  1. This is a fix for CV-ArtSmart Paste not working when you install via CV-Toolbox.

    Problem: A file that handles the clipboard needs its permissions modifying.

    Here is the solution for OS X. It might be a similar method on Windows but I don't have a machine to test.

    Thanks goes to Rick Barrett for providing the information over at the Cineversity Forum.

    Note: I think this may also fix CV-ArtSmart Copy if you were also having problems with that.

  2. In this QuickTip I show you how to toggle the Sub-Division Surface generator (hypernurbs) in C4D, but you can use the technique to toggle between any parent generator!

    It's a very useful shortcut to know especially when you're modelling.

  3. This is a video response to the XPresso method of renaming a MoText or Text spline (MoText has been used throughout this example).

    Add the following code to make your MoText objects reflect their text input in the object manager.

    import c4d

    def main():
    op.GetObject()[c4d.ID_BASELIST_NAME] = op.GetObject()[c4d.PRIM_TEXT_TEXT]

    If you like having the word "MoText" before the text input and say separated by a full stop or period as a way of staying organised, use this line of code:

    op.GetObject()[c4d.ID_BASELIST_NAME] = "MoText."+op.GetObject()[c4d.PRIM_TEXT_TEXT]

    I hope you find it useful and thanks for watching,
    Andy

  4. I was working on a tutorial using X Particles and because the office is very busy today I couldn't record sound.

    The original idea changed as I was working and once I brought the render into After Effects it became something entirely different; I ended up creating some abstract fire.

    I was surprised with the end result considering where I started.

    There may be some tips if you watch my process. Video is unedited and sped up from about 40 mins.

    I'll expand on this if you like - just let me know.

    Thanks for watching,
    Andy
