View Full Version : Viewing Normals?

01-15-2007, 10:33 PM
I'm new to Cinema 4D.

The online help seems to imply that there is a way to view Normals using the "Display" menu in R10, but I don't see it.

How do I view normals?

I believe this is a slight confusion. Go to Edit->Configure, and there in the viewport configuration options under the "Display Tab" you will find the options for normals display.

By default in C4D normals are displayed by color rather than line, and when with line only on the selected polygons, however you can change this from these options.

I think you can also view the normal map as a colour map by using the new settings in the a material's illumination tab. No?

Are we talking about poly normals or normal maps?

Sorry, you guys are talking about polys aren't you?

I'll just wait in the corner.
