HI anyone have online Links to some complete Character animations rendered from Cinema4D using Just mocca??
(not Cactus Dan’s tools)
I am particularly looking for Soft body Deformation, belly bounces and such.
Some animated hair ,cloth and lipsynch samples would be nice also. Im just looking to see what completed works there are out there using the current C/A toolset of C4D R11 as I am trying to give a recommendation to another person.
Mocca can do pretty much everything you mention (soft body collisions could be simulated using cloth, falloff objects or even mograph displacement deformer), but I think you’ll find that the majority of people doing CA in Cinema will use Cactus Dan’s plugins, simply because they add another level of functionality in some areas and an improved workflow.
I don’t think this is unique to Cinema though, many Maya animators use 3rd party plugins like Stretchmesh and tools for auto rigging etc. The bottom line is that CA is demanding and if there are tools available to make it easier people will use them.
That was my finished assignment for one of my Animation Mentor assignments. Not the greatest, and I will never claim to be an excellent Lighter, texturer, or Renderer, but I just threw in a sky, some GI and it looked good enough for me.
I always dig the Wipix guys stuff, and they go back and forth between using Mocca and using CD tools.
Hi thanks for the links I guess I probably should have mentioned that this guy is NOT interested on doing any “cute” creatures/animals etc
he is a “recovering” poser user:scream:
who want to move up to a professional suite with emphasis on C/A to do stylized human short stories (mostly female Characters)
He claims he’s got about $3000 to invest so
I’ll Direct him to the new Autodesk line
Well, if he’s going for SoftImage or Maya, then I recommend you also direct him to the other three team members he will need to achieve his goals. I can’t speak for Max, but I worked with the other two and working with those alone didn’t really get me anywhere fast. Since I use C4D I am flying through projects by comparison. He will be a recovering Mental Ray user soon.
Best of luck!
The style is surely irrelevant, that is just a matter of modelling to taste. Can you not see from these examples how flexible and capable the animation module is? Was that not the point of your question?
Ehh… its his money he is a big Steven Stahlberg ( Surprise!!)
fan so I dont want to discourage him
by showing him alot of non human examples( excellent though they may be)
so MAX, softimage whatever just anything to wean him off poser for the types of C/A he want to do.
Well this thread seems a bit pointless really as it seems you had your mind made up from the outset. It also seems that you’re trying to suggest that Cinema is not a ‘pro level solution’ which is simply not true.
