How to these elements work?

What’s the difference between ProRes and H.264?

The ProRes 422 clips are lossless, giving you professional control of these elements in post production. The downside is that ProRes files can be large, averaging 1 GB per dust element. ProRes should be used in high-end projects that will likely be compressed multiple times before delivery.

H.264 dust elements are compressed elements that still offer high-resolution 4K overlays in a more compressed file format. The H.264 dust elements are perfect for a variety of projects, from web to broadcast. The benefit is a much smaller file size, averaging 24 MB per dust element.

When compositing these elements, the blend modes will remove all the black background leaving only the floating dust elements. Depending on the type of project, you may find the H.264 files to be more helpful, allowing you to work faster with smaller files. H.264 elements will likely be more than enough for daily renders, web videos, desktop and mobile streaming.

Do these 4K Dust Elements work in Cinema 4D?


For motion designers looking to add dust to their renders, we suggest using 3D Dust Particulate. The 3D dust pack includes Alembic files that are Cinema 4D compatible and easy to add to 3D scenes.

If you need both 4K Dust Elements for compositing, and 3D Dust Particulate for renders, get both and save money with the Greyscalegorilla Dust Elements Bundle.

Reflectance got to be too complicated. Topcoat simplifies my life just like HDRI Studio did to help get the look I wanted.

Best HDRI’s on the Net I have searched everywhere!

HDRI Link simplifies workflow and increases productivity by easing the burden when transitioning between different rendering engines in Cinema 4D.

HDRI Link is a shortcut to the end of your HDRI scavenger hunt.

HDRI Link has become my go-to plugin when doing HDRI lighting in Arnold.

I have TopCoat docked in my layout, I use it so much. I’m always throwing on and layering a few things. It’s optimized well, too.

With clients using Redshift, Octane, and Arnold, the ability to hop between them is invaluable. Plus the ability to swap studio presets and save them… I’m not sure how people will be able to work without this.

GorillaCam is what EVERYONE needs to add that extra layer of depth to their animation. I cannot see myself going back to the standard Cinema 4D camera ever.

It’s hard to think that a tiny little tag can change your workflow so dramatically. But HDRI Link does just that.

Light Kit Pro has completely changed how I approach lighting my 3D scenes, making the process quicker and more enjoyable than ever.
