The Third Dimension

Reflecting on Reflectance

As I wrote, the last few days I have been dabbling with the Reflectance stuff in Cinema 4D R16. I pulled one of my old files from my archives and tried to create some reasonably “real” materials. As you see in the first picture, in my work i did not necessarily aim for ultra-realism. Since […]

Glittermania 3D!

Woohoo, as I’m playing around with the Reflectance stuff in Cinema 4D R16, this little gem popped up. I highly recommend giving it a whirl – it’s free, after all – even if the render times explode. This is great insofar it does not slap the ump-teenth noise in your face but really simulates the […]

R16 in da House

After sorting out the mess with the missing parcel and helping out a friend to work out some technical issues on an animation he is working on the last few days, I finally had a chance to play around with Cinema 4D R16 a bit. Naturally, I didn’t have much time to go to deep […]

SIGGRAPH *d’oh*

Is it just me or was this year’s SIGGRAPH boring as in being really dull? Okay, I admit that most of the news would not be relevant to me in terms of actually using the programs, but even in the geek sense I didn’t exactly get a hard-on this time. It seems that all news […]

Cinesoon!

After we had a bit of fun speculating on when the next release of Cinema 4D will hit, we are now considerably closer to the truth. While I was away for a job interview in Berlin, Maxon jumped the gun and released some preliminary info. As always, it’s a somewhat mixed bag and final judgement […]
