Greebler C4D Plugin Tutorial Cinema4D1
In this video I’ll show you how to use “Greebler” which is a C4D plugin by Kuroyume’s DevelopmentZone. This plugin basically takes your simple geometry, and makes it look very complicated and detailed instantly.
It’s a really cool concept, with many applications, the most obvious being sci-fi looks. Any time you need more complex, detailed geometry to give the impression of massive detail, this plugin will be very useful!

    Great rundown. Thanks for that. Have you experienced any problems with R13? I noticed the releases on the download page only go to R12.

    • Joren

      Nope, no issues that I can find with R13. I did the tut with R13 too, so everything you see should work fine!

    Anyone having trouble with the Demo in R12? Won’t accept “DEMO”

    Hi Joren,

    Thx again for a exellent quick tut.
    What are your render settings on 01:55 when you make those fast renders. I like the speed and the look of it.

    Thank you.

    Copenhagen, I lit that with regular lights, one in front, one in background, the one in BG had a slight blue tint to it. They had soft shadows on. The key is I turned on Ambient Occlusion to get the really nice shadowy look. No GI for fast renders. Cheers!

    Dan: Yeah, this is something that all of us plugin developers for Cinema 4D have been asking to have fixed for some time. The Maxon License Server will not accept demo time-trials so it must be done in Cinema 4D itself. The only way that I think you could work this is to use Cinema 4D directly without the License Server providing the serial number(s) – either in a separate install or maybe using a Cinema 4D demo install.
