finema barycentric coordinates into the vertex. Add geometry where objects deform.
CGTalk | New Plugin: EdgeShade
Mar 21, Posts: Posted April 20, It should go without saying that modeling parametrically or non-destructively as possible is always a good way to go since you can always get back to a previous state.
Jawset Vue Natural environments. Where geometry is complex or dense, you can use falloffs found in the deformers and mograph effectors as modeling tools. Recurving the “raw” edges places where there is no corner at all, just a straight edge by extruding and tucking the new edge underneath lets SoftEdge soften edges it might not otherwise. All the weighted information gets saved in a new SDS Weight tag. I’m not sure C4d has the exact equivalent to either of these solutions, but I’ll bet it does because its a mature app.
Again, this is where reference helps. Insydium Xfrog Trees, plants, growth.
Rounded Edge Shader
Monovich those boards are lovely, can’t believe that wasn’t produced. Take a bow you star you! By the way, did I mention this is all animatable?!
As far as texturing, I work in Lightwave not C4d, but I found that simply slapping a crinkled paper texture on any model instantly made it look a lot more convincing. To really get fancy, you can play with the spline parameters of the falloff.
Modeling Tips in Cinema 4D. Likewise by using a mograph plain effector in point deformation mode and as a child of the rim, we can push and pull geo and limit what geometry is affected by using cylindrical falloff.
