1. •• Note if your C4D project is set to linear mode and 32bit .exr you dont need to use the Preserve RGB data, just use the linear workflow in your AE comp ••
    •• Also If you render with other geometry behind your object to be blurred, render out an object buffer and use that instead of the alpha, to cut out your moving objects ••

    In this tutorial you will learn how to utilise a motion vector pass from Cinema 4D to introduce motion blur in to your final comp, with RE: Vision Effects Reel Smart Motion Blur Vectors Plugin.

  2. Somebody posted on C4D Cafe asking how to create this type or rig, where the animator is free to move the `character` around whilst the `feet` stay locked down but move outwith a certain area/radius.

    I have also used the Xpresso Raycaster node to implement surface-awareness for the feet.

    Here is a link to a screengrab of the hierarchy and Xpresso setup, nothing too complex, will try and do a tutorial at some point - http://i57.tinypic.com/xomgig.jpg

  3. Using xpresso and python to output random integers on selected interval, and on selected frames.
    I needed this a few days ago, and this this is my solution.
    - I think this is the best practice, because it's a handy way of setting it up. We will have a lot of customizability and the playback time is fast and stabil. I the same setup only with python, but the loop function was running a bit unstable.

    I hope you can use this tutorial. Let me know if you have any questions.

  4. much credit goes to EQUILOUD for this technique, click on over there and give them a tip: vimeo.com/61825060

    if your mesh is freaking out in the end like mine, try changing the interpolation of your tracer, something like b spline + uniform, one of those combos should fix it up
