A shader could be a good option, that's why i'm also following this path. Why not having both options ?

The shader must be a vector displacement map. But a vector displacement map that work with cinema4d's render engine will not work with vray.(except if you use the displacer)
Really not a big deal to add options to switch channels. But a tangent map will not work on version pre-R14.

One argument for the geometry object is that it could be able to subdivide geometry where it need to. Something like paul's tool --> http://cinemaplugins.com/offerings/adaptive-subdivider/

So we could have a plane, with adaptive subdivider and HOT below. That could be cool.


About 64bits, i wonder if there's a lot of people still working on 32bits version of cinema4D or 32bits OS ?

Hi Valkaari,
yes,I know many freelance graphic designers that still works on 32bit. I hope you consider to do also
a 32bit version of Hot4d

I daresay this will seem regressive but are there any plans to make it compatible with R13?

thanks for the kind words.

I've updated the plug-in. It's now a deformer and it is compatible with R12 and newer. (but still only 64bits)

more informations can be found here

edit :
the vertex map is not refreshed properly at the start of animation. I'll try to fix it.

normalmaps

thanks a lot... this is great!

I konw, that wishes for free plugins are problematic. and as this plug is great as it is! I really do hard to post one wish here, but it could be super usefull to have a shader for displacement and even cooler for normalmapping... just a idea.

anyway thanks a lot!!!

valkaari---Brilliant! Just Brilliant.
Integrating vertex maps was a stroke of genius. So much you can do.
