Power Cloner is a R13/14 Cinema 4D plugin that implements a totally new concept of cloner tool.
Thanks to its design and flexibility it can be used with success in many fields from Motion Graphics to Architectural design.
The usual limit of the other standard cloner systems is the ability to position and control each single cloned elements. Normally you can position the clones on a surface by selecting a few options like vertex position, surface position, tag selection etc etc. but sometimes it is not so flexible.
So we thinked that joining the power of a Ray tracing system with a cloning system could be a new way of thinking cloner…and this is what we have done.
The principle of use is very easy:

  • use an object and Rays Emitter and project the rays on a polygon
  • you can also control the focus of rays thanks to another object
  • each ray that collides with the polygon becomes a cloned object
  • you can clone any kind of object
    You can use our two special emitter objects called Planar Projector and Dome Projector or you can use all the objects of Cinema 4D that are based on Polygon or Spline (Cube, Sphere, Cylinder, Polygon, Arc, Rectangle, Nside, Spline etc etc)
    Of course we have integrated a lot of options to give you the possibility to control the rays and change clones position, rotation, scale and much more.
    We have also implemented a target modifier that attracts the attention of cloned objects depending on the distance between target object and cloned object.
    Within the plugin bundle it is included also a Spline Cloner that has got the same main powerfull features of the Power Cloner

FOLD IT PLUGIN
Fold It is a Cinema 4D plugin that help users to fold polygonal sheets and create quickly folding/unfolding and pop up effects.

The plugin’s working principle is very simple:

  1. Imagine you want to fold a paper sheet
  2. Take a polygonal sheet and place it on the plane XZ
  3. With the knife tool or other modeling tools engrave the sheet in such a way as to obtain the polygon’s edges in correspondence of the folds of the paper
  4. select the edges to fold and the polygonal area that you have to fold
  5. call the Add Fold tool, an arrow indicating the direction of the fold will be created
  6. set the proper size of the arrow and arrange it according to the desired orientation for folding sheet
  7. repeat this process for all the folds you want to obtain
  8. according to the priority of folding adjust the fold object hierarchy
  9. select the polygonal sheet and call the make joint command, the arrows will be made invisible for any future changes and in their place a joint skeleton will be generated already rigged and weighed ready to be animated using the appropriate controller created by default

You can enjoy yourselves to create popup effects, fold and unfold objects etc etc.

It is a very useful tool for those who make motion graphics or who need to animate quickly and in a nice way the packaging of some boxes of products

For proper operation of the plugin and the automatic weighing of the joints do not cross fold edges

The plugin works with all editions of Cinema 4D R13/14/15 (Prime, Broadcast, Visualize, Studio) and with all cinema 4D compatible engine renderers (V-Ray etc).

Cinema4D and system requirements:
-Cinema4D Version 13/14/15
-OSX Snow Leopard or greater
-Windows 7 32/64 bit or greater

Fold It is available at our plugin section store at price of 19,00 euro + VAT

EASY CHESTERFIELD PLUGIN
Easy Chesterfield is a Cinema 4D plugin that helps user to create Chesterfield effects for pillows, couches, sofas and similar. The principle of use is very simple:

  1. Model your pillow using a quadrangular mesh by matching the center of the folds with the vertices of the mesh
  2. Select them
  3. Press “Create Chesterfield” button, the plugin will modify automatically the object hierarchy and create a chesterfield parametric object. By changing its properties you can change in real time the appearance of Chesterfield.

Within the plugin you find a button cloner tool, if you need you can clone your custom button and place it automatically over the fold centers.
The button will be cloned according to its Z axis position, see video guide below for more information.

The plugin does not require the Mograph module and it’s compatible with all Cinema 4D editions (Prime, Broadcast, Visualize, Studio) and it’s compatible with the principal render engines (Vray, Maxwell etc etc).

You can download it for free at our plugin shopping section:

Hey guys,

we have launched http://fxgapps.com where we have a couple of free Cinema 4D plugins available for download.

There are some older plugins that might still be useful (eg. Disable Materials) and we have a PC2 point cache reader.

We plan to release more of our in-house tools there so check back at the site in the future.

Cheers,
Martin

RegionKing for CINEMA 4D:

Promotext:

RegionKing is a new Tool for CINEMA 4D which helps a lot for setting up scenes for rendering. In many situations it is very time-consuming to setup lights and textures/shaders and find the right rendersettings. You need to do a lot of preview rendering and wait to see results. Also it is difficult to compare the results and rendertimes and revert your Scene to the best version. RegionKing provides you with a workflow that makes this all easy and fast.

I did some work on UvToObject. As always, it is available for download in my plugin distribution from my site. Here is my changelog:

[ul]
[li]Added sort of a documentation. It can be found in the UvToObject folder. The UvtoObject command dialog also got a help button which will open it in the default browser.[/li][li]Moved much of the dialog functionality into a tag on the UvToObject object group.[/li][li]This tag also allows to add more objects easily.[/li][li]Added a new command which scales UV islands so that they have equal texel density afterwards. Works with multi selection (and UvToObject objects).[/li][/ul] I just found a little complication which is the result of (re)writing the changed parts in python.

   If it does not load correctly, which will happen when you used the previous version,        you have to navigate to your preferences directory on your storage device and delete the files [i]directorycache[/i]        and [i]symbolcache[/i]. For example, the path on windows is something like        [i]C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\MAXON\cinema4drXX_something\prefs[/i]. Easiest way to find this is by going to       the preferences dialog in cinema where it is displayed at the bottom. Sorry about that but Cinema does not like       it when a python file (in which most of the gui stuff is now written) appears next to a c++ plugin.

After another long period of not doing anything I have a update for my plugins. As usual, you can find them on my site following the link in my sig.

  • UvToObject now syncs selections,
  • the starfield shader got anti-alias filtering implemented,
  • and ThingsOnSurface got a random rotation setting.

I had to change some things breaking backward compatibility for these shaders. Therefore old scenes will need some adjustment.

Starfield shader suffers from discontinuities at the borders of the texture area. Eventually, I will try a remedy by calculating the shader output from 3D ray directions without going to texture space.

To be honest, I didn’t test this stuff terribly much. Feel free to report issues.

Hi Michael, Thank you for the Update. Transfor Tools is not working with R18. Is there any chance you can fix it and make it also work with Snapping?

greetings, Holger
