Solved it. You skinned Maya to look exactly like C4D. Then you used the 16 year old Autodesk “everything turns into a cube when viewed from the back” bug to pull off your “magic trick”. :smiley:

I actually have a good idea how you really did this, but I’m not a C4D owner right now, so I’ll let someone else win your modeling bundle.


#3

Are there objects/tags in the scene that are being hidden in the object manager by using layers?


#4

Ohh…well…not quite. But using Bugs for Magic is illeagal anyways :thumbsup:


#5

Its not fun if I tell you :slight_smile: But I can tell that I did not use Xpresso or animated parameter.


#6

??


#7

Thats not involved, no.


#8

You bastard, I can’t resist a challenge like this. I’ve finally done it after an hour when I was supposed to be working, but nice one :slight_smile: . I’ll leave the answer and prize to someone else though :wink:


#9

Ok…so You actually solved the Trick. (he sent me a file with the solution). But Matthew was so kind to pass the price to the next one who comes up with the solution.


#10

I will wait for entries till tomorrow and than lift the curtain.


#11

Nothing against the tools of course, I just dont model much and figure someone else would make more use of them :slight_smile:

I’ll just throw out a hint and say that it involves quite a few different areas of c4d. Every time I thought I had come up with a solution, I’d check it against the video and realise my solution wouldn’t fulfil some of the restrictions. eg. I’d do it one way then realise you only had 2 objects visible in the object manager, or Id do it another way and realise something failed as soon as I moved the camera.

:slight_smile: Good one… :slight_smile:


#13

I am happy to announce that we have a Winner. No other than Merk Vilson On Twitter also found the Solution. Tomorrow I will post the Secret.
