I was wondering if in using Messiah I could animate my entire movie,and then connect it to Cinema 4d and add hair to my character.

I saw the new hair plugin or any plugin such as clothing and such and wondering how to add these effects or would there be any problem in adding these effects after animating them in Messiah.


Basically animate in Messiah, then add clothing and hair, put them in scene, etc in C4d.

Is their anything special I need to keep in mind or do I simply animate then add hair to the model later in C4d

Im glad you asked that question because i wanted to know the same thing.. If there was a good way that i could use Cinema 4d for modeling and rendering and Messiah for animation i would switch to C4d in a heartbeat... I can't afford the point oven option just yet..

i'm not sure if point oven supports C4d..but if it does then its your answer.

==> Yup. Why not? I use this workflow most of the time (only I connect with Lightwave).

==> Most likely you're better off with that method (just keep animating in Messiah) and just add the effects (cloth, hair, particles) later in C4D.

==> Well, Messiah is suppose to connect with C4D directly, no? Try connecting Messiah's original plugin of C4D first before purchasing P.Oven.

Thanks Shadowfork, appreciate the reply, cause basically that is what I want to do is make sure my character has hair.

I just add it to the characters model then. That sounds about right.
