Greyscalegorilla Plugins are Fully Compatible with C4D R14

September 24, 2012 - By 

We have officially tested all of the Greyscalegorilla Products with the new Cinema 4D R14 and everything is working great. However, we had one small texture issue with City Kit. A free update (V1.21) has been sent out to everyone who purchased City Kit either directly or though a bundle. Check your email or the email of the person that purchased it for you to get your download link to the update. Please update no matter what version you are on, just incase.

Emails have already been sent out. However, if you did not receive it, please contact support. Be sure to include the email address you used to purchase the product or a copy of your receipt so we can send your update there.

Thanks again for using Greyscalegorilla Products, Kits, Packs and Plugins. We love hearing how they help you get your work done faster or make it even easier to make it beautiful. Stay tuned for more free updates of our products.


Branding Half Rez: Getting Ready For The Big Day

September 17, 2012 - By 

With only 2 days left until Half Rez, it’s been getting really hectic around the studio. We’re getting all the details ready for the big event, starting with a new logo, new buttons, and some 3D Logo animations to show on the big screen. The presentations we have scheduled are looking great, and the run-through went smoothly. This is our first big event, and I think it’ll be a fun one. If you can’t make it, we will be posting most of the presentations on Greyscalegorilla soon after. However, if you were lucky enough to get a ticket, I will see you there with bells on and a beer in my hand. Can’t wait!


Camera Calibration Tutorial Preview Render

September 14, 2012 - By 

A preview of the huge, 2 part tutorial coming next week about the Camera Calibration Tool in C4D R14. I will even try a bit of modeling in this one to build out the scene for the projection. It’s the first time learning a bit about modeling, so this should be an interesting one. The tutorial should be out early next week. But, as always, try to make it yourself before the tutorial is out. Even a small part of it. It’s a great exercise. Until then, have a good weekend!


Seth On Getting Paid For Your Work

September 14, 2012 - By 

A well written reminder from Seth that being competent isn’t all you need to succeed.

…access to tools is no longer sufficient. Everyone you compete with has access to a camera, a keyboard, a guitar. Just because you know how to use a piece of software or a device doesn’t mean that there isn’t an amateur who’s willing to do it for free, or an up and comer who’s willing to do it for less.

It’s true, if someone wants professional work, then he will need to hire professionals. But it’s also true that as amateurs are happy to do the work that professionals used to charge for, the best (and only) path to getting paid is to redefine the very nature of professional work.

Version Number Cinema 4D Icons for OSX

September 6, 2012 - By 

The release of C4D R17 brings us another identical looking Cinema 4D icon. I find myself never knowing what version of Cinema I was working in. Maybe it’s just me and my need to test products on all versions and do tutorials in different versions, but I needed a way to quickly differentiate between different versions. So, I made some icons. I also added some for the Net Renderer and clients since those can get confusing too. Feel free to use them on your different versions or just change your old version of C4D to the R14 icon just to look cool. Either way, here ya go.

How To Change Icons In OSX

  1. Select the Version of the C4D application you want to change.
  2. Right Click and select “Get Info” from the list.
  3. Drag and Drop the NEW icon you downloaded onto the existing one in the Get Info dialog box. (you may need too enter your password)
  4. Enjoy
