Spline Mesher Modifier

29 Jun

A modifier that meshes a spline in much the same way as the Renderable Spline options in 3dsmax, but offers additional options like using a curve to control the shape.

The curve used to control the shape is the animation curve assigned to the ‘Shape’ channel: it uses the values from 0 – 100 (regardless of any animation range in the scene) as percent along the curve. Watching the quicktime might make it clearer.

Has a grow option, a second curve shape you can blend in, mapping options.

No docs at the moment, most of the spinners should make sense but if you want to enable the seondary shape (which is the ‘shape tip’ channel) the set the ‘Grow Style’ to 1. You then use the ‘Tip Blend Point’ and ‘Tip Blend Range’ to control where and how softly the shape transitions from controlled by the first curve to the second.

Maxon Releases Free After Effects to Cinema 4D plug-in

27 Nov

Cinema 4D and After Effects workflow in action, with an earlier release of Maxon’s exchange plug-in.

Maxon has released a free plug-in enabling After Effects users to import projects directly into Cinema 4D R13.

The tool works with After Effects CS3 and above.

Updated: Previous versions of the plug-in offer support for earlier releases of the two applications, but only permit export from Cinema 4D to After Effects, not vice versa.

 

Press Release (Excerpts)
MAXON, the leading developer of professional 3D modeling, painting, animation and rendering solutions, today announced immediate availability of a new plug-in for Adobe® After Effects® CS5 and CS5.5 that allows motion graphics artists to export projects directly into CINEMA 4D R13. This new capability broadens CINEMA 4D’s domination as the industry-leading 3D motion graphics toolkit, known for its seamless connectivity to popular 2D motion graphics and compositing tools. This new plug-in is the perfect companion to the CINEMA 4D composition import already widely used by broadcast designers worldwide. With the combination of these two plugins, motion graphics artists working on Windows and Mac OS X will enjoy easy data exchange to and from both applications.

The CINEMA 4D export appears directly in the After Effects export menu and generates a .c4d file containing 3D layers, cameras, lights, solids, nulls and footage. Even nested compositions are supported. All major layer attributes including animations (rotation, position, parameter, anchor points, POI, etc.), expressions, layer parenting, layer locking and layer visibility are retained. Render and document settings in CINEMA 4D are adapted accordingly to the After Effects’ project settings.

Pricing and Availability
The new CINEMA 4D R13 exchange plug-in compatible with Adobe After Effects CS3, CS4, CS5 and CS5.5 is immediately available as a free download from the MAXON website.
