WHAT'S NEW IN CINEMA 4D R16

Setting up City Kit to Work as a Holographic Interface 25 Comments


In this quick tutorial, Chris shows you how to add some effectors to City Kit so you can focus in on just a few buildings, and then zoom around the city. A similar effect was used to make part of Iron Man’s heads up display. Keep an eye out in the future for a follow up where we push this effect even further!

    I leave a response when I like a article on a blog or I have something to valuable to contribute to the discussion. Usually it’s caused by the fire displayed in the post I browsed. And after this post Walk Across America with Richard Noble PLEDGE FOR FULL LGBT EQUALITY 2014. I was actually excited enough to drop a thought I do have a couple of questions for you if it’s okay. Could it be just me or do some of these responses appear like left by brain dead visitors? And, if you are posting at additional places, I’d like to follow you. Could you make a list every one of your community sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile? brazzers account generator http://crackcreateworld.com

    Looks like those are many variations of the hud. I decided to make the one in the short video.

    I’m doing this! Unfortunately for me I’m too new to this whole 3D/C4D world.

    Nevertheless I’m pulling the modeling pretty good so far, but the texturing and lightning of course are way off. Once is done I can share with someone with texturing “force power” to have a nice model to share with all and to learn as well.

    Here is the model preview:

    Ok, I’m finished! Considering my many short comings and only 3 weeks of C4D and any 3D this came out awesome! Now the animation is the only thing left.

    Here are the project’s progressively build pictures I took of my hud. The last one is the finished hud.

    Hi I purchased the city kit last week

    I modeled a 3d globe in cinema and extruded the countries.

    But i am unable to use the extruded shape to assign the city buildingd.

    It simply won’t read it.

    Any help would be absolutely appreciated.

    Thanks

    Dan
