HDRI Studio Pack FAQ

HDRI Studio Pack requires Cinema 4D 11, 11.5 or 12. You also need Global Illumination. How do you know if you have Global Illumination? If you have the Advanced Render Module, or R12 Broadcast, Visualization, or Studio bundles, then you are ready to rock! Runs on Mac or PC operating system. NOTE: HDRI Studio Pack is fully compatible with Cinema 4D R14
Help! I’m not getting any shadows at all when using the Studio Pack.
Be sure you have global illumination turned on and that you have a floor in place to catch the shadows. If you still are having problems, try reinstalling the Studio Pack.
Where did the seamless floor rig go in the latest version?
The Seamless Floor Rig is now built in to the HDR Rig. This allows you do some cool things like add reflections to your seamless floor and other compositing tricks. If you need just the Seamless Floor, just turn down the HDR Brightness to zero and it will behave the same as it did in previous version.

My Effects Don’t Work After I Install
This usually happens with the plugin isn’t installed properly. Make sure on the “Transform” folder is the only folder under Plugins. Be sure to watch the Install video that was included and make sure it’s in the right place. Then, everything should work perfectly.
It says that I’m in Demo Mode. What Can I do?
If you have purchased a licence, then it may mean that the plugin isn’t installed properly. Make sure on the “Transform” folder is the only folder under Plugins. Be sure to watch the Install video that was included and make sure it’s in the right place. Then, everything should work perfectly.
How Can I Transform One Object Into Another?
You can do this by using two Transforms in one scene. Set one to OUT mode and one to IN. Then put two different objects in. As long as they are of similar sizes, the effect should look like one is Transforming into another. Here is a tutorial that shows you how to set it up.
Does Transform Support Dynamics
Transform does not officialy support Dynamics. However, if you are using Cloner Mode, then you will be able to add dynamics to the clones with no problems. (It works pretty great with Motext, too). We hope to have it working fully in a future version.
Im Having Problems using Motext
With the latest C4D update, Motext has a bug that breaks subdivided text with quad caps. Until that is fixed, we suggest using the spline text and and extrube nurb for now. We are working with Maxon to make sure it’s fixed ASAP.
What versions of Cinema 4D does Transform work with?
Transform works with R12 and up. It requires the Studio Edition or Broadcast Edition.
Are there any ways to change the shape of the chunks?
There are a few ways to get the chunks you want with Transform. Chunk mode creates chunks by cutting apart existing geometry. So, first try adding more interesting geometry to your model to allow for more interesting breaks. Triangulating your geometry also helps. Transform also works with other breaking tools. Just break apart your model any way you wish and use Transform’s Existing Parts mode.

When I render the “Battered_metal”, why do I get a texture error saying I’m missing “scratches_001.psd”?
