I have Designed the BlueNight Scheme for CINEMA 4D to make the Interface cleaner and more readable in Night-Situations. I have made all Editfields very clear visible with Blue Numbers or Letters and a very Dark Background. Inactive Editfields are melted to the Background so that you easily see where you can change Parameters. Menugroups are now colored differently so you can see the structure of big menus and groups better. I like this especially for Vray Materials and Rendersettings where you get lost in Menugroups. Also I have eliminated all Edge-Effects or Relief-Effects of Buttons. This is just a personal taste. But I like it more. Docked Windows don´t have edges anymore and everything melts together with the Background to make the hole interface simpler and cleaner.
In Addition things like Polygons or Spline Tangents have changed their Colors as well as the Backgroundgradient if you toggle it on. I did many tweaks on this Scheme and it is the product of many hours working with it and tweaking it. I have included a Readme with instructions for the Installation. I hope you like the BlueNight Scheme as much as I do.
In this Tutorial I show the creation of a seamless hightmap and a Dynamic mesh for optimal Rendertimes. I use the Collage Shader for the Tiling. The Collage Shader is a Plugin for CINEMA 4D which you can get at www.tools4d.com when it is released.
The Collage-Shader of Paul Everett will soon be available on www.tools4d.com. Here is a image to show just one example what you can do. You can convert any Bitmap-Image to a procedural seamless Texture with infinite looks.
In this Video you see the hole process of sculpting and Retopologize with the new Release 14 of CINEMA 4D. I use my HB Modeling Bundle for the Retopo-Work you see on the End.
A detailed Tutorial will follow after my Summerbreak.
I have updated my HB Modelingbundle which includes the HB Retoposcripts. Especially for the new sculpting in R14 it is important to have this Update. Everything works in R14 now. I only had to remove some of the snapping functions in the scripts due to a limitation in R14. Maybe this will be fixed in future. Download
Maxon annocunced the new Release of CINEMA 4D. It comes with a sculpting module and modelling enhancements as well as Rendering improvements and the new Exchange format Alembic. And many more Stuff.
