Announcement: Cinema 4D Procedural Material Pack

I’m extremely excited to introduce The Pixel Lab “Procedural Material Pack!” Rob Redman and I have teamed up to bring you a very special pack with over 340 C4D materials to help you speed up your workflow and focus on being creative! These 100% procedural materials take full advantage of the new Reflectance channel in C4D! Procedural means that they are infinitely tile-able unlike many other material packs which use image textures and can create seams when you tile them.

Best of all we are only asking $45 for the pack, which should make it very accessible to everyone. Please note that it will only work in R16 and above because of the new Reflectance channel which is used heavily.

    Announcement: Infographics: Graphs and Charts Pack

     

    I’m excited to share our new Graphs and Charts Pack! Simon Spencer-Harvey and I have created 45+ Cinema4D infographic bar, chart and graph rigs! Every single model has an xpresso rig so you can easily change the bar, point, or line heights with sliders. The sliders are also connected to the numerical values, so they go up and down whenever you raise a bar or move a point! We didn’t stop there though. We are also including a fully pre-animated version of each and every model so you can just add them to your scene and already have the animation set up! That means you can either use the included xpresso rig, or you can use the pre-animated xpresso rig, it’s up to you since we have included both versions.

              Cinema 4D Tutorial: How to Edit HDRIs Easily

               

              Simon Spencer-Harvey goes over a technique to export your HDRI image into flat squares so that you can edit them easily in Photoshop. Then he shows you how to re-project your edited images so that they are once again a 360 HDRI in Cinema 4D. This is useful if you want to edit your HDRI and especially if you’re doing any VR scenes and need to customize anything. I hope it’s helpful!
