C4D Beginner 101 Video Textures1

In the first Beginning C4D 101 quick tip series, I’ll show you how to bring video into Cinema 4D to use as a texture.

 

Hint: if you don’t know how many frames your image sequence has, right click on the folder containing them, get info, and it will tell you how many images are in that folder which will be the amount of frames.

      Thanks for the learning.. Just curious.. why cubic for the mapping? wouldn’t Flat worked just as well without having to deal with the tiling? Also just another note I recently learned. you could use either color channel or Luminance.

      color- allows your video to be affected by the lights in your scene.

      luminance- shows the video as it is natively and is not affected by lights in your scene.

      Hey Rovino, not sure about flat actually. Take a plane, put an image on it, and go to flat. It gets kind of crazy! Let me know if that works for you or not, but cubic seems to work perfect for me…
      As for channels, yes you could put it in the luminance as well, and then the image would “emit” light which is pretty cool! All depends on the look you’re going for. Thanks mate!

      Wonderful tutotial! I was wondering how you could do this vise versa: attach a composotion to your 3D render in After Effects from Cinema 4D (similar to an iPhone model etc)

      Thanks!
