I made a quick test with Microfloaties
that is micro organic debris xpresso setup
for Cinema 4D. I think it´s great for animation too.
See also this Post at mograph.
Here´s old cinema 4d scene file
that I had no use for. This is free to
use and if you are new to light setups
you will get the idea how to animate and
control multiple spotlights
with just few settings, mograph and target tag in Cinema 4D.
Sorry no animation preview. I am lazy today.
Download c4d scene file (r10 + Mograph)
I am starting to give free scene files
from my stash to cinema 4d community.
This is actually very old scene which I now
remade for r12.
Use in whatever project personal or commercial.
I noticed this good tutorial on my long list of Cinema 4D bookmarks
and thought it would be quite useful.
Basically it´s an automatised 3d skyscraper and city modeler inside Cinema 4D.
It´s made with Xpresso and you can easily add more floors to your buildings
and modify building height etc. So it´s good asset to have if you want to
make a city from the scratch by using your own set of house and building models.
Cinema 4D R13 is here!
Next Generation Simplifies Character Animation, Adds Stereographic Capabilities and Physical Rendering.
More Accessible Character Tools
This is a nice new plugin for animating MIDI music data in Cinema 4D. I tested
the demo and it´s a limited version of the full plugin.
This plugin helps you to automate the animating process of any object with MIDI data inside Cinema 4D.
You can bake the MIDI data including notes and velocity into your objects. Basic function changes just the green color
inside a null object that contains a set of objects and the objects acts as keys in a virtual keyboard inside Cinema 4D.
You can also change the Position,Scale and Rotation parameters.
All functionality can be also expanded into Xpresso scripting and other tools inside Cinema 4D.
You might want to use it also with Mograph cloner and effectors and it works
with Xpresso nodes. You just drag the plugin icon inside Xpresso editor and then you just connect it
with all the Mograph functionality and Thinking particles stuff!
Demo comes with 3 demo songs but you are able to find thousands of free MIDI songs in the
Internet or you can compose your own songs with external DAW.
The plugin has been made with Cinema 4D Python so it´s not located in common plugins menu but
in Python plugins menu. You are able to customize the layout so that the plugin is visible in Cinema 4D startup layout.
The options are bit limited in demo and you should know already how things work
inside Cinema 4D in order to make decent animations. There´s some youtube video tutorials for basic functions with Cinema 4D
but there´s no very good english manuals included because the plugin developer is not english. However you can get
the plugin basics work with youtube tutorials.
I think it´s raw and limited plugin but it will help you to import all necessary MIDI track data including notes and velocities
for your animations and it will give you a lot of fun. For 20 euros it´s cheap.
Here´s another new destruction plugin called Nitroblast from the creator of well known Thrausi plugin.
It takes the destruction parametres even further with new options.
You can have much more control how the objects will break. Also you can now create dust for the breaking
points with Vertex painting.
Just go to comments tab in Dashboard and locate “Screen options” in upper right
My problem was that I had another blog which was not used very actively and had collected
over 2000 spam messages. In Eordpress you are able to delete many spam
messages at once by using the bulk action.
Usually the “Show on screen” is able to show you just few messages on Comments page
by default but you are able to put 100 in “Comments” amount
slot. This really speeds up if you are a victim of spam bot attack.
I deleted over 2000 spam messages with this technique in just five minutes.
Do not be stupid
However I recommend you to use some spam fighting plugins or another more intelligent ways that will
fight bots and they are unable to register at all. There are plugins that asks questions and you are
also able to decide what questions will be asked. Bots are not very clever answering questions because
them are just programmed to register and login and post a spam comment. Bots are not usually
designed to answer specific questions in some specific topic. This fact makes the bots stupid.
I just bumped into this interesting, talented and beautiful young woman
when I was looking for some character design tutorials.
She is working in Blur studios as a character artist.
One of my favorite PC games is Hellgate London and
Sze Jones has been also creating some art for that.
See her interview in youtube:
