After 10+ years off from using 3D software (used to be a Lightwave user) I’m really enjoying picking up Cinema 4D. There is one huge frustration though using it’s renderer… flickering/shimmering shadows in animations.
I’m currently doing a GreyScaleGorilla walkthrough, and it all went great except for this problem. Stills looked fine but I noticed bad shadow flickering on the seamless backdrop. I spent days rendering and trying different settings, finally I tried a different texture and upped the render settings and I thought the problem was solved. Nope.
I find the only thing that works is to disable Full Animation Mode for GI Cache Files. But well, then the shadows don’t move at all. I tried once again upping render settings, and THOUGHT I had it fixed but as you can see in the final seconds as the balls are rolling, there is shimmering/flickering in the shadows of the balls.
I guess I can turn off GI, but then the look isn’t the same. Any thoughts?
