Use the Lens Distortion Tool in Cinema 4D Release 17 to create lens profiles that can be used in the Motion Tracker, Lens Distortion Shader and and Lens Distortion Post Effect. Learn how to load a lens grid into the tool and create n-side lines to auto solve the Lens Distortion values. You can also manually adjust the lens distortion values and add a line to evaluate the distortion. Finally, you'll save the profile for use elsewhere in Cinema 4D's Lens Distortion workflow.
Use the Take System in Cinema 4D Release 17 to generate custom render layer passes for flexibility in compositing. See how to set up a shadow catcher pass with the Take System, and easily render multiple takes directly to the Picture Viewer, through Team Render, Team Render Server, or the Command Line interface. See how render elements are composited over the original footage in After Effects for accurate shadows.
Set up flexible filename templates for all your rendered files using Render Tokens and relative paths in Cinema 4D Release 17. Automatically name rendered files based on the project name, take name, render setting name or other scene attributes. The $userpass token provides named object buffers and the ability to sort each pass into its own subfolder. Add new tokens thanks to an extensible API, or use Cineversity's own set of handy render filename tokens.
