  • Smoothing deformer doesn’t seem to affect the stack. Dragged into the appropriate place below Collision. I’m wondering if my older version (R15) could be to blame? :/

  • EJ you’re the man, always my favorite Tutorial guy.
    BTW the EJ link doesn’t work
    Thanks again!

  • Perfect for creating vacuform pieces for packaging renders.

  • Hi EJ,
    thank you for that nice tuto. Like your kind of teaching very much.

  • Hey EJ,

    great tutorial ! Unfortunately my MoGraph text keeps on being visible from under the plane despite following all your instructions. I am running cinema4d R18 so there should be no issues.
    Any idea about how could I solve this?

    Thanks x
