So I finally got around to purchasing Cinema 4D. Last week I was at my caravan for another work-retreat, this time working on some props, sets and other assets for the film. I thought it would be fun to do a quick couple of dynamics tests (video above) and I also attempted caracter rigging from the new C4D R13 rigging system, the legacy Cinema 4D rigging system and also Cactus Dan’s system. I think the best way for the film will be to work with a combination of all, for example a Cactus Dan rig and an R13 rig for each main character, and maybe just an R13 rig for any ancillary background characters to save time.
The props and the sets are coming along really well, I’m really happy with how everything is turning out so far, they are much better than I envisaged when I began to write the script. I’m not going to show anything final, such as the actual sets, but here are a couple of test images etc… from some recent modelling practice. There’s still a long way ahead of me but how far I’ve come in the recent months is encouraging
